Once all the rich people to become poor, then everyone will be poor, she says. Castillo has proposed limiting some imports, which would make it more difficult for limit to buy the materials she needs from China. She says for him, or would make it easier for small businesses like hers to thrive. Men of man Portable Campion's again, Lyman says she hopes voters will think carefully and pick the lesser of the two evils. National poll out this weekend showed cast IJO barely ahead of Fujimori. It also revealed that many Peruvian voters are planning to submit ballots with no candidates selected at all. For the world. I'm Jorge Valencia in Lima, Peru. For Syria, one of the most diplomatically isolated countries on Earth, a major international recognition this week, the executive Board of the World Health Organization granted the Syrian government a seat at the table. The decision shocked many Syrians living inside and out of the country. Say President Bashar al Assad's government does not deserve this sort of legitimacy. The world Sharon Jafari reports. Health workers in the rebel held city of Idlib in northern Syria held a quiet protest outside their hospital on Monday, burying their blue and green hospital gowns and facemasks. They held placards in Arabic and English with one clear message. Giving Syria top position at the W. H O is unacceptable. I have participated in the demonstrations against the election of the Syrian regime. The Executive Board of W. H o this week. Dr. Salam Abdullah is the head of Idlib's Health directorate. He says there is a long list of crimes committed by the Syrian government that should prevent it from holding any position in any international body. How can we trust W. H O, which is one of its executive? Board is the murder. Who's And some of these crimes he says, have been documented by the W H O itself. The W H O Executive board is made up of 34 members. They hold three year terms and set the agenda for the organization. In response to my request for comment. Wh or representative sent an email that said in part member states decide who sits on the board and 22 countries voted for Syria. I thought it was a joke like it's an onion article. Then when I confirmed the news, you know, I I felt really sad doctor saw herself is a Syrian American critical care specialist. He lives in Chicago but heads an NGO that supports medical workers in 11 different countries, including Syria, You know, I worked in hospitals that were built underground in Aleppo, and it lived myself because it was bombed multiple times. I've seen the destruction of house. Let us by barrel bombs. I've worked with doctors who built a hospital in a cave. Yes, a hospital in a cave to protected from air strikes all that, he says at the hands of the same government, now sitting on the board of the W H O. This recognition is a far cry from where Syria was just a few years ago. Governments around the world started to cut ties with the Assad government after it unleashed a violent crackdown against its own people. Iran, Russia and China all helped Assad stay in power. But overall, his government has been isolated. Now Syrians likes to help a Ghazi worried that the world is starting to normalize relations with Assad. Ghazi is a researcher with the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy. That would be a slap on the face for the Syrian victims who have lost their loved one and have lost more than that in throughout the last 10 years. Ghazi says Syrian state media has been reporting that Cyprus, Greece and Hungary are planning to reopen embassies in Damascus, The United Arab Emirates reopened its embassy two years ago. There is speculation that Saudi Arabia could be next. The U. S. Has not museum diplomatic ties, but the Trump administration did send a delegation to Syria to meet with officials about American hostages held there. Mohammed, a Syrian American lawyer based in Chicago, says reintegrating the Syrian government would have serious consequences. It sort of puts it in a position where It's here to stay, you know, And so what That means is that for Syrian survivors of human rights abuses perpetrated by the Syrian regime, it means that accountability is that much further away. Hama other says there are no signs that Assad is going anywhere. But accountability should come before normalization. Some former Syrian officials are on trial in Germany, and that's a good first step, she says. But her mother wants to see more developing some sort of truth Finding commission will be really important. Another thing is is reparations and again. That's difficult while the regime is still in power, But I think For so many Syrians who have lost properties who have lost family members who have lost the ability of to work as a result of their injuries from war crimes or torture. Reparations will be into really important step for moving forward. Yesterday, Representatives of Syria's government took the floor at the W. H o Executive board meeting for the first time. Syrian Our Republic You have the floor police Children here he is speaking through an interpreter. We wish to underscore the need for all member states to respect human rights in accordance with the U. N Charter and in accordance with international law.

Things look totally normal little weird well enough for people who have been brought ducks in that kind of a conservative environment. We think the world has gone completely mad itself. This is the answer but may be we. The conservative ones are not the criteria. The question is really in the western world. The believe came up that the basis dems our democracies okay so we have five thousand years of recorded human history and we have two hundred years of democracy of those two hundred years not even seventy years are full democracies because as you know in the nineteenth century not everybody could vote i till the nineteen thirties. America women couldn't vote. And i'm from switzerland until the mid nineteen ninety s. We had some areas where the women couldn't vote so the idea of democracy that's never been implemented in the sense. Everybody should vote work. The idea was of democracy increase. Was that some people could vote that you had the lead. They would be voting. This we have in china. The communist park eastender practically organized. It's a one party system but the million show.

