Reviews and Testimonials

Knowledge-Based Economic Policy Development in the Arab World is unique in addressing the topics of knowledge over a relatively large number of Arab countries and to a relatively large number of sub-knowledge related topics. The book is timely because of the fundamental knowledge and communication-based forces driving the globalization of the world's economy. While these forces have lifted more people from poverty than anytime in history, they also place social and economic pressures on those countries that are slow to adapt to these knowledge-based forces.

– Terry L. Roe, Director of the Center for International Food and Agricultural Policy, University of Minnesota, USA
