Pakistan: The Economy and Politics

The Pakistani Spectator on the relationship between politics and the economy. “Most of time in political history of Pakistan, military dictators have been in power. Being not answerable to people and being dependent on American's blessings, they never thought of well being of the masses. The temporary boom in economy witnessed in Ayub Khan's era was based on US support because Pakistan became an ally of US and joined pacts like SEATO and CENTO.”
