The Segregated Economy of Kuwait

Interview with James Bowden
Guest Contributor for In Homeland Security

This podcast seeks to uncover the history behind Kuwait’s bifurcation of its economy between native Kuwaitis and foreign workers in Kuwait on a long term basis. It also argues that Kuwait may be headed for potential disaster in the economy once exploitation of its oil resources comes to a close. However, because of the bifurcation process, the economic hardship could be more catastrophic due to in-experience of native Kuwaitis and their readiness to take over service sector industries; for which there is no guarantee of foreign workers.
