Quotes

"Pyongyang apparently practiced an EMP attack with its KSM-3 satellite that passed over the U S heartland and over the Washington D C -New York City corridor."
Supreme leader Kim Jong Un published famous works including "On Effecting a Drastic TurnTurn in Land Management to Meet the Requirements for Building a Thriving Socialist Nation" indicating a specific orientation and ways for improving the road administration
One foreign businessman who visited Pyongyang early this month said, "When Kim Jong-il was in power, North Koreans of all ranks parroted the same opinions, but this time it was different. There were quite aa lot of North Koreans who complained about Kim Jong-un and senior party and military officials."
ChairmanSalmon on the hearing: "Rule of law, predictability, and strong democratic institutions are vital in providing the confidence investors need to bring economic opportunity, growth and jobs to any given country. Latin America is rich in resources and human capital, but many countries in the region are plagued by corruption, weak institutions, and leaders who systematically erode democratic values. Argentina's continued flouting of past debt obligations places what should be a vibrant economy at risk ofanother default. Market unfriendly regulations in Brazil, Ecuador, and Bolivia have similarly shaken investor confidence, affecting economic growth in the region. This hearing will give my Subcommittee the opportunity to examine where confidence has been shaken, how U S economic interests are affected, and what if anything the United States can do to encourage greater transparency and market friendly approaches throughout the Americas. The dire situation in Central America is a perfect example of how weak institutions and endemic corruption can have corroding effects on economic growth and opportunity."
