Faced with dramatically fluctuating oil prices and pressing demographic realities, Saudi Arabia is working to envision a future beyond reliance on energy markets. That, however, is easier said than done. In this episode of the Stratfor Podcast, we discuss Saudi Arabia’s ambitious Vision 2030 plan, the motivations for reform and the challenges ahead with Stratfor Vice President of Global Analysis Reva Goujon, Senior Global Analyst Matthew Bey and Middle East and North Africa Analyst Emily Hawthorne.
Then in part two of the podcast, Evan Rees and John Gennace sit down to highlight several books included on Stratfor’s 2018 summer reading list.
