The second is that ease of doing business ranking that comes out around this time each year. Where Bangladesh is normally some small fraction above the bottom of the listing. The problem is bureaucracy often enough. People have to stand around, or in line, to gain a permit or permission to do something. This is the opposite of productivity as the people standing in line can’t be off somewhere doing something, making or producing something.
That is, we can increase productivity — as above make ourselves richer, enjoy pure economic growth — simply by abolishing large parts of the “Babu” Empire.
That is, if we reduce the number of permits, permissions, and applications for them required to do something then more will get done — we’ll have more of that pure and joyous economic growth. Plus, it will be fun turning the bureaucrats out of their offices and seeing if they themselves are capable of doing something productive.
