President Museveni on Real economy Vs Vulnerable economy

Monday 4th May 2020
President Yoweri Museveni

In the Book of Mathew: Chapter 7, verse 26-27, it talks about the unwise man that built his house on sand.  It says:  “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the floods came and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell ─ and great was its fall”.

Similarly, in Economics, we must identify the firm ground from the sandy ground.  The firm ground for economics is in answering the fundamental human needs which are: food, clothes, shelter, defence, the human resource development (education and health), infrastructure, medicine and spirituality. With these, the society is secure. It is these that support life, morality and enlightenment. With all or some of these, you have the basic economy that is firm.
