The minister knows a lot more about the Guyana economy than I do. I don't see any reasons for me to doubt the numbers that are published.
Similarly, when Jagdeo was President, he knew more about how to govern it than you did. Yet you had no trouble questioning his methods.
Methods and numbers are two different things. Aren't they?
Not as they pertain to your objections. You would still object to Jagdeo's numbers, wouldn't you?
Numbers and methods are different in any circumstance. If Jagdeo told me that the sugar production for a given year was X amount and it seemed reasonable, I have no basis on which I can doubt him. I don't count every tonne of sugar produced. If he gave me a number that did not seem to fit in the ballpark of what the production numbers should be, then I would have a reason to doubt him. If he said that they produced 10 tonnes or 10 million tonnes of sugar in one year, then I would doubt him. I would do the same for Jordan.
In any case, you're just wasting my time with frivolities. I'm going in the yard and do something useful.
