Reforming the Gulf Rentier State: From Patronage to Cash Grants?
18/02/2021 1:00pm
LSE Middle East Centre
This Kuwait Programme event will be a discussion about Dr Steffen Hertog's recent research on cash grants in Kuwait. GCC countries share their national wealth with citizens through public employment and subsidies, policies that are inefficient, inequitable, economically distortive and fiscally unsustainable. This talk discusses how unconditional cash grants for adult nationals could replace government jobs and subsidies.
