At Least One Economy Appears To Be Thriving

Why, its North Korea!:

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North Korea's economy grew in 2008 after good weather boosted agricultural production, South Korea's central bank said Sunday.

The North's gross domestic product for last year was estimated at $24.7 billion, a 3.7 percent increase from 2007, Seoul's Bank of Korea said in a news release. The impoverished North's economy shrank 2.3 percent in 2007 and 1.1 percent in 2006.

I really don't have much comment. Just thought it was funny and ironical.