"It does. We cannot like for example improve the situation of women or the situation of small farmers without to have like to look at the whole system economic awesome. There is a structural problems economically they rooted and there in the seventies or eighties or nineties. They have to solve this problems. uh-huh or to to to see the solution from this point of view not like just Creation how you can can do job creation. There's no investment vestment if there is no state can invest because the states are have no money anymore to invest the possibility to have a like job creation and for example. This is what I can say to the. To the policymakers if they want to hear some might push back on that notion because about uh they'll points to apparently very successful and well run countries that don't exhibit some of the dynamics. You're saying it sounds to to me. There's part of you. That's an activist. As part of an academic. You'll probably if I were to gauge about eighty academic twenty percent activists. I don't know if you own taught but are you speaking in economist. For example when you talk about the the necessity of democracy as a foundational tablecloth for everything else that must come com. Or Are you speaking. More as an idealist who buys into certain doctrine. I have a question to you. Actually do you talk about sustainable development and and long-term growth or you talking about growth for next ten years if you talking about the growth for the next ten years maybe you can have Brisa regime which which like ensured for a growth of three to six percent per year but I can I can guarantee that in ten years will well have explosion in form of protests like look Iraq and now Iraq is not a not a poor country they have a lot of oil oil a lot of money coming in the state budget. Why people are on the street because they have no clean water people dying because of the? We're we're talking about sustainable development about long term growth about peace and stability in the in the long tim you have to have a long term strategy and not like very shortsighted one.

"And fourteen of the world's most conflict affected regions given that context. Women are of course a key target poop for the support. Spot provides they back initiatives that provide women startups in businesses with training coaching and access to finance the promotes job creation. The lend more about spark and the opportunities creating right now at spark dot NGO NGO and now back to the episode this notion of the global north has an imaginary. Am I right in saying based on what you said that they are the the economies that count within what we would term global northern affluent interests. I guess within that context and in this I'm met might identify as so in terms of the economic agency. I am I right and sort of seeing it like that a personally. I have a problematic with this terms because they are like the global North Global South and so on and there's a global our we call it like first word second word third word or like developing advanced economies and so on and everyone one knows that for example China was for longtime like from the Global South and parts of the developing countries and now China is actually challenging U s and the U so these are not really correctly used. Let's say would the time now that the word is very diversified that you cannot like like what the Gulf States together with a couple of African countries which have like no access to Internet access to water and so on or even compare them with European countries. There will be. This is true. This is this is why they tried to use this. Emerging economies as like Middle Way to just not classify them with advanced economies but not with a developing countries. But you know all this this classification based on such of indicators which are very a normative and don't take on the condition that quality of you say okay Kim macro-economic growth rate. Yes is nice very good access to turn it. But what about the quality you. You've just take the numbers. This is not enough to decide. Decide which standards have this country of development for examining this is brilliant segue to talking about development agendas because is a lot of countries who are in the position to basically influence global development. Agendas use these terms to set priorities. and to sometimes impose priorities when you try to apply it disciplined analytical approach. What do you consider the most important metrics to inform inform policy or to inform wise economic growth very simply? It's not about how much but how that you do do this. For example. That's how much students enrolled in the schools but which kind of quality education they'd get. Not How much you spend on on in infrastructure but how kind of infrastructure you produce from these for example there is a Gini Index. which like trying to measure the Disparity the income in each countries which is important but even this one need to be reviewed again just to give the better indicator indicator on how the with an income in one country or worldwide distributed. Why I'm really? This is difficult for me to just see the northlake Arizona's society or economy and the South because globally there is increasing tendency to adopt more more and more new liberal agendas than your liberal does have like the same effect everywhere to different degrees leg. Disappearing of the middle class for example is happening in Germany and happening in Syria and happening in Egypt and happening in Tunisia. But the effect for example in Germany they said the poorer people became more but the standards of the poor in Germany is different from the standards of the poor in Tunisia or in Syria. And I think there is a lot of of common interest between for example more farmers who are working in Spain with the farmers who are working in Morocco then in this American farmers and and and and and Spanish farmers then Dan Interest between the Spanish farmers and the spinners punish punish capitalists for examined so the word is can be seen in different way like according to the social socioeconomic background. If you are farmer you have something to share you're with other firms in the global north and You are in capitalist. You have a lot of things to share with our globe with With a global north for example this is also with make people in the Middle East and in other developing cancers may more frustrated because they're they're elite their governments have common interest with with a big corporates with the with the U. Corpus and with the US the US corporates more than with their own people. You know let's assume I'm I'm a well meaning well intentioned policymaker let's assume they they exist and I say that tongue in cheek I do know they exist. And let's identify an issue which I know is close to your heart and also one that I know a lot of policy. under-sea makers are looking to solve for for a number of reasons seems to be a correlation between empowering women and qualitative improvements and in society especially empowering women entrepreneurs because depending where you are some studies. Show that they actually we have higher rates of