How to get ahead

The newly-inducted government needs to make some critical decisions including privatizing or shuttering the bleeding public-sector entities and reducing the trade deficit. Several issues, like corruption and terrorism and other daunting challenges need to be sorted out as well. Our most abundant resource is our working-age population.

The top-most priority should be to develop and improve this massive reserve of human capital. We must also support the development of businesses that make and sell value-added finished goods instead of exporting raw material, like cotton and leather.
