Finding A Way Out Of North Korea

Produced by

As the economy has collapsed in North Korea, a new emerging market economy has begun to germinate. This will likely be more powerful than politics in terms of change. Young North Koreans know about – and at times gets their hands on – illegal cell phones, and that opens up information. Dick speaks with Sokeel Park of the U.S.-based NGO Liberty in North Korea about this and the slowdown of people escaping North Korea as security has tightened in the past year or so.
