North Korea Dabbling With Capitalism
In this Friday, Nov. 8, 2013 photo, a propaganda billboard, which reads "Let’s work toward opening a new phase for constructing a powerful economy with the mentality and spirit to conquer the universe," stands along the train tracks in Rajin, North Korea, inside the Rason Special Economic Zone. Last month, North Korea announced plans to create economic zones in every province. The North also recently laid out new laws to facilitate foreign tourism and investment. The laws provide investors with special incentives and guarantees, while giving local leaders greater autonomy to promote themselves and handle business decisions. (AP Photo/David Guttenfelder)
