Kim Jong-un: DPRK's economy is growing despite sanctions

71
The line on the parallel development of the economy and the nuclear program was correct - the DPRK’s national economy shows growth this year, reports RIA News the statement of the leader of the republic Kim Jong-un



The current situation proves that our party advanced along the correct path of parallel development of economic construction and building nuclear forces and vigorously advanced along the path of Juche (based on Juche ideas) socialism. Despite the cruel sanctions of the United States and its satellites, the national economy has grown,
said Kim Jong-un at the plenum of the Central Committee of the Korean Workers' Party.

According to him, "it is necessary to strengthen self-reliance, to thwart attempts to unleash a nuclear war and the heinous intrigues of sanctions."

The DPRK leader declared that nuclear weapons are “sword, allowing nations to enjoy a happy life under a blue sky, breaking up nuclear clouds of violence”, it is also “deterrent forces that protect peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and in North-East Asia ".

He added that Washington "is fabricating resolutions on UN Security Council sanctions to destroy the sovereignty of the DPRK and is raging in its death agony."

"The forces of science and technology are the main lever in order to break the machinations of the United States" and "achieve progress in building a socialist economic power."

Recall that the course for parallel development of the economy and nuclear and missile programs was announced at the first 36 years Congress of the Korean Workers' Party in May 2016.

        So nobody wants it. Nobody wants South Korea with all its industry to be dusted. And Seoul is destroyed on the first day. Integrate into the global economy, develop and there will be no questions.
        "A sword-treasurer, allowing peoples to enjoy a happy life under a blue sky, dispersing the nuclear clouds of violence"

        He said it beautifully, but other statements raise the question of adequacy
        Despite the brutal sanctions of the United States and its satellites, the national economy has grown,

          The problem is that they don’t believe anyone. Who will let them into markets that are already divided? They will only have the labor market. Once they lift the sanctions and threats, they will calmly go in for tourism (millions will want to see the last closed country in the world). And they will replace the military atom with a peaceful one. A shortage of energy and finances will allow them to abandon it.

            DPRK does not want, Russia does not want. But for the United States and China, I would not dare to say so.

            But in general, according to the news. It's true. In just one year, they increased the import of alcohol, bananas and chocolate from China at times. If it were all bad, would they at times increase such imports?

          2. Absolutely fair saying.
          3. The “free” labor force receives free education, medicine, housing, a cheap communal apartment from the state. Does not pay taxes.
          Since the state works in the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population, the increase in wealth at the general level is not so noticeable. But during the reign of Kim Jong-un, the standard of living has increased significantly. Like it or not ...

        I can say one thing to justify Kim Jong-un's leadership style. Not afraid of sanctions, he was the first to give a damn about the open threats of the “world gendarme” with a population six times smaller than in the Russian Federation. See the statistics:

        This suggests that the country has a future. And it’s time for the Russian president to decide on the DPRK, from which cooperation our country can only win. And Putin can go down in history as a man who united both Koreas ...

I want to say that the day will probably come when sanctions will be imposed on both some EU countries and the USA, and this will be noticeable enough for the latter.
        Well, now, with these sanctions, the United States reminds me of the policeman who distributes fines to the left and to the right, in full confidence of his impunity.

      You can ... you can believe it ... as we recall, the USSR fell apart for purely economic reasons as a result of the decay of the top of the CPSU party, unable to adapt to the changing situation in the world.
      The Chinese in this regard turned out to be smarter than the CPSU POLITBUROU and now CHINA is on the rise ... the slogan one country two systems proclaimed by the communists of CHINA allowed to save both the country and the economy.
      EUN is by no means a fool and skillfully balances on the razor's edge between war and peace.

              They put at the head of the country a populist who had no idea about the economy (figuratively speaking, they gave the combine to steer an ocean liner during a storm in the port .. hehe) and the result of his actions was not long in coming.

