The author contends that from Mughal times right up to modern day Pakistan, Muslims belonging to the more modest segments of society have always been more enterprising than those hailing from the priviliged classes. The author cites modern day examples to show that small scale entrepreneurs have contributed more to Pakistan's economy than the privileged classes who walk the corridors of power, hold the reins of big business, or sponge off the land and its people as feudal landlords.
