North Korea is selling gold for cash. They are in emergency. In the past year, North Korea exported more than 2 tons of gold to China, and got 1 billion dollars. North Korea is not only producing gold, but taking gold from the people to export gold. I doubt that this gold will be used for good. The gold will be used for nuclear development, war preparation, and idolization of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-un. It will be wasted on Kim Jong-un's luxury and propaganda. There is a saying that selling Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il statue can provide for all of North Korea.
