D

Once again, a clear indication that this is not an official question. Which that reffers not to a preceding noun, but to a full clause.

Will go with D.

The author has structured his passage in such a way that it appears that one things leads to another.
Hence conitnuing in the same tone.....

entry barriers ---> investment --> boost to economy ---> more jobs ----> greater salary -----and hence -----> better jobs with bigger payments ---> education

This is not a difficult question. The correct answer is D.
a. We do not have information as to whether bigger salaries are granted or not. If only a small percentage of the requests to increase salaries is satisfied, there would not be a substantial increase in taxes.
b. Foreigners can rarely be the source of the strong base of the economy. The percentage of foreigners who bring in income (and therefore tax) to the country must be very high, in order to influence the basis for a stable economic situation.
c. This suggests that only some people would be benefited. There is a small chance that a better life of a few would influence the basis for a stable economic situation.
d. Education can be the basis for a more stable economic situation. The possibility for bigger payments can lead to the desire to get more education in order to qualify for bigger payments. Educated nation has the potential for development, therefore influencing the economic situation.
e. 'Some increase' does not say much about bettering the economic situation, let alone the development of the strong basis.
