Lecture summary:
In connection to the recent nuclear missile threats from North Korea, many observers wonder whether the North Korean economy is improving under Kim Jung Un’s new regime. However, not enough information is available to investigate the current status of the North Korean economy, because the North Korean government does not officially release economic data. This lecture seeks to come to an understanding of today’s North Korean economy using available information from diverse sources.

Professor Kim Sei-Wan is currently Professor of Economics at Ewha Womans University, Seoul. He also serves as the Associate Vice President for Financial Affairs at his institution. Previously, Professor Kim taught at California State University-Fullerton and Texas A&M University. Professor Kim received his Ph.D. in Economics from Texas A&M University.
