Economic Mismanagement & Social Instability
The performance of any economy is the main factor that influences total social stability. At the level of individuals, as well as for enterprises & states, the relationship between competence and economic participation or output is determined by political, ethnic & administrative policies. When economic output falls while there is actual gain in experience then this will be translated into resentment & any form of protest against these policies & states. (as the case with many famous rebels, outlaws & rich terrorists)
Badly managed economies (or underdeveloped), as shown in Output Curve 2 below, are characterized by the following:
1. Low level of maximum output due to strong reliance on inexperienced work force.
2. Higher percentage of resentment, and consequently higher social instability.
3. Low over all productivity ( total area under the curve, it is short & shifted to the left).
- Output Curve 1 è production pattern in successfully managed economies.
- Output Curve 2 è production pattern in badly managed economies.
- The X-axis è Time of involvement of individuals & enterprises, in a career.
- The Y-axis è Relative output or income of individuals & enterprises.
- Competence & Knowledge Gain Curve è Normal learning development.
- Resentment è The dissatisfaction due to fall in income & opportunities.
The main features of bad management of an economy are:
1. Ethnic & personal favoritism. 2. weak sense of responsibility.
3. Appointment of incompetents. 4. Disregard to specialization.
5. Weak monitoring system. 6. Professional disorganization.
7. Ineffective justice institutions.
