Non-Financial Determinants and economic fluctuations – evidence from Yemen

What is it about?

This paper aims to examine, by way of an analytical research review, the reasons for the fluctuations in the economic growth of the country of Yemen during the period from 2000 to 2014. The authors are trying to generate the answers to the following questions: Has tourism, oil price, politically instability improved? What is the impact of tourism, oil price, and political instability on economic growth before and after turbulence time? We have found that a very low number of papers have written about the topic. Yemen, as a developing country, has been under the influence of an turbulent time. The term “turbulence time” refers to the series of independent uprisings that occurred in 2010 across the Arab world. There is a lack of understanding concerning the economic growth status in the existing literature during this period.

Why is it important?

This paper provides an additional reference about the economic status of Yemen.
