The abrupt appointment of Mr. Lim as Deputy Prime Minister created yet another complication. Before the financial crisis, Mr. Lim had spent some time at the World Bank as Korea’s Representative Director. Mr. Lim’s tenure at the World Bank overlapped with Lawrence Summers’ term as Vice President for Research for the World Bank. Somehow, the encounter between these two gentlemen was not a happy one.

Capital markets have been deepened. Chaebols turned to capital markets to raise financing, helping to develop one of the largest bond markets in Asia. The stock market has also grown rapidly, and foreign investors now account for about a third of market capitalization.

As rollovers were refused, the limited foreign reserves rapidly depleted. An internal memorandum prepared by the Bank of Korea on December 18, which took into account both the inflows of foreign funds expected during the ensuing 12-day period plus the foreign reserve balance on hand and the outflows expected to take place during the same period, showed that the foreign reserve balance expected on December 31 would be anywhere from negative $600 million to positive $900 million.
