When growth is unsustainable

While the World Bank's revelation that Bangladesh is among the top five fastest growing economies in the world should be a cause for celebration, given the way that development has come about, I would argue that it is not.

Has this development benefitted ordinary people? No. We still have to face terrible traffic congestion every day. Housing cost and prices of essentials keep going up, as our living conditions get more and more difficult.

This shows that the fruits of this growth have mostly gone into the pockets of corrupt politicians and individuals.
