Ave, Yangban!

If you haven't already, be sure to check out the Flying Yangban's recent piece about anti-reunificationism and the Gaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea. I'm a little bit dubious about citing a single business example and applying it to the wider peninsular situation (especially when there are so many pro-reunificationists on both sides of the DMZ), but Andy may be on to something. His punchline:

The Gaesong Industrial Complex can function only as long as North Korean labor is not mobile.

Be sure to read the comments to Andy's post as well. There are some alternative theories.
