There ALWAYS is. TINA (There Is No Alternative) is one of the excuses they try to use on us.is there an alternative?
One alternative is using the limited reserves (ihtiyat) to buy basic products (food, fuel, drugs), and stimulate our economy, while countering corruption and getting reforms done. Basically do our homework, and getting some benefit, with hope to grow more in the future.
The IMF on the other hand will dictate to us exactly what to do, and how to use whatever monies are in the central bank, and definitely not for the people's benefit, but for the elites. That is its raison d'etre.
We cannot run away from doing our homework.
