Thanks to Mamya, trevor, roy for yesterday.

"This is not provided in the right economy" = tariff.

"Ran off, having lifted nearly all pottery" = fled. (It IS 'pottery' and not 'potty'.)

Many thanks.

Hi PS.

Not sure whether there's some wordplay in the 'tariff' clue that I'm not seeing. However ...

One meaning of 'tariff' is 'a governement tax on imported goods'. Right-wing governments just don't like taxes. Therefore a tariff is unlikely to exist in a right-wing government's economy.

Hi Roy.

If 'thrift' = economy
and 'th' = 'This is not provided'
then 'rift' would equate somehow to 'in the right'?
