Ramadan 27, 14402019-06-01

Pakistan debt continues to climb and going to the IMF for another bailout package is not a good omen for the future.

The US economy has taken a tumble faster than anticipated. This was confirmed by the International Monetary Fund when it released figures on December 4 showing that China has surpassed the US as the world's largest economy. America had been the world's dominant economic power since 1872. No more.
