    Somaliland’s finance minister: We spent $1.5 million a day in the war

    Unbelievable! He admitted that SL spent $1-$2 million a day during the 6 month war in Sool. No wonder these people are in shock. They really left nothing in the tank, that was all they had.

    ANALYSIS How much of Jubaland's Agricultural GDP is generated by nomads vs farmers?

    Ran some rough numbers to find out how much of Jubaland's agricultural GDP is generated by nomads vs farmers. Many people who have been to the Shabelle regions, Hiraan Middle & Lower Shabelle, assume that settlement and production patterns there are similar to Jubaland. I think this is a...

    ANALYSIS 79% of Somalia's GDP in 2020 was foreign aid and remittances

    Foreign aid and remittances from the diaspora accounted for an unbelievable 79% of GDP in 2020. Somalia's internal economy is incredibly unproductive, with the trade deficit at a whopping 91% of GDP in 2020, due to the inability to export livestock as a result of the cancellation of the Hajj and...

    An interesting facts and figures report from the Somali Gov

    It is now about 2 years old, but it is a good overview of the Somali economy's basics. It gives you a sense of how deep a hole the country is really in.

    Imf's Assessment of the U.S's Economic Decline

    The low unemployment rate isn't an indication of an excellent healthy economy. Also, doesn't correlate with well-being either in this particular case.

    ANALYSIS Somalia's largest economic sector enters 4th year of decline

    It seems that sector is in full retreat. The peak for Bosaso was 12 years ago in 2006, and the peak for Berbera was 6 years ago in 2012. Land degradation is starting to catch up with Somalia's ability to raise export quality livestock it seems. The largest economic sector is in absolute decline.

    ANALYSIS Somalia is becoming worse than ever, no improvement in sight.

    I have always said that Somalia is in a Malthusian Trap. All increases in GDP are being swallowed by even faster population growth. GDP grew by an average of 2.9% from 2013-2017, but GDP per capita fell by 5.5 in the same...

    Somalia needs an Industrial Revolution

    though many bad things happened to those who industrialized, the good out weighed the bad as it boosted their economy tremendously and lead them on the path to economic success.

    Getting Somalia back on track.

    Iv'e been thinking of the best way to rebuild Somalia. And have come to the the conclusion that the country will never get back on its feet if it tries to emulate Western systems as the social culture of Somalia makes that impossible. Instead we should try to tailor a system that Somali's can...

    State owned company

    I've been wrestling with the idea of state owned comapanies take charge of the natural resourse of somalia. I think it will calm down the reluctant desire of the public shown towards foreign private companies lurking about. So my suggesting is, the federal goverment of somalia should build...
