Today, Saudi Arabia's economy is heavily dependent on oil. Wealth derived from oil has transformed the Saudi society from a state of poverty to one of lavish consumption, by both government and individuals. A high rate of annual population growth, coupled with meagre natural resources, raises growing concern about the country's future. Are there alternative sources of income to replace oil as the major source of government income in the future? This perfect storm raises the possibility of a potential government financial crisis, if things remain as they are. The crisis will be beyond the government's control and will lead to economic, political and social instability. In this important work, Aldukheil explains what needs to be done, what needs to be reformed, and even gives policy recommendations to prevent a crisis in Saudi Arabia.
