Finding the Keys to National Prosperity

NEW YORK – In many of history’s most successful economic reforms, clever countries have learned from the policy successes of others, adapting them to local conditions. In the long history of economic development, eighteenth-century Britain learned from Holland; early nineteenth-century Prussia learned from Britain and France; mid-nineteenth-century Meiji Japan learned from Germany; post-World War II Europe learned from the United States; and Deng Xiaoping’s China learned from Japan.

This Funny Thing Called “Democracy Sustenance Bill” – Part 2

A few weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed a bill termed “Democracy Sustenance Bill.” The bill, we understand, was sponsored by some leaders of the main opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) and embraced by some higher ups of the ruling Unity Party UP). The bill, it is said, seeks to make funding of political parties the responsibility of Liberian tax payers. Differently stated, the proponents of this idea want money to be allocated in the National Budget for certain political parties, based on the percentage-points derived from the number of votes they obtain in a general election.

MPW and Liberia’s Complex Infrastructural Problems

Liberia is Africa’s oldest independent nation, history tells us so. This position occupied by us is the pride of our and our prestigious boast in international forums. When it comes to development in Africa, we always prefer to remain silent- reason being that we know our backwardness. If we must proffer a reason for being under-developed, our presentation becomes most logical. “We cannot be compared with South Africa. The whites built it before the blacks took over. We cannot be compared with Ivory Coast. The French built it before independence.” The list goes on and on.
