Path to inter-Korean economic integration : Gradual merger within temporary separation

Related Document
Frame of Image nd simultaneous political and economic unification or fast political unification coupled with gradual economic unification. ○ The latter track would have the North Korean and South Korean economies remaining apart for a designated time period after political unification. During this temporary arrangement, the North Korean economy would be managed as a special zone and two different economic systems would continue to coexist on the peninsula.  The objective of this paper is to explore methods of running the economy in North Korea and of gradually integrating the economies of the North and South during a designated time period. It assumes both sides have agreed to rapid political unification but opted for a moderate pace in merging their economies. ○ The operation and integration of the economic system will naturally span various areas, including the labor market, currency and finance, health and medical care, and trade. However, in this paper, the focus will be placed on the labor market, which will be a key sector while the two economies remain separated, and social security areas such as employment insurance, pension, and public assistance, which will be important in terms of political and social stability and the cost of unification.
