Default Re: Worldwise: Gulf Risks (Habiba Hamid & Bernard Haykel)

Excellent discussion.

It is difficult to imagine how Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States can evolve into democracies when the "citizens" pay no taxes, when indeed they are paid to obey and keep their mouths shut. As long as oil flows abundantly I am afraid despotism (theocracy) is the only government possible in SA.
