Pakistan is currently facing major economic and political crises. These are partly of its own making but mostly the result of and external shocks in terms of commodity prices that have exacerbated the nation's balance of payments. Pakistani military's unnecessary meddling in politics and resulting political instability have not helped either. The unprecedented floods in the country have further added to the severity of the challenges.

Pakistan's multidimensional crisis has spurred many in India and elsewhere to predict the Pakistani state's imminent collapse. Some disgruntled Pakistanis have also jumped on the doomsayers' bandwagon. What is often ignored in such oft-repeated dire predictions is Pakistan's size and its geopolitical importance in the world. Indian analyst Amit Bhandari has summarized it well in a recent Hindustan Times Op-ed: "Despite the severity of the challenges, Pakistan is unlikely to collapse — largely because of its geostrategic importance. A bailout by IMF or friendly countries will happen". Let me expand on Bhandari's comments:

1. The collapse of a large country like Pakistan will be very destabilizing for South Asia region and the world. Pakistan is the world's 5th most populous country. It has a large military armed with nuclear weapons.

2. Pakistan's location is geopolitically very important. It borders Afghanistan, China, India, Iran and the Indian Ocean. It has a coastline next to the sea lane that transport the bulk of the world's oil. It is connected to multiple strategically important regions of the world: Central Asia, Middle East, South Asia and West Asia.

3. China, the United States and Gulf Arabs have expressed a strong interest in maintaining Pakistan's stability. All of them are offering assistance to Pakistan. China will continue to support Pakistan as it tries to stabilize its financial situation, state media quoted President Xi Jinping as saying, according to Reuters. Prince Mohammad Bin Salman of Saudi Arabia has offered to increase loans and investments of over $10 billion to Pakistan, according to Bloomberg. American officials have said they support the IMF assistance to Pakistan, according to Dawn newspaper.

4. Pakistan has received pledges of $10 billion worth of loans and grants to rebuild after devastating floods last year, according to Bloomberg News. The amount pledged exceeds the $8 billion that Pakistan sought at the United Nations Donors Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.

Pakistanis are no strangers to forecasts of their country's collapse. There have been many such forecasts over the last 75 years, starting with its birth. Western and Indian forecasts of Pakistan's collapse are not new. Lord Mountbatten, the British Viceroy of India who oversaw the partition agreed with the assessment of Pakistan made by India's leaders when he described Pakistan as a "Nissen hut" or a "temporary tent" in a conversation with Jawarhar Lal Nehru.

Here's the exact quote from Mountbatten: "administratively it [wa]s the difference between putting up a permanent building, a nissen hut or a tent. As far as Pakistan is concerned we are putting up a tent. We can do no more." The Brits and the Hindu leadership of India both fully expected Pakistan to fold soon after partition.



A 1999 US Defense Department study titled "Asia 2025" forecast Pakistan's collapse by 2015. It further said that Pakistan would become part of a "South Asian Superstate" controlled by India as a "regional hegemon". Two of the study's contributors were "South Asia experts" of Indian origin. Much of the South Asia section of this study appears to be wishful thinking rather than serious analysis. Resilient Pakistan has defied this and many other similar forecasts of its demise since its birth.
Goldman Sachs analysts Kevin Daly and Tadas Gedminas project Pakistan's economy to grow to become the world's sixth largest by 2075. In a research paper titled "The Path to 2075", the authors forecast Pakistan's GDP to rise to $12.7 trillion with per capita income of $27,100. India’s GDP in 2075 is projected at $52.5 trillion and per capita GDP at $31,300. Bangladesh is projected to be a $6.3 trillion economy with per capita income of $31,000. By 2075, China will be the top global economy, followed by India 2nd, US 3rd, Indonesia 4th, Nigeria 5th and Pakistan 6th. The forecast is based primarily on changes in the size of working age populations over the next 50 years.
There's no question that Pakistan is in the midst of very serious political and economic crises. The nation is deeply divided politically. The country's economic performance is dismal. It is of paramount importance for Pakistanis to come together to deal honestly with their internal political and economic differences. Doing so will help Pakistan's large young population realize their full potential to join the ranks of the world's top ten economies.

Ignore the past. let's focus on present and more importantly, Future.

