People. Planet. Prosperity. A job guarantee for Saudi Arabia?

With leadership from some of the world's leading monetary economists based at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, the newly launched Binzagr Institute for Sustainable Prosperity has, among other projects, been working on a pilot job guarantee program to address the unemployment problem in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

Below are some of the ideas being presented. View the full presentation here.

How ironic if Saudi Arabia will show the West how people, prosperity, and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. I wish them every success! This happens to be the best way to sustain a market economy and democratic society for the long term.
