Abstract
While New Public Management is becoming an established program
for improving the quality of public administration, this study redirects our attention
to the merits of an older system. Some of the public administration mechanisms
that were reformed with the advent of democratization and globalization are
argued in this study to have worked better than their newer versions. Using the
Korean example, this study demonstrates that liberal political reforms may be
harmful for public management, contrary to the usual expectations about their
benefits. In the Korean bureaucracy, the disruption of deferred compensation—
attractive post-retirement employment as a reward for policy performance during
ones tenure as a civil servant—impaired its organizational capacity, as policy
autonomy dropped and corruption increased within the bureaucracy.
