THE MUSLIM ECONOMIC TRAP: THE CORRELATION OF GOVERNMENT ECONOMIC POWER WITH PRESENT-DAY TERRORISM

Reader comment on item: The Causes of Terrorism: It's Not about Money

Submitted by Carol M. Fuller (United States), Jul 11, 2008 at 16:08

Above is title of my book. ISBN 13: 978-1-59298-217-2

ISBN 10: 1-59298-217-4

Charts from Index of Economic Freedom correlate the above facts. Exceptions are the Gulf States in which there are business opportunities due to long history of commerce and British influence.
