ABSTRACT
The author comments on the economic situation in South Korea. He says that for all his naiveté toward the North, South Korean President Roh Moo-Hyun is to be credited for a different bold outreach, the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the U.S. He points out that dealing with protectionists in America will be as exasperating as trying to bargain with Dear Leader. He claims that financial services will get the best deal of any FTA the U.S. has made.
