come out of your bookish life, trade deficit has come down because there is no f.. trade in the country, it would have been lot easier to do the structural changes when economy was on the up like first three years of Noon Govt despite Bootwalas onslaught, when kitty is getting larger, things become easier not that you can push people to double their dole to govt when their earning are being halfed. Lay kay dikhaao ab tax, today was firs show of markets respose and this was without any political support, next will be with the backing of political support and you will see the real life economy Waisay where are those 15 billion EACH DAY which were going in Sharifs pockets each day, going in IK pocket now??
Bhutto’s socialist economics experiment of the 70s waylaid PK economy. Zia reversed this experiment for pol reasons and three original mafias was born in this country: GHQ, APTMA and Traders. When Zia perished in air, the Sharif family adopted (gode le lia) the last two under the tutelage of the first one. You veiled taunt/threat originates from and smacks of this historical truth!
However, that is not my issue at the moment. My specific question is: Is it bad to try to dismantle this trader mafia and bring them into the tax net??
