From the Paper:

"Both countries started their economic success with similar backgrounds. None of the countries have any natural resources and therefore have to rely heavily on imported raw materials. They have a Confucian background. They experienced an American influence due to the "occupations". The Americans also drew up their constitutional frameworks and land reforms. Again it was the Americans who were the main donators of aid to rebuild the countries after the World War II and the Korean War respectively and later was the main export market for their goods. However, by now Japan and Korea have diversified their export market."
