The Economist

Pakistan



The Penguin Economist Special reports delve into the most pressing economic issues of the day: from national and global economies, to the impact of trade, industry and jobs. Written to be read on a long commute or in your lunch hour - be better informed in under an hour.

Pakistan is in a tricky situation. It is under constant scrutiny by the world media but is more often than not described in terms of its problems.

There are indeed difficulties - bordering the unsettled nations of Afghanistan and Iran puts it in a precarious position. A poor and badly educated population for the most part is not helping the country's growth.

There is hope.

The wealth of natural resources, a growing, urban population and a more democratic government all point to a positive future.

But with the NATO withdrawal from its troubled neighbours nearing, Pakistan's survival hangs in the balance.

Simon Long's special report includes the following sections:

Perilous Journey

Too close for comfort

State of vulnerability

Captain's innings

In the shadow of the mosque

Lights off

A taste of Hunny

Always with us

Dripping with blood

Going with the flow
