The Trinidad and Tobago economy is spiralling downward; and while the government of the day attempts to arrest the situation they fail to fully grasp the real cause of our anemia.
At the core of our economic deficiency is not low energy prices. This is tantamount to an over weight person commenting that the cause of their obesity is high caloric food. No. The cause of your obesity is your indiscipline and lack of self restraint -as politically incorrect as it may sound. In other words behaviour and character flaws of the person or country in question must be identified not exogenous factors.
Trinidad and Tobago has a simple problem which is not being identified by politicians, bureaucrats and intellectuals who all feed at the TTTT the Trinidad & Tobago Treasury Trough in some form or fashion and have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo.
