I think the most frustrating thing about politics within Arab states is that you have many self-proclaimed progressive individuals who find fault with not only authoritarian nature of the state, but the economic policy.
However, some of these same people have some of the same fundamental views of how economic systems should work as the state has historically. You would think that after decades of oppressive rule people would scoff at policies that ultimately expand public sector growth and even shield existing inequality and corruption, but for some reason they believe that they have had a separate epiphany.
Those systems didn’t fail just because the state didn’t pump funds into them.
