Description

The POSCO Strategy brings to life one of the world's great industrial success stories. Expertly told by William T. Hogan, an accomplished commentator on the global steel industry, the work traces the meteoric rise of South Korea's Pohang Iron and Steel Company and the incredible impact it has had on this small agrarian country. In a mere quarter of a century POSCO has grown to become the largest steel company in the world and has dragged South Korea into the industrial age. The book not only provides a blueprint for the world's steel industry but offers an incredible case study to students of modern Asian economic history seeking to understand how a non-industrialized economy can be so dramatically modernized by the development of a single industry.show more
