This chapter analyzes the sources, magnitude, and means of financing investments in public and private enterprises after the Korean War. The analysis considers the credit policies relative to economic sectors (e.g., industry, mining, trade, and agriculture); industrial sectors (e.g., social overhead capital and manufacturing); the nature of investment (e.g., “entrepreneurial”, capital-, and technological-intensities in industries, the scale of business), and loan terms. This chapter also evaluates the criteria used to allocate loans, as well as the sources of financial resources obtained by the domestic lending institutions. The government interest rate policy is also examined.

Keywords:   banks, credit policies, domestic financing, domestic lending institutions, interest rate policy, monitoring of loans, non-bank financial intermediaries, unorganized financial market
