Questioning Malta's economic model


Image result for malta construction
Malta's economy is doing well at macro-level. But is it peaking and moving towards unsustainability in view of over-reliance on construction? 

Apart from the sale of citizenship and tax-payer subsidized electricity provision, it seems that there are practically no new alternatives to sectors which are more fragile than others. 

Is Government's current economic policy modelled around electoral cycles or around sustainability? 

I think that it is imperative to ask such questions and to read between the lines when copying and pasting reports on Malta's economy.
