Another gem from Exploit the Worker:

Market reforms introduced in North Korea in recent years mean most people only get about half the food they need through the state and have to buy the rest themselves.

It's fascinating, even in a Stalinist country the press makes it sound like it's the market's fault for malnutrition and starvation.

Update: Johann Norberg found it too.

Update 2: Boy, this is really getting around quickly. Tom G Palmer has discovered the article.
