Analysis of War on Terror Intensification Years in Pakistan (2007-2009)

Current collapse of Pakistan’s economic growth rates challenge the economic prosperity achieved during 2003-2006 period. In Pakistan’s case, it was rather clear. With intensification of WOT post 2006, Pakistan is currently witnessing yet more challenging economic circumstances. Though, the exogenous factors which relate to current economic situation are generally associated with rise in oil prices, energy crises, global financial crises and commodity price hike, there is need also to include factors like WOT into the paradigm.
