The Routledge Handbook on the Middle East Economy

The Routledge Handbook on the Middle East Economy by Hassan Hakimian
English | July 9, 2021 | ISBN: 1138099775 | 404 pages | PDF | 16 MB

This Handbook captures the salient features of Middle Eastern economies and critically examines the public policy responses required to address the challenges and opportunities across the region. Bringing together wide-ranging perspectives from carefully selected and renowned subject specialists, the collection fills a gap in this relatively young and growing academic field.

Combining discussion of theory and empirical evidence, the book maps out the evolution of Middle East economics as a field within area studies and applied development economics. Presented in six thematic sections, the book enables the reader to gain a comprehensive understanding of the region’s main economic themes and issues:

• Growth and development in comparative perspectives

• Labour force and human development

• Natural resources, resource curse and trade

• Poverty, inequality and social policy

• Institutions and transition to democracy

• Corruption, conflict and refugees

Providing an overview of the principal economic problems, policies and performances relating to the countries in the Middle East and North Africa region, this collection will be a key resource for upper-level undergraduates, graduates and scholars with an interest in Middle East economics, applied development economics, development studies and area studies.
