Pakistan: The Economy of an Elitist State (2e)

Second Edition

Ishrat Husain

The main thrust of the book is that the respective roles of the state and the market have been reversed in the case of Pakistan, with the result that the bene?ts are reaped by the elite class only. This small minority continues to enjoy the unjust accumulation of wealth in the midst of widespread poverty and squalor. The author establishes that such a situation is socially and economically not sustainable.
