Ysabel State

Simple questions to Ernest K.

If Ysabel is economically developed, what's the use of adopting a system to improve things when the current one serves us well?

And which one of the two comes first, Politically readiness or economically readiness? Or do they go hand-in-hand?

In my view one has to come or be done first. And adopting a state/federal system is like setting a framework or foundation whereby sound economic development can be based.

Logging and minning are not the only source of income, as there are many other innovative ways to make money.

And one last question, when SI gain independence from G.Britain about thirty years ago, how economically developed was SI then, if that was the precondition for adopting statehood as you imply.
