The Middle EastProduction, Distribution & Consumption

Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Iran are very different countries in terms of location, residents, and economic systems.

Israel’s Economy

Israel is located along Mediterranean coast and has a relatively small geographic area and almost no natural resources.

Israel was founded in 1948 as a homeland for the world’s Jews, and most of the citizens are Jewish.

Israel’s Economy cont.

Though they have many problems with their Arab neighbors, Israel has good relations with much of Western Europe and with the United States.

The Israelis have built an economy based on advanced technology that has allowed them to make up for much of what they lack in farmland and natural resources.

Israel’s Economy cont.

Israel has faced a double challenge in building a mixed market economy: national security and immigration.

Since its creation, Israel has been in conflict with its Arab neighbors and has faced high expenses to build and maintain its armed forces.

Economic aid, especially from the United States, helps with the financial burden.

The Israeli government plays an important role in economic planning. For example, the government has been heavily involved in agriculture to make sure Israel can feed its citizens.

Israel has the most diversified economy in SWA including mining & manufacturing equipment, high-tech equipment to export, cutting and polishing diamonds, and agriculture.

Israel’s Economy cont.

Since Israel is a popular tourist destination, a high percentage of workers are in service industries (hotels, restaurants, tours, etc.).

Even though Israel has a small amount of farmland, it grows most of its own food.

Israel’s GDP is approximately $243 billion per year.

Saudi Arabia’s Economy

Saudi Arabia is one of the largest countries in Southwest Asia, and it is located to the south of Israel on the Arabian Peninsula.

Saudi Arabia’s Economy cont.

When Saudi Arabia became a nation in 1932, its economy was almost entirely traditional and consisted of selling dates or trading goats, camels, and hand woven rugs.

Everything changed when oil was discovered in the mid-1930s! Oil brought tremendous wealth to the Saudi royal family and transformed the entire economy.

Saudi Arabia is mostly a command economytoday.

Saudi Arabia’s Economy cont.

The Saudi Arabian economy has been oil-based ever since, with the government controlling most of the industry.

The king of Saudi Arabia and his advisors make most of the decisions about how and where to use oil profits. With these oil profits the government can buy most of the goods they cannot produce themselves.

Income from oil accounts for 75% of the country’s budget.

Saudi Arabia’s Economy cont.

In the 1980’s, realizing that oil wouldn’t last forever, Saudi Arabia saw the need to diversify its economy.

The government is now encouraging private enterprise in areas such as power generation and natural gas exploration.

Saudi Arabia’s Economy cont.

As individual businesses grows, Saudi Arabia is moving to a mixed market economy, with 40% of its revenue coming from private businesses.

They have invested a lot of the nation’s wealth in new technologies that allow them to produce goods they would not be able to do otherwise in a desert climate.

Saudi Arabia’s GDP is $576 billion per year.

Iran’s Economy

Iran is located across the Persian Gulf from Saudi Arabia.

Iran has great oil wealth, like Saudi Arabia. However they have much more of a diverse economy based on other products and natural resources.

Iran’s command economy has not been very efficient in recent years. Even though there is oil wealth, many Iranians do not share in the wealth.

Iran’s GDP is $496 billion per year.

Turkey’s Economy cont.

When Turkey was established as a republic in 1923, its rulers believe that the government should control and build the economy. The government invested in the country’s infrastructure: dams, electrical grids, port facilities, railways, and roads.

Turkey also developed important steel and weapons industries.
