""If war can be reduced to a competition over money--and control over the land, people, and the resources that produce it--then it should be possible to pay in advance to prevent it." Author Shepherd Iverson uses this underlying premise to provide an alternative to every book written about the North Korean nuclear threat and growing East Asia militarism. Far less permeable to economic sanctions than Iran has been, North Korea requires a different sort of economic approach to peace. Taking a cultural as well as a geoeconomic approach, Stop North Korea: A Radical New Approach to Solving the North Korea Standoff proposes that reunification is the best, possibly only, way to denuclearize North Korea, end its government's oppressive regime and create a fruitful, sustainable peace. The book further proposes that the way to achieve reunification is, essentially, to buy it while there is still a chance to prevent war and repair the damage already done. It is business-as-peace-crafting in a way that has never been imagined before. It all begins with this basic scenario: "Imagine that you control a multi-billion dollar capital fund and North Korea is a large underperforming corporation. You see it is undervalued and want to take it over, but it is controlled by an old-fashioned board of directors--the Kim family and a small number of ultra-elites--lwho will not negotiate a deal. In this regressive situation it is logical to offer shareholders--the larger number of political and military elites, government managers and bureaucrats, and the general population--a higher price for their shares to convince them to overrule their board of directors.""-- Provided by publisher.
"This radical new approach to dealing with North Korea offers a refreshing perspective on an intransigent and deadly situation. Imagine you control a multi-billion dollar capital fund, and North Korea is an underperforming corporation. You see it is undervalued and want to take it over, but it is controlled by an old-fashioned board of directors--the Kim family and a small number of ultra elites--who will not negotiate a deal. In this regressive situation it is logical to offer its shareholders--the political and military elites, government managers and bureaucrats, and the general population--a higher price for their shares to convince them to overrule their board of directors. Stop North Korea! A Radical New Approach to the North Korea Standoff applies this basic scenario to a situation that has become dire, and for which a strong positive solution is crucial. This book shows how investment rather than constraint--the carrot rather than the stick--will not only deter the North Korea threat, but enhance the global community in ways perhaps unimagined in the past"-- Provided by publisher.
