What were the specific elements of this idealized “modern” legal system circa the 1960s? Law was to be the instrument by which reformist Third World governments would bring about social change in the direction of socially responsible capitalism and pluralist democracy. This view entailed both a faith that Third World states were committed to the public interest, and a faith that law could be made potent and predictable enough to serve this social engineering function. Beyond this view, law and development efforts focused on legal education.

In addition, if the developmental state theorists are correct, then dependency theory’s specific distrust of the Third World state, one of its critiques of the modernization school, must be tempered. Furthermore, Northeast Asia’s climb up the world systems hierarchy did not merely coincide with a global economy; rather there is near universal agreement that engaging in world markets was key to their achievements. 52 In fact, while one would have to search long and hard to find a country that has moved up the hierarchy by religiously following a free-­market, free-­trade orthodoxy, it would be equally hard to find lasting success among countries that have taken the de-­ linking advice of the dependency school very seriously.

Northeast Asia’s legal systems have been consistently described as comparatively unfriendly to litigation, a characteristic that was partly responsible for relatively low litigation rates and a reliance on non-­judicial settlement of business disputes. While it may be that this approach hindered economic development, or was simply irrelevant, it is at least possible that they settled closer to the ideal point on the continuum than the United States, for example. In any case, this experience demonstrates that one ought to ask whether a legal system creates roughly appropriate incentives to private litigation, yet this question seems absent from much law and development writing.
