This chapter offers an empirical investigation of how decisions regarding national R&D investments are made in Korea. We are interested in locating structural problems within the Korean NIS in the face of globalization and mad technologies through a system of dynamic simulation and modeling. In so doing, we intend to devise ways of ameliorating problems within the NIS investment decision-making process by providing policy implications. Korea offers an interesting testing ground for a system of dynamic modeling because of the drastic changes in the NIS sector which have occurred as a result of rapid economic development and its combative response to the threat of mad technologies.
