North Korea Starts Down Path of Reform
Andrei Lankov, Korea Times
In recent months, it appears increasingly likely that the North Korean government is gradually switching to a reformist path, largely in emulation of China. This is welcome development, to be sure. A reforming North Korea, if it manages to survive and remain stable (two big ifs indeed) in some regards will remain a rather unpleasant place. But this transformation will mean significant improvements for the average person there (and outsiders too).
