Research Overview

I have been examining the economic policy of North Korea. I am particularly interested in whether or not North Korea will actually embark on reform and opening of its closed economy, and what the effects would be if these policies were to be taken. The foundation for this sort of inquiry is the research I have done in the past on various topics, concerning the North Korean economy: estimation of industrial production indices (1944 to the 1970s), estimation of GDP in the 1950s, agricultural policies in the 1960s, history of economic policies from the end of the World War II to the 1990s, the food crisis and agricultural policies in the 1990s, food imports from the 1990s onward, and estimation of terms-of-trade indices for trade with China.
