    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.

    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.

    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...

    Somali rice farming project started in 1968

    Filipino seeds were well suited to our climates as opposed to Chinese seeds The two shabelle regions are blessed , they alone can feed the entire somali population who reside in the Horn of africa and there would still be enough produce left for exports. We have no right to starve like...
