Yet, to have a well-functioning capital market, relatively high levels of per capita income are necessary. This problem was acknowledged even by Balassa (1975:375) who argued that, the development of capital markets is a function of the general process of economic development. The Theoretical Background 25 Thus, it is not surprising that late industrialized countries such as Germany and Japan, and NICs such as Korea and Taiwan, which for being late comers could not afford to wait for a gradual development of the capital markets, have turned to what Zysman (1983) called creditbased systems.
