A North Korean Disaster

Fire of Liberty

If you want to discover how the government in North Korea is living high on the hog while its everyday citizens live in a horrific state of starvation and poverty, then I recommend you check out Claudia Rosett's review of Stephan Haggard's new book Famine in North Korea: Markets, Aid, and Reform in today's New York Sun.

*Also, check out Nicholas Eberstadt's The North Korean Economy: Between Crisis & Catastrophe.
