Yeon-Mi Park, speaking at the recent Australian Libertarian Society Friedman Conference, explores the personal dimension of living in such a backwards country.
If you ever wanted an example of a relatively prosperous nation descending into a failed state due to socialist policies, look no further than Venezuela in 2016.
Many politicians and interest groups often claim the arrival of immigrants reduces the amount of jobs available for locals, they steal existing jobs. But is this true?
