Liberia is Bleeding

By Alfred P. B. Kiadii Then come the nouveau riches donning gaudy costumes, acting like the new overlords in the wasteland.

Not convalescent with the fact that the leadership of the Homeland is a poisoned chalice meant to expose their bankruptcy to the stubborn people who have a bit of trust in them.

The Capitalist Crisis of Over Capacity and its Effects on the Liberian Economy

By Moses Uneh Yahmia The heralded prospect of Liberia rapidly expanding its economy through industrialization; thus, urbanizing and increasing the number of workers in the working class (employment) through the penetration of foreign capital is a dream not to be realized now or in the distant future.