success the steward their income better. You know. They run companies better so show me how applying a A well-intentioned blankets assumption about improving the lot of say women entrepreneurs in Jordan mm-hmm or in. Tunis is actually counterproductive. And maybe to what degree is there. PABST init- benefit even with these oversimplifications being made to what extent very difficult to explain because on the one hand and women has to be given more role in the economy and they are also very good actually or successful in what they we are doing for example in the macroeconomic micro-credits institution. There there is some statistics which say credit to the women more more appreciated than to men because they could re bait the lawns better than the main. The numbers says like this but There is another to tation. They said because the women are more hesitated or like just get very fast afraid. So they don't want to have a problem. They are not strong strong enough to to to face problems or to have conflict. This is why they they this on one hand is the really bankable on the other. The hand they don't seem as confident and assertive as Mitt. Somehow like this this is one issue the other depending on which study of course that you. You're really yeah exactly. The other thing is for example when we talk about the increase of the employment female employment is a very very positive sign or indicator at again. Let like quantity and decatur but if you go there and you see under which conditions these women are working like You will see an Tunisia for example the most important liberal force Working in the textile sector are women. Why it does because they are very conscious of gender? No because the women because as women engineer I'll get less money than than Wages than than men so I just WanNa make sure I'm following before you carry on so on paper. You could celebrate the fact that women are being taken up into sort of employment fueling industrialization but not looking at is does because well frankly it's cheaper than using men this through. This is one thing addition to this there is for example no distant jobs opportunities for women because goes for examining no protection for Regmi or do you know. There's a lot of lacking conditions to have good decent work for for Tunisia for for women for example another example women in Bangladesh. There is some studies which Say That through the involvement of the women in Bangladesh in that sector and and the work. That's an empowered them. But there's another study said the money they get directly goes to the men and the men decide how they spend the money at the end of the day you. You didn't really empowered though the the women. But they use the women to empower the whole like financially the whole family. And if you will also look at where the women are like employed Loyd you will see for example is seventy percent of the ugly catcher sector Liberal forces in Africa too the the minor region according to a study. Study our our women and everyone's nor that like the income of ugly catcher is very low comparing with other sectors and if you look at for example banking sector you will see that. Women haven't high positions within the management usually they are like on the operative achieve level not in management level. If you look at the decision making process like whether economic sphere or in political sphere you you will see that women are not really a decision maker and this is also one more thing has to be considered when we celebrate the the numbers of gender equality according to how many women gets involved in the labor market and last point women if they get the involved in the labor market they cannot take rid of their social role as like were mother. As as I like taking care of the family and all these things isn't additional work for here so as long as you dont release her electric to fascinate for for hair opportunity to concentrate on one job that two jobs it is hard to talk about gender equality and the end of the a day. Social norms have more influence on women life everywhere in the world than the economic job or the position. At boy I wonder how the complex notion of Arab economies interacts with the desire for certain interest to see women unempowered and and I say this carefully the reason I say certain interests because I think there's sometimes the assumption that everyone has the same interests the norms that I would constitute the definition of an empowered economically independent of you know women in say Europe match that same definition of someone in say Saudi Arabia. It's very challenging for women to be self employed and the Arab countries like if they Women haven't lack social support like acceptance that she is an entrepreneur For example the does difficult to to run a business will not get get enough attention. This is one thing it is also has to do also with social social class of this woman there. Is the woman coming from rich families. They have different conditions than poor women for for example different limitations on what they're allowed to do in can do learn differently limitation and. Yeah societally yes I. Of course. And also for example women in the urban centers have different limitation than the rural women for example hello our working with agriculture so you cannot like generalized talking in general about things but in general if there is something bad bad happening the women will be influenced worse than men for example. This is one thing the second thing it is if they want to to reach the same level of success the man had or did they have to make more efforts to get the same level. Do you know what I municipal. They are like all the time struggling to get to the point where the brother or the father has already done with with less effort efforts so in wrapping up. Let's talk about what you would most like. The people who write the chicks in this sort of development community not chasing economic empowerment within Arab economies. What would you most like them to know? Especially those not limited to those who are looking to empower women through jobs entrepreneurship. What would you? What would you most like them to know? And first of all you cannot develop the economy without democratic political system. So that's shots fired right there. Yes yes you cannot like have a highly developed economy without to allow people just to express their opinion to participate in the exiting the economic policies to be dissipate and in planning running your city in everything this is the first one. The second one is a transparency and anti corruption measures up talking very very small corruption briberies but also the great corruption in terms of how you for example distribute the public tenders. Oh about subcontractors who are well connected to the gym to get the big fish and what Kinda orderly smart smart people can get and so on. This is the second thing that the third thing is this They have to have to deal with the problems differently. It does. We cannot like for example improve the situation of women or the situation of small farmers without to have like to look at the whole system economic.

