Economic Crime and Punishment in North Korea
STEPHAN HAGGARD and Marcus Noland describe North Korea’s prison system. The system includes not only the infamous penal camps for political prisoners but detention facilities that permit short-run incarceration for economic crimes. They find that those with greater involvement in the market are more likely to face incarceration in such facilities and that the criminalization of economic activity allows the state to extract bribes.
