Abstract

While China's economic accomplishments have been recognized by many specialists, arguments have been raised against considering it as a valid model for other countries to study. China's size, population, natural resources, and political system, it is said, are so particularly Chinese that it cannot be taken into account when discussing general problems of economic development. In this light, one can only deplore that another, much smaller Asian country, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), with characteristics similar to those of many other countries around the world, has until recently been relatively ignored.
