Labor Economic Implications of a Reunified Korean Peninsula
The Korean Peninsula is split between two very distinct countries that share an eventful history. Since their division, the two countries’ economies have grown to be vastly different from each other. A number of factors have to be considered when talking about the reunification of the region. One of these comes is the difference in skills between the two labor forces. This analysis looks at possible labor economic implications of reunification and compares that to the Mariel boatlift Cuban emigration to the U.S. in 1980.
