Brian alerted us to the following:
British economic journalists David Blundy and Andrew Lycett observed the following about LIBYA:
"The young people are well dressed, well fed and well educated.
"Libyans now earn more per capita than the British.
"The disparity in annual incomes… is smaller than in most countries.
"Libya's wealth has been fairly spread throughout society.
"Every Libyan gets free, and often excellent, education, medical and health services.
"New colleges and hospitals are impressive by any international standard.
"All Libyans have a house or a flat, a car and most have televisions, video recorders and telephones.
"Compared with most citizens of the Third World countries, and with many in the First World, Libyans have it very good indeed."
Many thanks to 'C' for allerting us to:
