Bureau 39: Kim’s Cash Machine

YEAR: 2020 | LENGTH: 1 part (45 minutes)  |  SOURCE: 4CORNERS


North Korea is one of the most secretive nations on earth. Led by the unpredictable Kim Jong-un, the ‘hermit kingdom’ is largely sealed off from the rest of the world. Despite severe financial sanctions imposed by the United Nations, the nation has defied international pressure and developed a sophisticated and costly nuclear weapons program. While more than half of the population lives in poverty, Mr Kim and his cronies live a life of luxury, buying up big ticket items like state-of-the-art pleasure craft and top of the line Mercedes and Rolls Royce armoured cars. The question is, where is all that money coming from?

Curating wonderful science materials for humans. Documentaries, lectures, and movies. All trade-free.
