I wonder what will happened to North Korea after his death. Hopefully the communism regime will fall in next 2-3 years.

Well, at least we are not dying of hunger… :stuck_out_tongue:

Well put. Anyways, the sad truth is that some other idiot will probably replace him and be just as bad, if not worse than he is.


#8

That’s sorta how it always happens with any kind of government though, right?

[edit]And ya, there are times when someone comes along and actually is better.


#9

yes


#10

Any word on what happened to this guy? North Korea obviously is saying he’s just fine, and it appears no one is entirely sure if he’s okay, sick, almost dead, or dead…

It’s always so … confusing when a foreign leader could be sick, especially one the U.S. and most of the western world doesn’t like.

No problem.

If the FED measured the inflation of cost of living properly (even in the mid-late 90s) and actually followed their primary mandate to control inflation, then credit wouldn’t have been excessively cheap 7-3 years ago and this credit crunch wouldn’t have happened. Ironically, 4-7 years ago, it was mostly those of the Austrian school of economics who were predicting a credit crunch (due to the artificially low rates) and those guys tend to be more capitalist than your average economist.

Plus if the individuals involved in running certain organizations actually had real responsibility (serous gaol time) for the collapse of their organizations, rather than relying on corporation law and government bail-outs, then there would be more incentive to properly control the level of risk taken.

As for Kim Jong-il, hopefully his successor will appreciate the factors (market economy) that has transformed the economies of certain other east Asian countries.
