Title IFES Publishes Book on Past Ten Years of North Korea’s Economic Policies
Date 2021.04.08
Type [News]
The Institute for Far Eastern Studies of Kyungnam University is pleased to announce the publication of the book The Economic Policies of the Kim Jong Un Era – 101 Questions and Answers.
In general, the book (352 pages, in Korean) asks three basic questions about the North Korea economy: (1) What problems does the North Korean economy face? (2) What policies have been implemented to resolve these problems? (3) How well have these policies performed? From the three broad angles of ‘systems’, ‘mainstay industries’, and ‘science and technology’, the authors examine the last ten years of developments in the country’s economic policies under the Kim Jong Un leadership.
The publication includes a companion sourcebook (202 pages, English and Korean), which summarizes each chapter’s key assessments/findings in a reader-friendly Q&A format.
