This assumes, of course, that the statistics published by national authorities and the World Bank reflect reality within a reasonable margin of error. Sri Lanka has long been regarded as having relatively good economic data, and there is no reason of which I am aware to think that economic growth has systematically been exaggerated.

"Rice in Sri Lanka is politics, and the 'National government' of Dudley Senanayake paid the price of a devastating electoral defeat in the general election for its decision in December 1966 to reduce the weekly ration. The succeeding UF Government retained the weekly ration of 2 lb. while providing an additional 2 lb. per week at a subsidized price. This was in fulfilment of its electoral promise to make good the cuts imposed by its predecessor." A.
