Economist: A country’s rapid emergence from an economic recession requires substantial new investment in that country’s economy. Since people’s confidence in the economic policies of their country is a precondition for any new investment, countries that put collective goals before individuals’ goals cannot emerge quickly from an economic recession.

Which one of the following, if assumed, enables the economist’s conclusion to be properly drawn?

(A) No new investment occurs in any country that does not emerge quickly from an economic recession.
(B) Recessions in countries that put collective goals before individuals’ goals tend not to affect the country’s people’s support for their government’s policies.
(C) If the people in a country that puts individuals’ goals first are willing to make new investments in their country’s economy, their country will emerge quickly from an economic recession.
(D) People in countries that put collective goals before individuals’ goals lack confidence in the economic policies of their countries.
(E) A country’s economic policies are the most significant factor determining whether that country’s economy will experience a recession.

This is an LSAT problem and you won't see anything such in GMAT.

To be very specific, this is a sufficient assumption question "enables the economist’s conclusion to be properly drawn". I am yet to see one such sufficient assumption question in Official Guide/other official sources in the last couple of years. The last one (and the only one till date) appeared in OG-12, but it was dropped in the subsequent OGs'.

Based on the premise that people's confidence in policies is a precondition for blah blah, the argument concludes that countries that put collective goals before individuals’ goals cannot emerge quickly from an economic recession.
As we can see there has to be some kind of link between people's confidence and goals
Only option D addresses the gap
