Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people....A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor, but he who hates unjust gain will prolong his days...When the wicked rise, people hide themselves, but when they perish, the righteous increase. (Proverbs 28:15, 16, 28)
Morality of leaders matters for inclusive economic leadership. When you are poor, the last thing you want is a evil ruler with moral bankruptcy from head to toe.
This is exactly the position many poor countries are in. Poor people with evil leaders. Let us keep praying.
