Charles Schulz, the creator of Peanuts, the beloved American comic strip, was the very definition of a cartoonist who hated provocation....In the late 1960s and 70s Schulz had a squeaky clean image.

To put that growth in context, in 1965 the country was poorer than Bolivia and Mozambique—even North Korean per capita income was three times greater. Today, South Korea is richer than Saudi Arabia and generates nearly four times more output per person than China. During this miraculous economic ascent, chaebol policy was rarely questioned, and with good reason. South Korea’s top 10 family conglomerates have become some of the world’s most successful and admired brands—household names like Samsung, Hyundai, and LG—and account for roughly 80 percent of the country’s GDP. Without them, South Korea would look more like emerging Vietnam than developed Japan, the only other Asian country to join the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s club of “developed” economiesThe Atlantic
