A talk by Dr. John Park (Faculty Affiliate, Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Research Associate, MIT) on the topic: "Why is North Korea's elite getting richer under sanctions?" Amid increasing sanctions, North Korea's elites have prospered. What explains this puzzle? Drawing on interviews with former North Korean state trading company managers, Dr. John Park will highlight how the regime's accumulated learning in evading sanctions has created new commercial pathways. Increasing use of middlemen in China and Southeast Asia has enabled North Korean elites to procure and sell strategic goods by hiding in the open. The implications for the U.S.' approach to dealing with North Korea are profound, yet largely under-examined. This video was suppor...

In the last episode of 2014, Scott Galloway names the winners (Nike, L’Oréal Paris and North Korea) and losers (Sony and Tesla). Tesla motor company has garnered an unbelievable valuation, almost 9 times sales versus General Motors and Ford who have less than a 1x sales valuation. Known primarily for innovation, Tesla's digital footprint doesn't live up to this reputation. The brand has a strikingly weak mobile site. One in ten consumers pull up auto information on their smartphone when in a car dealership. Who does this well? Mercedes Benz, Porsche and Volkswagen. Look for Tesla stock to slide down; the company is overvalued. A big winner this week? Nike, with revenues up 15% YoY at 7.5 billion dollars and profits up a staggering 23% for 2014. Nike also had the two most-viewed ads on ...
"Former NBA star Dennis Rodman, better known now for bizarre behavior than anything he ever did on the court, launched into an unintelligible rant against a CNN anchor on Tuesday during an interview from North Korea, where he is on his fourth visit in less than a year. Rodman, 52, brought six fellow retired professional basketball players to the rogue country for a game against the North Korean national team Wednesday, the 31st birthday of dictator Kim Jong Un. The trip has drawn reproving statements from the National Basketball Assn. and its retired players' affiliate, as well as from human rights advocates and democratic governments concerned that the purported goodwill gesture sends the wrong message to a ruthless leader."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it d...

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was "the best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 14, to begin a life in hiding, as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope -- and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.
