Abstract
The purpose of this study is to describe and analyze South Korea's development process in comparison with Kenya. Based on how decision-makers in both countries have implemented the development and growth policies from the 60´s.
The analysis shows that South Korea has applied the three macro-economic growth theoretical models and managed to get the growth engine in motion. Kenya, however, has failed to apply the three macro-economic growth theoretical models as in South Korea, which explains why the Kenyan economy has not grown the same way as in South Korea. Pogges normative global theory as another perspective indicates the economic failure in former colonies such as Kenya is in part due to the negative effects of colonialism and... (More)

Kenya, however, has failed to apply the three macro-economic growth theoretical models as in South Korea, which explains why the Kenyan economy has not grown the same way as in South Korea. Pogges normative global theory as another perspective indicates the economic failure in former colonies such as Kenya is in part due to the negative effects of colonialism and neocolonialism.
In conclusion, a key to a positive change in the Kenyan economy lies partly in a reform of the global institutional order. There is a need for a global process that provides incentives to former colonies such as Kenya to develop. It is also equally important to Kenya to apply the three macro-economic growth theory models to achieve sustainable growth. These two processes coalesce can enable the Kenyan economy to expand positively, like South Korea. (Less)
