Rigorous Speculation: The Collapse and Revival of the North Korean Economy

Marcus Noland (), Sherman Robinson () and Tao Wang

No WP99-1, Working Paper Series from Peterson Institute for International Economics

Abstract: In this paper we use cross-entropy estimation techniques to construct the underlying data base for a computable general equilibrium model (CGE) of the North Korean economy, starting from incomplete data ridden with gross measurement errors. The cross-entropy estimation approach is powerful and flexible, allowing us to make full use of what information we have in whatever form. CGE modeling forces internal consistency. The end product is a model that incorporates fragmentary information in a rigorous way and allows us to examine the implications of a number of alternative scenarios including rehabilitation of flood-affected lands, liberalization of the international trade regime, and military demobilization.
