A brief test - do you have a soul?

A recently discovered G*oldman Sachs research paper on Korea:

"A united Korea - combining Asia’s fourth biggest economy with one of its poorest - could surpass that of Germany or Japan in economic might in the next 30-40 years, US investment bank Goldman Sachs said Tuesday".

Good new, yes?

And then this:

Many analysts warn the South’s rise to an economic powerhouse in the region could be undone by the burden of absorbing its neighbor, whose per capita income is about 5 percent the size.
But Goldman Sachs said it could be affordable by having the appropriate policies and by following the China/Hong Kong reunification model which allows two political and economic systems to co-exist, with limited inter-Korean migration.

If, like me, that leaves you holding back The Rage, I'm giving out A's.  If it leaves you anywhere on a continuum of rage to uneasiness, I'm awarding a pass grade, and may even e-mail out certificates declaring that the test taker possesses a soul.

Should you think, yup, great idea, you should be quite happy in the 9th circle of Hell, come The Reckoning.