"The comic groceries with this is why everyone was surprised actually. This country is from macroeconomic point of view. Doing really well and why why people are Not Happy with this because this growth economic growth is not equally distributed to everyone only elite have profit from all these and the rest of the population where suffering and became even poorer with a time. So this is make make nerve lucien the practice. There's one country we haven't brought up in this conversation. which at least as far as my pedestrian perception is concerned was this unexpected spoke in in the development of Arab identity or Arab economic prosperity is Libya their discovery of resources that potentially that'd be put them in position to to jostle with the Gulf states in a way that no one saw coming? I always wondered about the tension in between these imaginary around Arab nece and how they interact with Africa. What can you tell me about about that dynamic and maybe the role of Libya or maybe in my perception is not is not entirely world praised for that question I because I didn't continue? Maybe the how the time I'm lying when I was a talk. I started with a fifties with the fifties was was really the banner business very important agility as I told you that there's a lot of factors led led to counter Movement against this not very officially but in officially and this this is why for example you talked about Beyond Qaddafi has very specific policy followed. Somehow some social component went in his policy on at some point when he was like very angry with the other Arab leaders said okay. I am an African country. And he he tried to go back to the second identity in his understanding which is the African St Just really became more connected with a African neighbours. What was the economic consequences of that decision and I'm fascinated understand how it colors? How things look and operate operates between the Arab states in Africa? Today I have to say that the Arab countries are not they are not like very very happy with each other if you see for example that that there is problems between Jerry and Morocco Morocco because of the of the Sub Sahara Sahara this is why for example the trade between this she countries which are like neighboring countries. There's no trade Geria- Tunisia and Morocco. After this big project to involve all cancers in one single economic integration project. These attempts didn't Success in the eighties appears something which is like on subregional level seven which is like sub-regional integration attempts which is like the Gulf states. They create the Gulf Cooperation Council as degration in project and the North Africa. They created the mcgarry union. And so on but even so. This mcgettigan doesn't work because of the political. Become problematic again but back to your question from an economic point of your working on that developing countries. I would say all These this development countries share one interest whether are African or Arab or Asian. They have to cooperate. The South South cooperation should be strengthened to be able to face the challenge of them the economy of the north. And this is why started started all countries just to pray together like there's also in Africa. Lot of Integration initiatives that. There's an African Union. But before it was like commissar of course Sadak in the south and so on and they have a combined Saddik have the African character. This this is why they involved in the North African countries which they have a second it's the Arab countries so Egypt is also part of it Tunisia's just part of it and so on and from this point of view everyone was somehow conscious about the reality that we prayed together. As flopping country we have KAFFA via chance to face the globalization it say or the global capitalism. Let's say coming to us on so from this point of view. I think it is a very the good thing to cooperate together for African countries. We're taking a quick break to tell you a little more about spock. The presenting sponsor of the series spark doc is a Dutch. NGO which focuses on the empowerment of vulnerable groups and fourteen of the world's most conflict affected regions given that context.

"Podcast series. He's which was taped at the fringes of spock. Seventh Annual Ignite Conference in Amsterdam is an independent African take Rhonda production and the opinions expressed by me your host and those those are my guest and not necessarily reflect the opinions of the presenting sponsor. Spock so let's get straight into it. My name is Sam aside. I am a researcher economic in economics with a focus on that rep countries and political economy the journal with a focus also again gain on Syria. Welcome to the African tick roundup. Salaam thank you. I'm excited because this is the first time we've had an academic with the specialty on on the program and one from the reasons not one with a lens looking from the outside in or with an assumed expertise. There's a certain lived expertise here as well given you exposure to academics around the world. Who are interested in this in your area? What is some of the most common misconceptions exceptions they make about Arab economies? What constitutes them? What drives them? What incentivizes the growth thinking or the lack of view about these areas very much very much connected to the oxidant oriented Listrik this course and also also with the colonial history of this on the one hand on the other hand in terms of economy? Usually everyone talking about the Arab countries countries or Arab region as one region and get the impression. Okay there's more Jonas area but it is not they are very different. Countries have different went political and economic systems. They follow different economic policies. Not all these countries have oil and they are rich resources saw saw this is another thing might be mistake. Let's say Of course I'm talking about engine knowledge but the communist they know about there is so we share this problem because too many people Africa as a country. It sounds like a lot of people. The Arab region is one big place. That's true they share a lot of common things like the language The history somehow some countries they have similar economic structure. John but they are really very different. You have a very rich countries like Qatar and very poor countries like Yemen or Somalia. You have Countries dependent on agriculture like Morocco and shipped and you have a country dependent on oil industry and so on so it is very the event so used a very fancy word that I haven't quite heard before term. What was that terminology? The first thing you mentioned and what does it mean yes orientalists. Actually truly. It's a term which has been used from different into twelve or oriented lists in Europe and we're side has criticized this. Is this kind of looking at the Orient from the accident. Point of view. He criticized this kind of shock. Chirac assists an Arabic orientalist trying to analyze this region and to study this region from from the European point of view and not from the point point of view of the of the region itself. It's a form of uttering I think somehow like this so this is true for a lot of people that when they think of Arab economies they immediately think of the Middle East you name a number of African countries Mali Morocco as opposed to Egypt nausea and others come to mind as part of the the broader Arab economy. And I wonder what framework you use for. Making sense of the space from an economic comic standpoint perhaps to elicit degree perhaps in the social sciences standpoint. How do you compartmentalize or create files for everything? Before four. I talk about the economic point of view. I want just to mention that Arabic as that identity for these countries. Is it like a political concept which appears after an independent dependent or from the European colony. That was like Pan Arab Arab geology or by Arab and they try to find like regional nationality nalty for all these countries and that was the Arab as the word but from economic point of view you have in these like this term or this region which is Arabic region have very small countries like Yemen. And you have a big conscious Assyria from the from Ah Space for the area saw geographic from geographic point of view. Exactly the second thing is you have countries which follow ooh socialist policies like in Syria Algeria. Tunisia and there is another one of follow. Like the the nationalist later conservative liberal policies and this is for example the Gulf States Jordan. Somehow and I'm talking talking now about the period of time directly after the independent but the ninety s all these countries even the socialist countries started to open up their economy Utah different factors and all of them went to direction not only liberalism neoliberalism. And from that's point the effects of these policies became very similar everywhere. And this is what prepare for the Arab spring because of view a notice that the reasons for the Arab spring everywhere like in Egypt and Tunisia and so on everyone calls for social justice. Everyone caused for job and not every job. Decent jobs for more security social security more rights more more equality in life. It just occurred to me that Arab mess might be in this context far more important than say Middle Eastern Nissen Africanness. Whatever whatever that means right so I wonder how that factors into into this conversation? This Arab identity which appears in the in the fifties which it is also a kind of ideology which is sometimes combined with with socialism but in some countries with nationalism lead to appreciate different regional economic projects like in the fifties for example the The Arab League has been created and they they had lack of the concept of regional economic integration leg they you trust to build the first step lack free trade zone for future steps it should be check union economic union and so on and this serves this kind of ideology which is like Arab unity. We have to stick together. We have to fight together. We have to cooperate together just to to confront or to just to protect ourself against the old colonial powers but also against all challenges unfortunately doesn't work very well for different reasons. We can talk about the reasons. Why doesn't this works look so well? What seems obvious to me is the tension that's created when certain states I don't know strike oil and others don't and so a- as opposed pragmatic realities of capitalism start to maybe drive a wedge in this imagined unity around Arab identity the first attempt to have European Economic Integration and also appeared the fifties and now they have like European Union? Dan and the Arab countries didn't manage to do this. There is a little different reasons. One of them. They have potential to do it. Berkley actually because of this reason what you talk about. Like some countries have resources and others have human resources others lack have agriculture resources sources and so on the access to ports on