- Taiwan"s capital accumulation was due to the correspondence between structural changes in world economy and industrial policy. In other words, the capital accumulation was achieved in the process of internationalization of productive capital to break through the crisis of capital accumulations in advanced capitalist states.
In Taiwan, the capital accumulation constructed the class structure fitted to democratization by growing the new middle class and working class. The configulation of the class structure changed according to the stages of accumulation. The working class increased in the period of export substitution and the augment of the new middle class was remarkable in the period of intensive accumulation.
Fordism characterized by mass production and consumption made the level of inclusion on the social class go up and contributed to construct a political system on the consensus. In this structure, Taiwan"s democratic transition was led by negotiation between the ruling forces and the opposition forces.
