The Key To Korea's Success (PHOTOGRAPHY)

Why is Korea such a successful country? It's a combination of factors -

- the people love to read and use the internet (newspapers have grown despite heavy internet use)
- the people work hard
- there is a culture of saving
- there is a culture of family values, and politeness
- there is a culture of respect for education and an understanding and investment in education based on the idea that education is fundamentally important

Beyond their impressive human resources is a very decent level of infrastructure development - Korea's rail network is better than Europes. Having a walled community (albeit temporarily in a sense) also helped develop domestic infrastructure, for example Korea's automobile industry. Once the domestic infrastructure was in place, it was unleashed on the rest of the world - and very successfully.
