NS3340 Middle East in the International Economy

This course explores timely international and regional economic development issues. We will examine both international and regional economic interactions and possibilities, including regional trade agreements, negative and positive international agreements (sanctions, foreign aid, the WTO, etc.) and shared international resources such as water. We will tackle the problem of late development, the effects of oil, labor migration, and tax regimes on the economies and business-government relations, privatization moves, and current prospects for employment and poverty-alleviation.
