Aaaagh

I get a good day's sleep (stupid lagged body) and wake up to a deluge on LJ. Mostly from two people. Here's a sample:

I never hear about US sex tourism to Canada. Not that I've looked around to hear such things.

Mystery of prosperity: North and South Korea had the same per capita incomes for two decades, before diverging:

Fascinating stuff - I'd need more data, but one lesson might be that it takes better infrastructure and education time to start making major changes. Alternately, perhaps something important changed between 1970 & 1980 in either North or South Korea.

It's also interesting to note that Kim Jong-il took power in 1994, and seemed to have been considerably worse than Kim Il-sung (which is not an easy feat) - I hadn't known that the GDP of North Korea dropped by around 50% shortly after he took power.

Other one what? Link source? James. I don't know if any of his survived to the short list above.
