Abstract : The study assesses the ability of North Korea to sustain high levels of military expenditures by using a building-block approach to estimate certain parts of the national accounts from physical production data. As a part of this effort, this report estimates how large a share of North Korean GNP is accounted for by non-military consumption. Since the North Korean economy had only limited external trade relationships during the 1970s, these estimates are made by inferring the value of food consumption from the value of agricultural output. Given the value of food consumption, it is then possible to determine the value of total non-military consumption.
