As we head into a long weekend here in Korea to celebrate Hangeul Day, we are doing a special in depth interview with author Dr. James Robinson.  Dr. Robinson has co authored the book, ‘Why Nations Fail.’ and in it he uses the two Koreas as a main example, to illustrate the point that manmade political and economic institutions are what determine global gaps in wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine.

Alex also asks him what he thinks about South Korea’s prospects today, and where they fit in with the growing rivalry between the US and China.
