  • Can experts predict black swans?

    23-01-2010

    Fat tails and black swans are terms authors use to focus on possibilities beyond our experience. Before the discovery of Australia, Europeans assumed there were no black swans. Nasim Taleb in his book, The Black Swan, contends that seeing a million white swans cannot lead the the knowledge of a black one. But Mohammed Baharoon writes, "The fact that a black swan, exists, here or somewhere else, or even may exist in a different time or space, does not make knowledge of white swans wrong." This first forum article asks the question whether experts can indeed offer sound predictions based on experience. What do you think?

  • Iran The Spectre of Sanctions

    27-06-2010

    After more than a year of preparatory diplomacy, the Obama administration led the UN Security Council (UNSC) into imposing a fourth round of sanctions against Iran over its refusal to give ground on its nuclear programme. The merchandise the UNSC produced, however, may be as detrimental to the rest of the Gulf neighborhood as it is to Iran. The UAE seems to be showing that it will, as it has in each of the preceding three rounds of sanctions, live up to its UN obligations. This early initiative may help deflect some of the pressure that will flow toward the UAE from the sanctions that the US and the EU will try to impose in excess of the UN sanctions.

    25-06-2016

    Oil prices have remarkably decreased since June 2014, as the price of a barrel of crude oil dropped below $ 50 at the beginning of January 2015, and continued to fall until it reached about $ 30/ barrel in last January. So, beside supply and demand, what are the other factors affecting the global oil market, and hence oil prices?

    15-06-2016

    During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims across the world are obligated to fast between dawn and sunset. While the physiological effects of fasting are well studied and accounted for, there are fewer analyses on the economic consequences of Ramadan. However, in an increasingly-global market place, and particularly for Dubai and Abu Dhabi as centres of international commerce, questions about the economic effects of Ramadan are becoming increasingly important to international markets and investors.

  • DUBAI – THE FASTEST CITY IN THE WORLD

    18-02-2017

    Speaking at the World Government Summit in Dubai this week, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum re-emphasised his ambition to make the emirate the most advanced city in the world.  Over the past two years, a series of bold, technological initiatives ranging from the UAE’s programme to land an unmanned vehicle on Mars to the world’s first Hyperloop system between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and now a 100-year programme – ‘Mars 2117’ – culminating in the settlement of a city on Mars, have continued to attract worldwide attention.  Moreover, none of these announcements has been blithely dismissed by international observers in the patronising manner that might have been anticipated, even as recently as a decade ago.

    20-04-2017

    Economic commentators who focus on developments in the GCC have recently highlighted unsubstantiated rumours of changes ahead in the fiscal development of the region.  According to this ‘rumour mill’, the UAE continues to be concerned to balance the country’s economy over the long-term as the country, like the rest of the Gulf, confronts the twin challenges of a still-stuttering global economy, particularly manifested in reduced demand from Asia, and persistently low oil prices that continue to make a direct impact on the public finances of GCC member-states.

    18-07-2017

      While my friend was explaining to me how the doctors in Germany diagnose the knee pain that he has suffered and the proposed treatments, a question comes spontaneously to my mind, Why our doctors cannot make such a diagnosis that was concluded by the doctors in Germany, specially it is an external diagnosis not a macroscopic or laboratory diagnosis.

  • Why Youth Policy?

    06-08-2017

    There is more than one reason for policy researchers to turn their eyes to youth. In the Middle East, the discourse on youth has transformed tremendously reaching a point where making policy for and with youth seemed necessary.  There has been great interest in the growing young population of the region during the past 3 decades in demographic research. The “Youth Bulge” was a “demographic bonus” that necessitated extensive socio-economic development.
