ABSTRACT
The article explores possible reasons for North Korea's agreement to begin the nuclear disarmament process, its economy identified as the most likely factor. United Nations sanctions were imposed in 2006 after North Korea said it detonated a nuclear device, and evidence suggests its already feeble economy was hard hit.
