9780415491273: Economic Development in the Middle East, 2nd edition

By examining economic development in the Middle East in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, this textbook introduces undergraduate and postgraduate students to the most pressing and topical economic issues in the contemporary Middle East. With comprehensive coverage of the entire region, the author examines the economic prospects for the Gulf and charts the growth of economic power in the region.

Organised thematically, a full range of topics are discussed, including:

  • the role of banks and capital markets in the region’s development
  • the impact of demographic changes, such as the dramatic decline in birth rates and the implications for future employment
  • the development of economic advances in oil and gas production
  • the effects of the region’s economic development on international and inter-regional trade.

Through discussing the region’s problems of the past as well as the present and future challenges, this book provides students with a compact and manageable review of the state of economic development in the Middle East.

From the Back Cover:

Despite its oil resources, the Middle East is falling behind other regions of the developing world, notably the countries of South East Asia. Here, Rodney Wilson examines the economic indicators for the region. The book considers the economic consequences of rapid population growth, including the implications for education and employment; low savings levels, the absence of significant private capital inflows and foreign investment; fragmentation in the banking system and insignificant bond markets; basic infrastructure and excessive military expenditure; trade, falling oil prices and budget deficits. The author considers alternative economic directions for the region and looks particularly at the positive aspects of the Iranian experience. He stresses that both the goals of development and the methods used to promote development have to be reassessed for a region where an Islamic value system prevails. Ultimately, development solutions which respect Muslim values may have more chance of success than those simply imported from the West.

About the Author:

Rodney Wilson is Emeritus Professor at Durham University, UK and Visiting Professor at the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies. His research interests include Islamic finance and the political economy of development in the Middle East.
