Peterson Institute blog highlights “fascinating” paper on North Korea’s economic policy

Lecy  on patterns of economic policy change in North Korea.    PIIE’s Marcus Noland says that Choi and Lecy provide a “fascinating” analysis, using an innovative method of textual analysis to trace the evolution of thinking by North Korean policymakers.  Choi and Lecy conclude that changes to the economic system “follow a pattern of punctuated equilibrium catalyzed by political crisis — but changes are foreshadowed in the policy discourse.”  Read the article.
