Indonesia's economic growth has been hampered for decades, first because of the dictatorship of former President Suharto and the massive debts that were accumulated during his regime, and, more recently, because of the country's excessive red tape and corruption that make it difficult to start a business. Transparency International ranks Indonesia among the most corrupt nations in the world. Economic growth is also hindered by the country's poor infrastructure and low level of labor productivity. You will probably agree that Indonesia's problems are interrelated.

- Explain whether or not you think the Indonesian economy grew despite or because of a totalitarian regime.
- Discuss what might explain India's relatively poor performance under a democratic political system.
