With regard to Saudi’s domestic oil climate, M.B.S has enacted Vision 2030; a direct attempt to manufacture a complete economic overhaul through ambitious reforms in taxation, the severance of subsidies, and spending. Saudi also plans on creating the world’s largest initial public offering (IPO)through the partial privatization of Saudi Aramco which would bring in an approximated $100 billion of non-oil revenues for Riyadh, however, this plan has been delayed multiple times already (Khan). Because of these reforms and future partial privatization, combined with investments in infrastructure, military, and education, M.B.S is hopeful that this will create an impenetrable division between Saudi Arabia and total oil dependence/Dutch Disease. One of the most intriguing aspects of Vision 2030 is the blue print for NEOM, a mega-city run on clean renewable energy that will connect Saudi Arabia to Jordan and Egypt (Ellyat).

And so, the social contract between the people and government is dominated and dictated by the rentier’ effect; this rentier social contract has a direct negative impact on the power of the people, however, they have silently agreed to its repercussions. With the oil royalties funding the fiscal system, the people of the country acquiesce their government representation for their emancipation from taxatio>GET ANSWER
