Economic crisis for leverage

Few months ago, before and during the elections, a party leader was talking about the improvements in our economy, money was flooding and supposedly foreign businesses were starting to invest in our market, suddenly, when we reached the formation of our new government, the same party leader started telling us that our economy is very fragile, we’re about to be bankrupt and the formation of the new government is the solution, but of course, it’s the solution if his party gets the majority, otherwise our economy will be destroyed and citizens will become homeless…

This is not an economy lecture, and it doesn’t require an economist to know that markets flourish and grow when they project safety and trust for investors, and usually it is the government’s job, along side the political parties and public figures to promote a safe market.

What is happening now, and the reason why suddenly our market is slowing down, even more than it previously was, is because that party leader is promoting danger and government bankruptcy, knowing very well that it would lead to a slower market, affecting every business sector in the country in order to put pressure on the Lebanese Forces and other parties to give up their right of representation in ministries to save the economy and if they don’t, he’ll simply promote the idea that these parties are destroying our market…

This is the Machiavellian trick that’s being used today by this politician to maximize his share in government at the expense of the Lebanese Forces and the people who voted for them, and this my friends is how they create an economic crisis and use it as leverage for their political gain…
