Korea conquering a crisis
In 1997, Korea was brought to the verge of economic collapse. Using intensive crisis management and a historic bailout of $21 billion, Korea quickly began to reverse the effects of a buildup of bad banking debt and excessive short-term borrowing. This program examines the measures used to engineer Korea's comeback, such as adjusting interest rates, creating new bank lending practices and encouraging corporate debt reduction.; In English and Korean with English subtitles.
