Chapter Ten focuses on fitness – the capacity to cope with complex challenges and opportunities so as to enhance one’s own survival and other interests. Clemens discusses the fitness of North Korea and South Korea in-depth. By using the UN Human Development Index and Freedom House rankings, Clemens demonstrates how the North’s authoritarian ways has corrupted its fitness, whereas the South’s self-organization and global interdependence has allowed the country to thrive. Clemens ends the chapter by discusses ways in which North Korea could improve its fitness and human development.
