    Here’s how much you need to save each month to become a millionaire in 20 years

    If you start saving and investing early on, becoming a millionaire might not be as hard as you think. If you're putting away $415 a month starting in your 20s, $651 a month starting in your 30s or $1,300 starting in your 40s, and getting a 6 percent return on your investment, you're on the right track to hit that milestone by 67. If you're starting from scratch with zero savings, you need to save $2,200 a month to become a millionaire by March 2037.

    Pyongyang gas price surge: Bad news for Kim Jong Un?

    While world attention has focused on Kim Jong Un's recent missile tests, a monthlong surge in gasoline prices in Pyongyang is showing no signs of letting up — a puzzling problem that if allowed to drag on could be very bad news for the North Korean economy. There's no obvious sign of less traffic on the streets, at least in Pyongyang, which is more affluent and developed than other North Korean cities. The North's by now pervasive market economy, which is tolerated by the ruling regime in exchange for its own cut of the profits, has made fuel and the ability to transport goods and people so essential that demand for gasoline is not so sensitive to price.
