Crushing the competition

It's always nice to see ten year-old girls internalizing zero-sum attitudes in regard to competition.

This reminded me of another RAS lecture from last year by Chong-ae Lee titled "Has Korean Competition Reached its Limit?" It's well worth watching (at that link), as she works at SBS and had clearly worked on programs related to the topic. The lecture is full of survey results and statistics which show just how much Korean society - in particular the education system and job market - resembles the picture above.
