Sanctions of Mass Destruction

Posted in north Korea by what's left on October 3, 2007

Tim Beal and Don Borrie challenge the view that north Korea’s recent economic difficulties are attributable to mismanagement, pointing to new sanctions as the likely cause of economic contraction after seven consecutive years of growth.

One of the advantages of sanctions for US foreign policy, they write, is that its effects, “those malnourished babies – can be blamed on the Koreans, which in turn is produced as evidence that the sanctions are desirable and necessary.”

    The link isn’t working. Couldn’t find report with a search of Victoria site either. Is the report posted anywhere else?
