The Arab economy witnessed in the last three decades some developments as expressed by GDP per capita as well as by the human development index. However, such developments are not enough. It's varied, not comprehensive, and not as hoped. It's varied not only between individual states, but also within sectors of economy as well as within segments of the society including women and children. This conclusion is valid to the Arab economy in general as well as to the Arab financial markets and institutions. Accordingly, this book aims to delve into the theme of the financial sector including financial markets and institutions within the context of the Arab economy.
