Thomas Sowell famously said “just a poetic discussion of weather is not meteorology, so an issuance of moral pronouncements or political creeds about the economy is not economics”. Thus I believe this platform would improve public understanding of the economics behind political creeds of Maldivian politician which I feel is one of the most important missing piece in the puzzle of Maldives to become a world renown 21st century democracy.
A very good initiative. I noticed that there aren't any posts since mid 2013. Hope the desk will become active again and that we will see many more articles and commentaries. Thanks.
Great initiative! Please change the style and colors on the site so the the reading can be a bit easy on the eyes! :)
Adnan's careful stepping through some of the issues is a very welcome contribution and it is hoped the call made for all parties to come together will be heeded. In a recent visit to southern atolls I was struck by the scale of investment and vessel power in the catching sector. All that power has to be paid for in production costs, which as Adnan points out have become uncompetitive, while processing companies have become lean and efficient. No doubt the Maldives product will always have a special place in the market but control of catching costs and more marketing are vital. Best wishes to all for 2014 ! Rgds Stephen
