This is an extremely interesting opinion piece by Fadi Abboud, the head of the Association of Lebanese Industrialists. Do not miss it if you read Arabic. The bulk of the article is an excerpt from a recent position paper of the Maronite Church on the economic situation of Lebanon. It is amazing (but too long to translate here)! The Church criticizes the (Hariri) post-war reconstruction policy, and the (Hariri) financial and borrowing policy that made the local banks richer and bankrupted the state, and accuses "statesmen" to have personally benefited from that! It also makes the point that migration (encouraged by Harirism) is neither irrevocable nor is it necessarily "free" as the country loses people who have benefited from education and hence from state investment. The Church also strongly criticizes the signature of Free Trade Agreements (promoted by Haririte governments) which destroy local economies. The paper also includes a series of recommendations.
By the way, the parenthesis are mine.