Today, all products are imported, and domestic shortages. The USSR could not produce consumer goods? Can modern Russia produce consumer goods? Why do we have a Products website from China? That is why today we cannot produce goods for the people, and China can? But there is no planned economy today. winked And then, all the same, the basis of all political events is the economy ... the well-fed and well-to-do citizen will not destroy his state. winked In the EU, well-fed citizens hired refugees and themselves agreed to increase the retirement age to pay benefits to migrants. In Moscow, Muscovites dodged so cleverly that Moscow looks more like an Asian city. In the 90s, the well-fed and snickering nomenclature decided to live even better, and the most disadvantaged residents of the USSR, Muscovites, decided to make a revolution. laughing Also panimash economy lies! wassat Today the people are well-fed and wealthy!

    Maybe you want to buy a North Korean passenger car instead of the same Korean KIA? Or something else? It’s not worth wishful thinking (that everyone will trade), even if you imagine that in the blink of an eye all sanctions will be lifted. What do they have for the whole world to buy from them?
    In the spring they had a drought, the yield was about one-third lower than 310 thousand tons instead of 450. It is not yet clear how it will be, how it comes up on the DPRK food program, but it turns out that the economy is developing. Maybe coal production increased due to the fact that sanctions were imposed and China and Russia stopped or significantly reduced their purchases?

    Do sanctions revive industry? Andrei. The only noticeable revival is agriculture. Something is inconspicuous for there to be a revival in the aircraft industry, shipbuilding, machine tool industry and, in general, in the same heavy industry. Of course, the same sanctions played a positive role in our economy, but to say that they revived industry, something is not very successful. In our neighboring city (well, almost the region of the regional center), an automobile assembly plant is being built. For several years now. But not our cars will be produced, but the Chinese. Growth? Probably, but again the assembly plant, and not the whole cycle ...
    As for the growth of the Koreans .... Something may be growing, but the fact that the economy climbed up something they can not believe.

    The question is a little different. And who is buying this? More precisely, what percentage of the population if their wages are extremely low (they say that they are about $ 10) and most food products are distributed according to the coupon scheme. Such shops sometimes remind me of shops of the Birch system in the USSR. When it was possible to go into them (if you have something to pay) and see shelves breaking from goods. And no queues (in the mid-70s). That's just not all could buy.
    In these exemplary stores, only a certain contingent of reasonably well-paid workers can probably be bought.

      In our city, there are also shops in which I simply do not go because of the high prices there and shop in "network" stores where the prices are lower but the quality of the products is not up to par and someone cannot afford it and this is mainly bought markets where the quality of goods and products is even lower.

      You will not believe there is something to trade.
      Maybe you want to buy a North Korean passenger car instead of the same Korean KIA? Or something else?

      I don’t believe it, but I would buy a North Korean passenger car, if there was such an opportunity. Because even if the technical level is not the same as that of KIA, there are no such “bells and whistles”, but the build quality is not worse in any way. Yes, and the price for any cheaper than the same KIA. In principle, a very not even a bad "budget" version of a passenger car.
      You should not give out wishful thinking (that everyone will trade), even if you imagine that in the blink of an eye all sanctions will be lifted. What do they have for the whole world to buy from them?

      There are many things ... For example:
      http://in24.org/economics/28752
      Experts estimated the potential value of undeveloped mineral reserves in the DPRK at 2,79 trillion dollars. This was reported by the South Korean agency Yonghap with reference to the report of the mining company Korea Resources.

      Analysts estimate that there are 14 times more resources on the territory of the DPRK than in South Korea. 38 companies are involved in their development, 33 of which are Chinese, and contracts have also been concluded with companies from Japan, France and Switzerland.

      In the spring they had a drought, the crop was removed by about a third less than 310 thousand tons instead of 450

      Again, where are the numbers, from whom ..? Source do not indicate ..? Secondly, what exactly is the crop ..? Rice, corn, potatoes, wheat, cabbage or what exactly ..? Otherwise, it is nothing more than an informational stuffing without any evidence.
      It is still unclear how it will happen next, how it generally comes around on the DPRK food program,

      Don’t worry. You are so. Everything is fine with the food program. I myself was there in the summer and saw with my own eyes.
      as for the growth of the Koreans .... Something may and is growing, but the fact that the economy climbed up something they can not believe. The launch of a dozen new missiles certainly indicates that the industry has reached new frontiers, but it is not the locomotive of the economy ...

