Human Capital: Population Economics in the Middle East by Ismail Sirageldin
The countries of the Middle East and North Africa face booming populations and demographic changes that will have huge consequences in the socio-economic and political spheres. Human Capital offers a guide to the many and varied issues that policy-makers will face in addressing this challenge. The book, organized country by country or sub-region and supported by new statistical data and fresh analysis, covers issues of demography and development in the Middle East, the capital value of rising populations, the workings of the labor market, and the impact of migration and urbanization on the region.
