Economic devastation is at once the cause and the consequence of partial or total state failure. But, given the type of regime which is likely to seize power under such conditions, it is doubtful that the rulers will defer to the logic of economic growth at the cost of diminishing their own power. The resultant political dilemma is the most challenging obstacle to the rebuilding of devastated economies in the Middle East."--Jacket." ;
