Oil, oil prices, and oil wars bear a strong burden for the current situation of strife in the Middle East. The United Nations should regulate finance in the Middle East using a similar model to the United States' regulation of Wall Street. With prices and competition regulated by common business rules, and fair labor practices, including appropriate pay, the world begins to solve one of the most significant problems contributing to unrest in that region.
Yes , we should Regulate Finances in the Middle East.The development of regulatory institutions in the GCC has shown marked progress, as growth in the finance sector has brought with it increased awareness of the need to keep up and, indeed, be proactive. Saudi Arabia’s Capital Market Authority is one example of a new regulatory authority in the region, and Qatar is seeing the streamlining of market regulators; both are examples of the development of effective bodies.
This question is coated with an imperialistic sense of entitlement. Local resources within the region should view and review their finances and make their own choices. Obviously, there are questions on where resources and funds go, but those should be posed by the local governments and agencies. When the need arises, the US and other foreign parties could be consulted to enforce and regulate.
By regulating finances, what for? To curb terrorism? To stop ridiculously rich people getting richer? To distribute the wealth for fairly? I'm not sure it will make much difference, to be honest. Terrorist parties seem fairly self-sufficient, money pumped into the Middle East is pennies compared to the wealth that oil provides there, and there's no way of evenly re-distributing wealth without people crying out that they're not getting a fair deal. "Middle East" is too much of a generalisation to really give a fair answer here.
