About the book:
“ Saudi Arabia: Moving Towards a Privatized Economy” is a follow-up to the author´s first two books. It examines the next phase of economic development in the Kingdom, and the move towards privatization of its industrial base and financial institutions. It covers the new wave of current and planned investments which will bring Saudi Arabia fully into the 21st Century and give it economic power to be reckoned with. The book also refers to the challenge of developing the human resource assets of the nation if the economic choices being made today are to be fruitful in the future. “Saudi Arabia: Moving Towards a Privatized Economy” will serve as an invaluable source for American decision makers and policy analysts who seek information on Saudi Arabia and its increasingly complex and open society.
