GLOBAL FINANCE

JIM OWENS

SESSION FOUR 

Topic: Middle East and Africa               

Objective: Continuing our discussion of global economic situations and events; we turn toward the Middle East and Africa.  We will, to some degree, continue our discussion of China by looking at their economic activities in Africa while expanding that discussion to include the Middle East and its contentious political and economic events.  This material was submitted to PCBS in mid-May for logistical reasons and I will be updating a great deal of it during the Resident Session.
