Devalued to death

I am hearing that the North Korean Finance Minister, who oversaw the chaotic currency devaluation last December, has been executed. The North Korean won was devalued from 100 to 1, wiping out people's savings and causing a scramble for US$ and renmimbi. The rice price rose fifteen-fold.
Perhaps we should reinstate hanging, purely for corrupt and/or incompetent MPs, or at least public flogging?
