ABSTRACT
This article explains that Pakistan is not only a foreign policy problem for the U.S., particularly, but also a potential investment agony for Americans if the tumult following Benazir Bhutto's assassination deteriorates into a decidedly anti-Western and anti-commercial rabble. President Pervez Musharraf's policies may not be doing much to promote political stability and democracy, but they have been pushing growth and investment. But ever since oppositions took to the streets in March 2007 the countrys' economic indicators are heading downward.
