Asian Tiger or basket case?

The Pakistani economy cannot take off without fundamental socio-political changes

Shaukat Aziz, Pakistan’s Prime Minister-in-waiting wants to make Pakistan an Asian Tiger. The Acorn thinks it will remain a basket case unless there are profound changes for which institutional democracy is an important pre-requisite.

Being proved wrong will be a happy outcome.

    btw, we will have two economists leading South Asia. who wants to ponder the implications of that?
