The Political and Economic Instability Cycle in Pakistan:: Moving in Circles with No Clear Direction

Since its beginning, Pakistan's political and economic environment has been defined by volatility. The political environment of the nation has alternated between dictatorship and democracy, with each regime making empty promises to bring about the nation's much-needed stability. In addition, the economy has been dependent on loans and aid from friendly nations and international financial organizations, resulting in a colossal national debt that keeps rising.

The blame game is another feature of Pakistani politics, with politicians more interested in pointing the finger at others than in finding answers to the nation's issues. Particularly in terms of economic independence, there is a glaring lack of a coherent vision. The once-important objective of nation-building appears to have been neglected. There is little genuine concern for the future of the country and its citizens since political leaders are more focused on advancing their own goals.

Pakistan has also failed to draw lessons from other catastrophes like the APS attack in Peshawar and the separation of Bangladesh. In delivering justice to victims and bringing powerful people to justice, the judiciary and other institutions have fallen short of their obligations. Powerful people can now operate above the law with impunity as a result of this culture of impunity. Pakistanis on average are suffering economically as a result of the nation's mounting debt. Regrettably, there hasn't been much improvement in ties with the neighbors, which has further isolated the country politically and economically. Journalists and media outlets have turned politicized and no longer offer objective, well-rounded interpretations of the news.

Tax avoidance is a big problem in Pakistan. Due to this, vital public services that are necessary for enhancing the quality of life for common Pakistanis are being underfunded. Pakistan appears to be going in circles as a result, with no discernible goal or direction.

In conclusion, Pakistan is comparable to a ship without a rudder that is cruising aimlessly through the ocean. The nation appears to be mired in a cycle of political and economic turmoil and is failing to learn from its past mistakes. Pakistan still has promise, nevertheless, if its leaders can unite and concentrate on a distinct future vision. In order to do this, it will be necessary to accept responsibility for former errors, foster an environment of accountability, and put the needs of the country and its citizens ahead of individual goals.


Pakistan faces numerous difficulties, but there is optimism for the future. The two most popular leaders, Imran Khan and Nawaz Sharif may resolve their disagreements and work together to develop a new vision for Pakistan's political stability and economic development. It will be necessary for both leaders to put aside their individual concerns and work together to better the lives of all Pakistanis. Working together, these two leaders could be able to provide Pakistan a better future.
