Local Top economist hopes other policy blunders too, reversed

Top economist Dr. W.A. Wijewardena stresses the need for revisiting all public policies that have been made without due appraisal.

The former deputy governor of the Central Bank took to twitter welcoming the reversal of the chemical fertilizer ban.

“…though it’s welcome, it shows a grave deficiency in democratic economic policy governance; missing are consulting, flexibility, proper cost-benefit assessment, humility & humbleness…,” he noted.

Wijewardena said this is only one and there are many other blunders that have been committed with huge costs to society.

He hoped other policy blunders too, will be reversed.
