If North Korea had an economic collapse... how would we know?
Do we have a satellite for that?
Seriously... how would we ever know that the world’s lowest-ranking closed “economy” “collapsed”?
They have been in famine for a couple years now. They are always in a state of economic collapse.
Something very bad must have happened for this alarm to go out.
“how would we ever know that the worlds lowest-ranking closed economy collapsed?”
Cognac sales would be down 400%
When the scrawny Nork guards down on the DMZ miss a couple paychecks and lunches and start looking the other way to allow Nork refugees to cross into the SouK we’ll know. Same thing will be true along the Yalu River which is already easier for Norks to swim into China. The Chicoms claim there are as many as 50K Norks already working their way south thru China on any given day. The South Gooks will no doubt start complaining and the Chicoms will bellyache a little also asking for international assistance to help the starving Norks. It’ll be obvious. If nothing else think Syria where people are bailing in every direction.