this also. This is a very important point transportation or just access to European OPEAN markets. But the problem is that time while this identity appears some of the country's in especially the oil countries the Gulf states they get a little bit discovered of sharing their oil according to this the density because at that time a slogan has appeared. which is the Arab oil for all Arabs? Which means that this? This oil is not only the right of this shakes who are in the Gulf states but all for everyone and I think this is one reason why they hesitate to to cooperate more to deepen the cooperation between this one thing. The second thing is that time they developed differently. Bentley for example the development strategies of the socialist like oriented countries like Syria this is completely different from countries countries. Like Jordan they want to have self sufficient for example they are very skeptical towards international corporates Ameri accounts for example and so on why the goal for St Aubin their markets open their economy for investment investors like the US and so on so it was like political this buried. Let's say an opinion. And maybe this what makes this corporation and possible. I did my pitch by the way on them trade relations between among the Arab countries. And I try to understand why the free trade area doesn't work in these Arab Kansas and I figured out that if you open the market you will give more freedom for the market. Somehow at the cost of the the government was controlling all these things they might be an erosion of sovereign political power as things currently stand should things things should a free trade area exists. It does not wrong about it but the problem That this elite which like the political elite try to block this or just to put obstacles on the way to free. Trade became the capitalist in these countries. Like the social oriented country like Syria created and the ninety s or over the time since the seventy s a kind of political political idiot which has very strong economic interest and they have even economic resources. They they have the control thrown on the distribution of of the wealth in this country in their own favour at the cost of the collective interests and this elite prophets. It's from the market protection for themselves. So they produce everything they have. There is no other competition competitors in the local Oakland markets saw and this is why opening the market at that point. It wasn't very welcome from the. Let's say the ones who were posing the local market not only in Syria the same the same Shaimaa or the same model you will find in Egypt. For example That elite around Mubarak and his friends and relatives. They are that elite Internee Johnson so it is not only a matter matter of economic logic which like decide to support this project or not but the interest and unfortunately the interest of the fuel of these people. Let's fast forward because you're talking about what did and didn't happen in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s say I wonder what Arab economies look doc like had oil not been discovered for instance reflect on what that imagined reality would have looked like and maybe contrasted with what things look like today. Actually the Arab oil even if it is only under Gulf states somehow have been circulated in the whole region through different sprint channels one of this due to this banner Arabism Theology they have been for example a lot of Arab investment projects projects which has been invested in Sudan for example or countries like like Tunisia unsown. This the circulated the let's say the revenues of Gulf oil within the region. The Second China is that these Gulf states they are rich in resources but are not rich of labor force so they had to import liberal forces from other countries Countries like Egypt export a lot of liberal. I got in from Jordan as well from Syria and so on so remittances of these liberal forces also again went back to their countries the third thing we have to look at the political events. It's the let's say What's happening now that time? We had the Israeli Arab conflict and so on and the front countries where Jordan Syria and Egypt saw the Gulf states try to support these countries by giving them stater support directly and this is the third channel where the how the oil revenues circulated in the economy in the whole in the whole region. That's before the ninety after the ninety six and is a new era the economy but also in different Also from different point of view. I don't know if I answered your question. You're actually actually on your way to answering that question so I wonder if you can even imagine a world where that oil hadn't come into play. Yeah this is a good question because everyone one thing that the oil is the way to development for example the way for advancing economists on but look at Germany Germany. Germany has no oil that is leading economy in the whole world. This is a very bad very bad. Let's say idea of how to develop our country. I think from economic point of view can create a disease which is disease because if you have a very strong and very rich sector Ktar like the oil and your kids get money very easily from this sector. Other sectors will be underdeveloped or being glittered and then these. These countries became very much dependent on one sector which is the oil and this became like more of us in the ninety s when the F. came and to try to get through communication to the states to diversify their economy diversify their exports as wise they are bending of one product product. They present their self worldwide through oil on is that blind spots currently pervasive or is the progress to rectifying that thinking. If you look at the rhetoric of for example the government of the states you will see or you hear the Economic Minister of Economy will saying uh we aim at diversifying our economy our export on. They are conscious about it but they they don't really do. ooh Real or literally concrete steps to this and for one very simple reason why they do this because they earn enough money from this oil sector and there is no care about collective interest we talk about the state that the majority of the population are not locals not nationals so we were talking about minority will who which has a lot of money and a lot of wealth and the rest are only labor from India from Asia from Africa from other countries and they are somehow sleeves and one more thing I want to mention. It does not only about the resources because resources alone is not enough to develop about how you we use the resources I second you distribute these resources in the economy How profits from the whole resources? Again I will I. You mentioned the Arab spring because at that time Egypt and Tunisia had really managed to have a good growth rates..

