    tbh anyone can get bhutto-ed in Pakistan atm. Let us hope he is not the one.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Nobody is safe, but Bhutto did something pretty dumb. I was at a relatives house and he was recounting the crucial moments of Bhutto and Zia as told to him by an advisor present at the time.

    Bhutto had been put under house arrest by Zia. Zia came to meet him and tell him that once the nation had calmed down, he would let Bhutto resume office (or something to that affect). However Bhutto at that moment (during his house arrest) decided to threaten Zia (that he would destroy him after release). That marked the end for Bhutto and his execution.

    11.5 % inflation at the end of September 2011. It's a big concern at the moment especially since people are unemployed and suffering due to floods.

    Big problem is that the rupee is constantly losing value because nobody wants to invest in Pak (war on terror).

    Run away inflation is a problem that feeds on itself. On the one hand there is initial jobs created by printing more money but it will certainly drive away foreign investment if they cannot forecast what their return on investment will be. (floods a major contributor on food price inflation)

    You get an initial boost in prices as more people are bidding for the same amount of goods which may give the impression to businessmen that new investment in productive industry is now viable, only problem is that when you take away the inflation (grab the tiger by the tail) it causes massive problems.

    As tough as it may be, getting inflation under control is important. With corruption being a problem, Government/Private partnerships to boost industry would be fraught with danger.

    Maths/Engineer, so I did a few courses in game theory, derivatives () and econometrics, but most of what I know is due to lodging in a share house with 1 Ass Prof and 2 PhDs in economics/political philosophy who work at the LSE for the past 8 months and I have asked them thousands of questions.

    yeah the economy is a major problem BUT an even bigger problem is leadership which is not even willing to pay attention to these problems.

    Wow, lucky you. Are you still at uni or do you work? My brother also did Maths at uni. Do they ever get tired of you asking thousands of questions?

    early estimates suggests crowd of 150000-200000.One of Imran's strength as a cricket captain was how he went on a roll once he gained momentum a trait that has stuck with Pakistani sides even when they are playing poorly. for the first time he has got momentum on his side now time to keep it rolling.
