10. Putting ones country before the profits of the greedy, gee what a concept!
It doesnt take a rocket scientist or mathematician to figure this one out. Sell and export your countries resources at a low price and then buy and import the same resources at a much higher price. Oh, and dont forget to add the shipping charges, inflated fuel cost and a certain percentage that will be paid to the corrupt politicians who would allow this to happen, or if needed, to terrorist rebel death squads (also known as, freedom fighters) who will overthrow and assassinate any democratically elected honest person who stands in the way of the elites right to loot and plunder, (also known as free trade)...
