A CATALYST AT WAR

To his credit Mian Nawaz Sharif opened up the economy during his first stint as prime minister, he has exceptional ability as an entrepreneur to do much more for the country. Many, including myself for a number of years, had vested very high hopes in him. Unfortunately instead of opposing Zardari tooth and nail for his blatant corruption, he seems to have made a “Faustian” bargain with him this time around.

Treason Trial

Given the multiple crises that the government is challenged with, on both domestic and external fronts and the desperate need to address them, Mian Nawaz Sharif’s decision to prosecute Musharraf for treason may reinforce the perception of a revenge motive.

The French Connection

The dramatic electoral changes in Europe will likely effect other countries of the world, more because of France than Greece, and for different reasons. The two “left of centre” French Presidential candidates who could not survive the first round both endorsed François Hollande, rabidly Conservative Marie Le Pen did not support either. The close vote, Hollande 51.9% and Sarkozy 48.1%, meant the Conservative vote still went to Sarkozy but was not enough. Notwithstanding the Conservative govt in UK surviving the Local Council elections, the swing back to Labour, down and out only a couple of years ago, was a huge setback for PM David Cameron, both politically and personally. An emerging force to be reckoned with in the future, the Liberal Democrats were dragged back to the past. The common factor, in France, Greece or in the UK, those on the “left of centre” had reason to be more than satisfied.

Feudalism Stunts Democracy

The historian Marc Bloch defined “feudal society” as a warrior aristocracy bound by vassalage. A lord was a noble who held land, the land was called a fief. Those granted possession by the lord were called vassals, expected to give service to their lord. Wealth was derived from agriculture organized not by market forces but by customary labor services owed by serfs to landowning nobles.
