APTOPIX North Korea Consumer Culture
In this Sunday Oct. 9, 2011 photo, North Korean customers line up to pay for their purchases at Pyongyang Department Store No. 1 in downtown Pyongyang, North Korea. A new culture of commerce is springing up, with China as its inspiration and source. The new consumerism is part of a campaign launched three years ago to build up the economy, and so the image of new leader Kim Jong Un.
