Another interesting data point:

I’ve been brainstorming some business ideas for here in Myanmar. Unfortunately, according to the World Bank’s “Doing Business” rankings, out of 189 countries, Myanmar ranks last (#189) for ease of starting a new business (http://www.doingbusiness.org/rankings). For doing business in general, it’s at 177 out of 189.

Finally, another anecdote. As of late I’ve been trying to learn the intro to “Mexico” by James Taylor on Taiei’s acoustic guitar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMaByvEMN84). Hitting the b minor chord has been particularly tough.