1. Define 'collapse'.
2. Do you consider Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea, Egypt, Somalia, Sudan, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Libya, Haiti as collapsing/collapsed?
3. Where does Pakistan rate among the countries above vis-à-vis 'geostrategic importance'?
4. Pakistan needs $20 to 25 billion minimum per year for foreseeable future (over and above export earnings plus remittances) for essentials like food and fuel. Where will this likely come from?

Perhaps not today... But Pakistan's trajectory is undeniable. Pakistan current trends is unsustainable. If not today, tomorrow it will meet it's fate. That is something history has shown. No nation is invincible and infallible.

This fact of reality is not just coming from a "disgruntled Pakistani". It's just facts.,..

Yeah, Pakistanis think they have some sort of divide protection or shield. They have none.

Only hard work, strict structural reforms and competent governance can fix this.

If you continue on the inept incompetent governance currently, it's only a matter of time till it happens.

Pakistanis should grow a spine and work towards the first immediately, or their future generations will likely weep under the foot of an oppressor even when they were given a nation to be free in but destroyed it themselves.

They laugh at Indian Muslims but tbh there's the possibility they could be the same in the future, and it would be an even bigger L because you had freedom but couldn't even manage your own fate.

If we go by the numbers like debt to GDP ratio we are nowhere near other countries that have defaulted but mindless destruction by the military installed Dar May very well lead to default. His policy of fixed rupee with no reserves has burnt through 50% of our reserves in just 3 months. Only people stupider than him are the generals behind him and PDM.
 
Pakistan is collapsing but its corrupt establishment is thriving. Its looking to engage USA to get free dollars to make them more powerful and more rich. Pakistan and its corrupt elite are mutually exclusive.

Many people get the perception that lines of expensive cars, big shopping malls is a sign of prosperity. With a sliver of population living this lifestyle, the rest of the country is reeling under bad economic mismanagement and misappropriation of resources.

Please define collapse for me? Our country does not have a billion dollars of its own. India, Malaysia, China, Singapore, Israel got their independence around same time as us. Look at each of the countries even in economic downturn post pandemic. Vietnam was completely destroyed by American war in 70s. Its one of the miracles of Asia now. Turkey lagged far behind many developing countries. Now it has pulled ahead many European economies.

How can you measure success by comparing with the failed or collapsing countries? If US or China are competing for influence in Pakistan, we will be wooed by the one which gives us the most 'bheek'. If there is competition for influence, a smart country and self respecting people look to extract maximum benefit that returns long term dividend. But our corrupt establishment compromises for its influence and a few properties here or there.

You need sustained industrialization, investment, exports so that Pakistan can become self sustaining and self respecting nation. In the last 10 months of regime change, where have you seen any focus on the development of the country? You just see establishment, gone mad in its power lust, obsessed to strangulate a genuine political movement.

the reserves drop in last three months also has to do largely with the payments made.
Overall you folks don't talk about the reserve fall in March of 2022 that was even worse.

Based on facts, without rhetoric, Pakistan is on verge of default. Even if IMF and other loans come through, it will just add more burden moving forward. It is a doomsday scenario however you slice it. With power cuts become so rampant, added to food crisis and fuel shortages, I don't see a glitter of hope.
 
I asked ChatGPT the following question: Will Pakistan Collapse?

ChatGPT's Answer: It is difficult to predict with certainty whether or not Pakistan will collapse in the future. The country has faced a number of challenges throughout its history, including political instability, economic difficulties, and security threats. However, Pakistan also has a number of strengths, including a large population, a strategic location, and a rich cultural heritage. The outcome of these competing factors will depend on a number of internal and external factors, and is difficult to predict.

Overall you folks don't talk about the reserve fall in March of 2022 that was even worse.
As a percentage this is much worse. Dar management of fixed rupee and administrative measures is historically bad with pain ongoing for years from it. Yes, in March when it was strongly suggested VONC would happen reserves started to drop. IK move (which I disagreed with) of fixing price of petrol seemed short sighted but imagine if we had elections and either PMLN or PTI had a fresh mandate now. Many difficult decisions could have been taken.

But instead we have basically revolt against an occupation force which is trying to hold down a population against their will by Usman Mirza’s in uniform who make videos of 75 yo women and threaten senators. That’s when they aren’t torturing to death patriotic journalist or trying to assassinate an ex PM. Laanat on those behind this and lakh laanat on those touts who defend such vile garbage.
