The Government of Mongolia has announced that it is to create a new Minister-Shaman to help confront the country’s ongoing economic crisis. “Key variables such as FDI inflows, currency volatility, and inflation are becoming harder and harder to predict” a Government spokesman told reporters. “As such, the Prime Minister has decided to create a Minister-Shaman to coordinate all economic forecasting and better help the Ministries to plan for the future.” The first Minister-Shaman is yet to be announced, but it is rumoured that a Government recruitment team is currently in Khuvsgul Aimag consulting potential candidates.

Despite years of communist rule, Shamanism remains strong in Mongolia, and there has been a resurgence of the practice in recent years. Through drum circles, spirit communion, and offerings, Shamans are believed to be able to possess powerful skills of insight and prediction and it is these skills that the Government hopes to leverage to improve the economic outlook in creating the position.
