Chinwi your opinion on this man?


What I can say at the moment is, this person is a much better gentleman than the previous  
man they imported from Singapore. The other thing is, there are allegations against a top group at CB. I hope the new Governor will handle them smartly.  

No one can bring the amount of money we need now. I cannot imagine how they balance the next budget. It all happened when these fools increased salaries by almost 100%. It created imbalance and triggered money printing and Tax chain. Now due to increased prices and taxes the Govt. servants say the relief they got by increased salary is going backwards and they are in more trouble.  
This is a basic principal we learn in economy classes.  

At the same time entire food production in the country is being squeezed by the actions of the rulers and also by  identified and unidentified environmental factors. This can create lot of troubles in years to come if they take no action.

p.s. Dr. Coomaraswamy is in JKH board. Probably he may quit with this new situation.


I totally agree with your comment

" It all happened when these fools increased salaries by almost 100%. It created imbalance and triggered money printing and Tax chain. "

All problems created after huge salary increase to government servants. You can feel how non government people bear this cost of living even if govt. servants say the relief they got by increased salary is going backwards and they are in more trouble.  

Now private sector people also demand high salaries. Also foreign investors  won't come if salaries are high because their main objective is earning profits.

re.crnsuranjith:

Yes those 3 people were trying this for many years irrespective of governing party.

I did some non-economy related study with one of them and I know they had long term vision and goal. I do not know how they could spend lot of money for these work for so many years ...may be from external sources.

Due to their financial strength and international connections they can sustain  during any government, influence top ranks and gradually spread the vision they believe.

@ stockback , this case is much serious than managing an airline .  
If anyone wanted to know what happened in SriLankan, 80% of  Loss in Srilankan was due to high fuel prices and low productive high fuel burning 4 engined A 340 air planes.
Previous people did some mismanagement but the present crooks are doing more serious unrecoverable damage to the future of our airline by rejecting A350s built for us and withdrawing highly profitable ground handling from the airline.

Even the highest graded governor would not be a panacea for the prevailing situation. He may be capable of streamlining the economic management mid to long term provided no trickery, pressure & influence.

News flash: Mahindaananda Aluthgamage just accused Governor Indrajit Coomaraswamy of conflict of interest as he serves as a director of the Galleon company of Raj Rajaratnam. Is there any truth in it?

The credibility of MP Mandaananda is doubtful, that is why I ask?
