Transcript of Autocracy by Group Beta
a system of government by one person with absolute power.
Autocracies may be stable, but to what price?
we as US citizens have much more rights than most people in those nations.
The Communist party strictly has control of most aspects of the Chinese people’s social life.
In North Korea many of the rulers have used political terror to crush their opposition.
Over 100,000 political prisoners in 2014
This terrifies people in social environments and restricts their behavior.
Cuba is a pure example of a dictatorship that takes control of long term over the citizens and their social life.
North Korea has one of the worst economic situations on the planet.
Huge amounts of military spending draw money and resources away from agricultural and industrial development.
It is a widely held belief North Korea does not have the resources to survive this century without foreign aid.
North Korea’s economic statistics don’t paint a much brighter picture. With a GDP of just $40 billion (lower than almost every US state )and an annual growth of just 1%, their only strength is that unemployment is at just 1% and falling.

Economic reforms by the Cuban Communist Party have only served to further encourage growth.