You had no medical background. No understanding of these things. Absolutely nothing. And you just I it just going through the phases. Go into the progress today, I know more than ever wanted to know. I can imagine. So with what you thought were allergies. Got you a trip to the doctors you into the hospital. You got your cardiologists in continue with your story. Yep. Now, I'm up to the summer of two thousand fifteen where I just started going downhill I collapsed. My later shocked me four times and saved my life. I got a call from capitol cardiology centre needed to come in right away that it was in full cardiac arrest and. Dr Santo ruin we replace it later that time went for lots of testing. And then Dr Salam said was time we needed a family meeting. So my wife and son and daughter came, and I still remember that afternoon in July. I'm telling me that hey, you need to go for a heart transplant evaluation. I remember saying really. Yeah. I'm thinking that the, hey, we need to have a family meeting is just pins and needles and knock no clue this was going. Yeah. And obviously he knew he knew he was going, and it was a heart transplant. And then you make the mistake that I think a lot of people do when they get some sort of prognosis, you turn to the internet, and you just got scared out of your mind. Oh, yeah. Stuff on heart transplant surgery and different things that I didn't need to know. Right. Should never done it. So you you leave Albany in word heart transplant surgeries happen. What's the closest hospital here, we chose Westchester medical center? And we up it's a great partnership with capital cardiology. I mean, they got. I mean the one year so apple rates in the high these ninety seven ninety eight percent, okay. In westchester. The doctors are fantastic. How long does this procedure happen? How long does it take place? How soon can you get back to everyday life? Well, at that point it was in the hospital. I mean, that's thirty four days. After transplant. I see people go back to work six months, eight months later, depending on the type of job, they do, okay and the environment through. Gotcha. And this is where the organ donation came into play because you needed a transplant you needed somebody else's organ. Yes. Tell us that story. As far as I went in the hospital thirtieth two thousand fifteen to wait for an Oregon at that time. I got my first heartcall on December the fifteenth at six thirty in the morning, which wound up harvest bad that was the longest in my life. And I didn't get another call from there for another nine months after that. But I waited until the day after Christmas I crashed again, they wound up on life support at that point in time in critical care unit. I lived on life support for the next three months until I crashed again of February twenty fifth and I woke up on a heart lung bypass machine in the ventilator in that time was advised. I need to nail that. I left ventricle assist device to survive a bridge to transplant. Okay. That device. Also allowed me to get out of the hospital. Let me see the twentieth. And at that time, I told my mile a day my Blake within a couple of weeks, but by mid July update, the ten miles a damn stationary bike that allowed me to fly to Florida able to walk my daughter down the aisle. This was your goal. Your goal will be well enough to be in her wedding. Yes. Then they made it easy. I mean, the doctors gave you letters and airlines helped out delta helped out TSA health out, you just notify them all the time they met yet. The gates them. They made it an easy journey down back. Right. Because what for those of us that are new it looks like a man that's carrying like a purse or a satchel or immerses, you know, that the kids call it these days, but inside of that is actually the machine that's keeping you alive. Exactly. I had the heart meet to which could bring up I just got asked to be the heart may patient ambassador by the app corporation. So that's a new to the resume coming up this week here. So that's interesting. Yep. That's an eight pound pound bag. Battery pack, and it's a little device that goes into your left ventricle hooks into your a Orta and change the batteries every twelve to fifteen hours plugged directly in the wallet nighttime. You get a fifteen foot court, and that's your life. You can do a lot with it just got to protect it. Can't get it wet, and you don't wanna know infections and wind up in the hospitals. So the whole time that you're walking around with this in this situation before the transplant what you waiting for is the phone call to say, hey, David, we have a heart and you need to be at the hospital in this amount of times. You can't really go very far away. If you get the call now, and you're always, you know, an a and go mode. You're always wait and go you always have a bag packed. They always have your extra batteries and controllers with you. And you can't be any farther than a four hour window to get that hospital. Okay. So the day that you got the phone call that we have a heart for you. You need to come in. We're doing your surgery. What day was that? It was August nineteenth met day there. I was texting Christina Highland. P house making a hot chili sauce. Hot pickles to bring to my doctor's office on Monday. The twenty second in the last text from her relate one twenty five one thirty in the afternoon. My finished cannon real five o'clock, we ordered pizza and I saw my phone ring at six forty pm minutes. They saw Christina's name, I knew instantly that was my heart. Call I answered she said did you finish candy. And