The paper analyzes the drivers of economic growth in Israel, Qatar, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and analyzes these strategies according to a set of indicators which indicate the future trajectory of these countries' growth rates and the sources for this economic growth. The paper argues that disparities in income between these countries and future prospects for growth depend more on human capital development, protection of private property and individual rights and development of appropriate infrastructure than the amount of natural wealth they have developed. The paper concludes that these countries will continue to enjoy significant growth rates excluding Saudi Arabia, that will continue to struggle despite high demand and high prices for its primary extractive resources.
