Let's Make a Deal

Here's a report about a recent deal made between North and South Korea which triggered my Psych 101 inspired interest in Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

The people of North Korea are motivated by their physical needs, for the basics of survival, food and shelter. Bottom course of Maslow's hierarchy of needs.

The people of South Korea are motivated by their relationship needs, for contact with their family and friends. Several courses higher on the pyramid.

Consider this as an invitation to an open thread discussion.
