Join CFA Society Netherlands for the bi-monthly Member Networking Drinks with a added bonus presentation on North Korean, by Korea expert Remco Breuker: North Korea - a look behind the scenes.
Meet other CFA Charterholders in a social atmosphere on Wednesday 27 September at our bi-monthly Member Networking Drinks.
The drinks will be preceded by a presentation on North Korea by Prof.Dr. Remco
Breuker, Hoogleraar Korea Studies, University of Leiden . We seem to have the wrong view on North Korea. According to Remco Breuker, if you look at North Korea as a capitalist company led by a number of powerful families, you will understand Kim Jong-un’s threats to use nuclear weapons: to stimulate the economy.
Learn more about Prof.Dr. Breuker's theory in this podcast.
Or watch Remco Breuker on Pauw from 13 April 2017.
