James Rauch: The Three Arab Worlds

UCSD economist James Rauch breaks the Arab world down into its sub-Saharan African, fuel-endowed, and Mediterranean components and compares socioeconomic progress in each to its rest-of-the-world counterparts. His findings contradict the belief, popularized by the UN Arab Human Development Reports, in a monolithic Arab world that has failed to modernize. This program is made available to UCSD-TV by the Alternate Focus series.

James Rauch: The Three Arab Worlds
Premieres Monday, August 9 at 8:30pm
and re-airs throughout the month.
(This program will not be available on-line so tune in or set your DVRs!)
