The economy of the country is mainly dependent on agriculture, manufacturing, iron ore and rubber exports. During the war, the export on diamond and few more things were banned. The export of some other commodity could be done even during the war time due to a pact between Liberia’s warlords and foreign concessionaires. Looting in the Liberia has a bicameral legislature and a dual system of statutory law.
