Non-Collaborative Take Home Final Examination

As a guide for answering the questions, I would expect that you would need 4-5 typewritten double spaced pages to answer the first question and 2-3 pages to answer the second (not including tables or graphs).

1.  As the largest economy in the GCC, the fate of Saudi Arabia’s economy has a significant impact on the business situation in the region.   The decline of oil prices presents both challenges and opportunities for the nation, but, in addition, the country is suddenly forced to go through a leadership transition as a new king has begun to rule.  Such a time is an opportunity to view the current situation and decide what if any changes need to be made in its economic strategy going forward.  Suppose you were advising the new leadership in Saudi Arabia.  Write an essay describing the current economic situation in Saudi Arabia as you see it and provide suggestions for how to improve the economy going forward.  Focus your recommendations in two areas:  how to stabilize the economy in the short term and how to foster economic growth in the long run.  Be specific in your policy recommendations and be sure to provide an explanation for why you believe in these recommendations.  Your grade will depend on the quality of your analysis, not on the specific recommendations themselves.  I am looking to evaluate your own ability to generate ideas and defend them, not necessarily repeating what was said in class.

2.  You are a business analyst, and you have been asked to prepare a memo outlining the current economic situation in Bahrain and the economic outlook for the remainder of 2015.  Prepare a briefing memo on the current situation in Bahrain.  Your answer should have a table with the current inflation rate, unemployment rate, level of employment and nominal GDP, real GDP growth rate, interest rate, and any other variables you believe it is useful as part of your memo.  Defend your forecast for the economic outlook for the remainder of the year and provide potential issues that may affect your conclusions. Please include graphs for this question.
