Maximising Disorientation

Only a crisis, real or perceived, produces real change.
Milton Friedman, 1982

Sithanen wanted to give 'a little shock to the system' by hiring Ali Mansoor as FS who hails from the shock-exploiting Bretton Wood Institutions. He then disoriented the people of Mauritius -- that includes our gullible PM -- with the fallacious Triple External Shock argument.

But his bluff was called more than two years ago and his plan of using shocks as a tool to thrust toxic bean-counting policies down our throats has backfired so that he is now living on borrowed political time. Having said this and given that it's Tuesday evening, let's go to the movies.
