Is it possibile to socially engineer capitalism? This strange item from today's Post:

North Korea named Yang Bin, a Chinese-born exporter and property developer, to head its first major experiment in capitalism -- a walled-off region designed to draw foreign investment. Addressing a news conference in Mandarin Chinese, Yang said the 50-square-mile zone near the city of Sinuiju, North Korea's gateway to China, would be free of communist ideology and would reflect the government's willingness to open up to the world. He said the government will remove the zone's residents and replace them with North Koreans from elsewhere.
