Every authoritarian regime has its own symbol of economic exploitations and monopoly either in an individual face or in an organizational mask.

Ethiopia, despite its success in persuading its western allies that it is combating poverty using its fast economic growth and democratization, remained to be one of the poorest and most closed countries where a group of few individuals control vast economic shares and absolute political power. Unlike many other authoritarian regimes, the most dominant ruling elite group in Ethiopia has a complex behavior in that it claims to represent a minority ethnic group from the northern part of the country, Tigray. In response it has gotten a relatively overwhelming legitimacy among the people of Tigray as compared to other regions; or at least many people, including myself, believe it receives better legitimacy only in that specific region.

Are we selling the nation out?

You won’t believe this….we hardly believe it ourselves… The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia has put the Ethiopian Shipping Lines (ESL) S.C. on sale (apparently for minority stake…). Is the government so short of money to run its business and service its loans that it has to look for such a short cut? Or is this a matter of “privatization” or “economic efficiency”? By the way, I read that privatization increase neither efficiency nor competition, but do lead to price increases for consumers, higher costs for government, corruption, embezzlement and the destruction of democracy.
