Abstract

The countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have gone through considerable changes in the last decade, spurred by high oil prices and ambitious diversification plans.1 The changes have affected literally all sectors of the economy. Large-scale immigration has provided the labor force while capital inflows and financial development have leveraged oil wealth to finance diversification. Regional integration plans are advancing although it is not clear yet what the prospects are for monetary union.
