Failed States

Somalia tops list of world’s most unstable nations.

“One of the biggest declines in this year’s index is registered by Bangladesh, now in 12th place. According to the report, a feuding, deadlocked government, the imposition of emergency rule last year, and the devastation wrought by a cyclone last November that left 1.5m people homeless combined to reverse much of the country’s recent economic progress.”

What do you know? The Philippines had these symptoms for decades.
