An editorial I wrote for The Express Tribune.

Imran Khan’s supporters are fond of pointing out the costs of the corruption of politicians belonging to other parties and that corruption no doubt needs to be addressed. But what use is Imran Khan’s supposed sincerity and honesty to the textile worker who will not be employed because the factory she works at is not getting export orders, or the farmer who cannot sell his stock at good prices because the multinational consumer goods company that was about to set up a production plant cancelled their investment plan? Malicious corruption has its costs. But so does incoherent, incompetent sincerity.

In the world of dollars and cents, intentions do not matter. Actions do. And Imran Khan’s actions demonstrate that he is far from ready to lead the Pakistani economy.
