With the current turmoil in the Middle East and shifting political tides, it is difficult to predict the changes that will result from today's events. To discuss the current situation, the Mercatus Center and the George Mason University Economics Society brought together a panel of academics and development experts to discuss the political and economic change that the Middle East is experiencing.
Our diverse panel of experts included:
S. Ramachandran, former World Bank Economist and Country Specialist for Egypt
Christopher Coyne, Professor of Economics at George Mason University
Peshwaz Faizulla, Persian and Kurdish editor at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation
Jack Goldstone, Professor of Public Policy at George Mason University