      Oh how ..! Those. in all other countries, the military-industrial complex, and specifically the production of rockets, can be the engine of the economy, but the Koreans do not ... I wonder why ..? Why are Koreans so exceptional ...?
      And you will not sell missiles for export.

      Why so..? Russia doesn’t sell its missiles for export .. well, except for the ICBMs .. Yes, and the Koreans back in the 90s and even in the nulls quite successfully sold their missiles for export.
      For DPRK, this may be growth, but doubts nevertheless cause

      And you need this to give growth for your country or for the whole world.? Well, it’s natural that this is growth for the DPRK.
      The question is a little different. And who is buying this? More precisely, what percentage of the population if their wages are extremely low (they say that they are about $ 10) and most food products are distributed according to the coupon scheme.

      Buy a variety of segments of the population up to students and senior citizens. As for their salary, then I do not know, again, where do you get such numbers. As far as I know, North Koreans don’t really like talking to foreigners about their salaries. Well, 10 dollars there is quite good money. At the official rate of 1 dollar = approximately 120 with something North Korean won. This is the local currency. But they change at the so-called shadow rate, it is much higher, which is about 7-8 thousand won per dollar. And in the same stores the videos of which I posted padded jacket All prices are in local won only. And they are quite affordable. Because there are a lot of buyers and the most different. I was in these stores and I saw it myself. Including in the same "Kwanbok".
      Such shops sometimes remind me of shops of the Birch system in the USSR. When it was possible to go into them (if you have something to pay) and see shelves breaking from goods. And no queues (in the mid-70s). That's just not all could buy.

      Foreign exchange stores such as "Birch" in the USSR, too, are there, but these are completely different stores. There, by the way, those DPRK citizens who worked abroad, for example, in Russia, have foreign currency upon arrival home. And there are quite a lot of such people in the DPRK.
      In these exemplary stores, only a certain contingent of reasonably well-paid workers can probably be bought.

      This is not true. Almost everyone can buy them. Another thing is that many prefer other shops, small ones, where they do not take foreigners and do not show on TV. But the prices there are lower. And they are gradually moving away from the card system. Although there, too, everything is not as it was in the USSR.

    Lyokha! The deficit was created to embitter the masses. To push their protest moods. And so many goods were of domestic production, import deficit. Today, all products are imported, and domestic shortages. The USSR could not produce consumer goods? Can modern Russia produce consumer goods?

    ---------------------------------
    Somehow, the hand does not rise to call the hunger strike arranged by Gorbachev and K. deficit. Comrade Brezhnev, despite the sanctions, managed to purchase a lot of equipment for the production of clothes and shoes, cigarettes, instant coffee for the Olympics-80. CMEA was functioning successfully, a kind of market of socialism, they also mastered their production and import was coming from CMEA. And suddenly in 1986 everything began to disappear, up to the Kirov matches made using the technology of the 1930s. Why would it be? It’s clear that interruptions in the trading system began to suit the influential comrades, and they began to do this since the 1970s. Remember the famous Raikin’s “let everything be, but something will be missing” or Akhejakova in “Office Romance” has “good boots, we must take it.” We had the whole of Mongolia in submission, we could quietly provide the country with chrome jackets and sheepskin coats too. Again, our "ministers of agriculture" stubbornly tried to arrange a granary from the Non-Black Earth region, and the Kursk region to take up poultry and sheep breeding. There was no one to tell the ministers about the whole system of the scientific research institute? Why send echelons to nobody there that need vodka to Asia and the Caucasus? Is it complete nonsense. Or Russian books? Or mink coats to send sunny Andijan? It is difficult to consider this as managerial nonsense. This is ordinary sabotage.
    And for some reason, the Nazi-Gaidarites did not need to create a small business from the accumulations of citizens in order to build a “market.” They needed to depreciate these savings and privatize energy, metallurgy, and national subsoil. How did this help the market, we saw. And by the way, for all for some reason they didn’t release a single prisoner, but immediately began to tear up the Soviet public property. Such was the "movement towards the market and socialism with a human face." For some reason, they built the wildest type of colonial capitalism, with murders on microloans and mortgages. And all of them are to blame for Stalin, who built them all.
