One Reason Rama Chickens Out of a Debate With Vishnu

And deprives us of a historic crossfire between two of our Finance Ministers who've been in the job for roughly the same amount of time. I would have seriously considered moderating this landmark event but only if Rama insisted. What a shame!

But this setback shouldn't prevent us from getting our facts right. Job creation for instance has been more robust when Lutchmeenaraidoo was in the driver's seat.* Yep. The economy churned out 127,700 jobs between 1984 and 1990 compared to 72,600 during Sithanen's two-part tenure. That's 55,000 more jobs in case you're wondering.

*Data for 1983 excluded because I didn't find them.

I was thinking maybe he got tired of the monologues he's been treating us with.
