The comment that I wanted to say is coming as too toxic to post. You can imagine what it is.

Has chosen the correct person. He should have been the Finance Minister as well.

"National Policies and Economic Affairs State Minister" as "acting Minister" of "National Policies and Economic Affairs"???
Stan Thursday, 04 October 2018 12:06 PM
He was the State Minister for National Policies and Economics Affairs, not the Minister.

Hey Harsha, you could win the Nobel Prize for Economics!! However, if gov't don't curtail and cut imports, SL not going to come out from present crisis for long time!! Hey running into more debt like issuing Sovereign Bonds, Panda and Samurai Bonds will be leaving a legacy of monumental amout of debt to next couple of generations!!!

Ah but the world economic situation was different - no Trump then but Obama. Like playing cricket on two different pitches - low scores and high scores can result. To equate all factors should be the same..

Hope your acting job pays well. It'll be a mini TV series. And then you'll go home.

So you thinkwe will get the Volkswagen car plant after all ?
Dhammika Thursday, 04 October 2018 05:28 PM
Kamal - Dr. Harsha is one of the very few politicians who has NO accusations on corruption . If I remember correctly it was RW who came out with the VW plant story .

We need people who can sense people's pulses. Not someone who blame to satisfy abstract formulas. So this is waste of money again.

Dear Dr Harsha or someone tell me how much was my share of the national dept back in 2015 and today after 4 years

He is one of the Jokers from UNP opposition who took a train ride from Panadura to Fort and commented on the railway short comings in 2014 highlighted in media and FB at that time. Now he has been the Minister for 3 years and railway has deteriorated further. Increased the fairs from Rs 95 to 125 between Dehiwala and Galle a 31% Increase. His calculation as Minister says 15%. Wonder from where He got the Degree in economics? How much he paid for it in USA?.
