  • In favor of recession

    Recession, contrary to common opinion, is a needed part of the economy cycle and more importantly for sustaining our civilization.Booms while great, do have downsides. No need for me to write on the upsides of a boom since they're well known and even fantasized! So to the upsides of a recession:1. Helps the 'humanity' aspect. During extended booms, its easy for individuals to became part of a rat race ie who has the biggest car, the exotic summer vacation etc etc. Recessions enable individuals to be grateful for what they took for granted. It helps reset the human clock on being content.2.

Despite Khan’s and Qadiri’s pleas, cajoling and even intimidation—the sermons and tirades are aired intermittently on electronic media into luring large swaths of people—the public, at large, has forsaken these self-proclaimed Messiahs.

Fear it because of past experience with a majoritarian government in the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies: when the then all-Congress Government had unjustifiably imposed the Internal Emergency of June 1975. And rode rough shod over the liberties of citizens. I cannot forget it nor can I condone it. My wife and I have lived through it and we know how a very large number of people suffered.
