He talked too much and said nothing. Gill not able to justify or give any account on the inflation's effect on the middle and lower middle class people, specially the salaried class.

He says that it is only the media which is reporting adversely, however, I don't think that the media is managing the local body elections.

No doubt, that to mend an economy, you have to start from the macro sphere and then come down to the micro level. But, this team of IK has failed repetitively to instigate a trickle down of this economic growth.

As compared to the inflation, this increase of just 15% in GDP per capita is not impressive at all. When the oil prices are increased by 250%, Sugar prices are up by 120%, Wheat prices are up by 70%, edible oil by 200% .... this menial increase of 15% GDP per capita, and that too only in 2021, means that the buying power of the commoner has in fact decreased.

The GDP and inflation has to go in tandem. Otherwise, increasing inflation by 50% and increasing the GDP per capita just by 10% means that the people are at the losing end. This does not mark any relief for the commoner. For him, things are still getting out of reach.

Point well taken, however...

These are complex issues that cannot be easily answered in a 2 minute sound bite, especially when asked repeatedly by agenda driven anchors who will interrupt you 10 times in those few minutes.

You have to one to one sitting with experts who can explain in simple terms, like Asad Umar, Muzammil Aslam or even Hammad Azher. However, busy bees on the streets don't have the time or interest in understanding the intricacies of this complex issue.

There is no simple and linear relationship between GDP, Inflation and Wage Growth.

In this age of the pandemic, inflation is being witnessed at an unprecedented level across the globe and the poor countries are affected disproportionately due to lack of resources and resilience in economy.

GDP on the other hand has it's own complexities as it could be consumption (Daronomic) or export based. Heavily dependent on agriculture, textile, manufacturing or technology as it will have different impact on different strata of society and proportion of population.

کپتان اگر کسی جلسے میں پٹواری حرامزادوں کو یہ کہہ دے، کہ
کم از کم یہ تو مان لو کہ خدا ایک ہے، تو
پٹواری حرامزادے اِس سے بھی انکاری ہو جائیں گے
،، اور ھنومان، کالی ماتا، کے فلسفے کو درست قرار دینا شروع کر دیں گے

Itna sannata kiun hai re baba (from opposition and media)
Not only here they are silent, I felt they were absolutely useless after Murree incident, instead of pressurizing government for prompt action they threw few fiery pointless tweets and then strange silence!! Opposition is only worried when they get in to trouble!
