Sri Lanka Protest

Last month’s mass demonstrations in Sri Lanka have sent warning signs to the rest of the world.

This as several middle-income and developing countries are dealing with similar problems of political dysfunction and the impact from external economic shocks.

Sri Lanka has a higher GDP than Peru, Egypt and South Africa, yet it’s devolved into problems. Its currency is collapsing, and the government can’t afford imports or to make its debt payments.