I said, yes, I finished everything choose house, and you'd be there. I said I'll be there by nine pm. We went in for surgery at four AM, but the whole trip down there. You know, you're worried somebody's dying for me to live. That's the whole thing. You know, I texted my twenty two nurses that had from the five months prior that I was in there. Most all of them met me there. Life. Just kept going on woke up I woke up. Let's see surgery was till two pm. I was closed Sunday. I was up money out of bed by Monday was off the heartland long machine and everything they had me up a chair by Monday, the twenty second. So and then the the biggest part is not just getting the heart. But your body accepting you accepting and that was very fortunate. I just had my nineteenth biopsy was euro Jackson. So now really good this hardest a part of you. Yes. I went home on twenty one medications at time. I'm currently down to four. So let's talk a little bit about the organ donor because we are here for organ donor awareness month. And what do, you know about the person that gave you the heart and in how how did you reach out and talk to their family afterwards donor. I've wrote I've written letters to my donor mother. I do have a thirty year old male heart, and she has not responded back. She must not be ready to but she's taken three of my four letter. She currently has so okay. Maybe someday show that back to me, but everybody that was a part of the transplant all the team all the doctors or the nurses. You've you've all of them for the work that they've done over the years. I've gone back to every single admin nurse doctor anesthesia, this my own nurses, everybody and thanked them for doing what they did for me to leave me down this journey and one one thing I find remarkable story is that before this all happen. How old are you in this at all started fifty two and now your sixty in your life in that eight year span completely different completely different? At least the heart. Part because you stay active with the other activities you like to do hunting. You can. You do more in the retired life that I think most guys my age do in a workday life. But yet you have this this other restriction in your life that you you have to be mindful of your heart. Yes, I got it. I wear. I mean like I go to Westchester medical every week. Mary put a twelve hour day, Anna come home where my respirator all they along on their live on hand sanitizer. Any place them in crowds? I wear my mask Gotcha space, and before the the heart problems, you were working at Corning right Owens. Corning and worked your whole life never had history never had any issues. Nothing that bang. It all happened that one day. Whether thirty seven years there. So when you go in your new role now is as patient advocate. That's what I like to describe you as what is it like when you first walk into the hospital rooms at Westchester or the patient rooms, a capital cardiology associates in any talked to that person that's been in the place that you've been in. Well, when I do mostly is the doctors whoever gets my number out and asked me to see these patients, I go see them. I show them. My book created a book of my Jeremy, and I show my book because and people open right up immediately. They know I've been there where they're going. They know what I've been through. Once I show them, the pictures and how I spent one hundred seventy seven days in the hospital. It's easy for folks. Generally, I try to meet some folks in the Albany area meet them at their houses that I meet them as the first friendly face, Glenn these they get admitted on Monday or Tuesday, I'll go down that night sex o'clock or so after they went through the whole day of getting amid I'll be the first friendly face to see him say Hello, do you have an access badge? They have a staff batch for you. The hospitals yet. What are some of the conversations? I mean, the the fears that you help them overcome or just the the friendly face that you had mentioned just the procedures getting your swines catheter put in you know, the scary feeling. What's this big unit is going to hang off of you and people I just want to a party Saturday night. And that's what they brought up for the one year. He got his heart was down in New York. And he's remembered member Dave coming in. And then coming back that night and saying why was a brief just like you said it was really way over nervous didn't need to be that nervous about in. What I find fascinating is in your situation. The story is there's really nothing you could have done preventatively like lifestyle changes choices in life. This was a family history issue. That was just just going to happen to you. It was just going to happen. Those just it was there. I didn't know it was going to happen. I mean, my father had had heart problems. Now, I find out after my journey and stuff like that his father had heart problems through one of my father's sisters kids was telling me this. Okay. So now your messages, you know, even if you think that this is. Is just something to happen to my dad or his dad, you would talk to a younger person and say go talk to your doctor about this. Don't do an either. Don't wait go see someone. I mean, both my children during their thirties. They go they go get checked out now doctors, and because we know what to look for help. Start to see some very thankful. Today's medicine if you're going to get sick with the technology that's out there with my later in my elven, the ecm Michigan. These devices kept me alive and got me onto the transplant. This is hard.
