The wide disparities in the economies of the Arab world are not only the result of diverse geography.  They reflect the outcomes of different policies.  Economist Paul Rivlin explores the Arab debate over growth, rent, and the struggle of interest groups.  Special attention is devoted to the stabilization and structural adjustment policies of Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, and Syria, and the controversial role of the IMF and World Bank.
