Doesn't North Korea have cheapest labor? What are profiteers & parasites thinking?


Isn't North Korean labor even cheaper than Chinese labor?
Why don't globalist corporations move some of their factories from China to North Korea and flood the West with even cheaper goods made in North Korea?
Doesn't North Korean regime understand that higher North Korean GDP means more money for its military, police, propaganda, secret offshore accounts, etc.?

They have. Products made in South Korea were labelled "Made in the Republic of Korea". When they moved their factories to North Korea that label was changed to "Made in Korea". A lot of LG products have had this label in the last few years.

What good is moving your factory to NK when the government can just take it off you???

Not worth the risk.

It is obviously worth the risk because some companies have already done it. As far as I know it is only Chinese and South Korean companies so far, not western ones.

Don't know for sure, but wouldn't the U.N. santctions be a big negative against manufacturing in & trying too export goods from NK?

Why would anyone want to move a factor to a country with a high risks: of being nuked or having it's government overthrown?
It's China to the much safer Indonesia

Could the OP explain to me what this thread has to do with history and especially philosophy, political science and sociology?

He's a cut cuddly mini-Mao and as much of a joke as Dr. Evil in Austin Powers. So he has nukes but he knows if he uses them he's dead. He will not gives them up as disarming countries of their WMD is the first step before an American invasion and Dictator with them would be a fool to ever give them up. Let watch and see how good a negotiator Trump is.
