Hossein G. Askari, professor of international business and international affairs, was quoted in an article on WashingtonExaminer.com on June 8. The article, “The Islamic Davos and the Arab Spring,” discussed the consequences of the revolutions and protests of the “Arab Spring” and their full impact on the world. “The effort to bring about the required sea change in economic performance in the Middle East will be much more difficult than the political change we have been witnessing. While the right spark can overthrow dictators in a matter of days, the initiation of a sustained economic turnaround, depending on the circumstances, could take a number of years. It will require significant resources as well as a deep understanding of these economies,” said Askari.
