From Boycott To Economic Cooperation: The Political Economy of the Arab Boycott of Israel
Gil Feiler, Ph.D.
Frank Cass, November 1998.
This is the first comprehensive and updated study of the Arab economic boycott of Israel to be published since it started to
disintegrate in the aftermath of he Madrid Conference of 1991. Gil Feiler explains the evolution and development of the boycott
which was first formally imposed by the Arab League in 1946, even before the State of Israel formally came into existence, and examines
all aspects - including the theory, practice and legality - of the longest lasting example of economic sanctions in the 20th century,
as seen from the American, Arab, European and Israeli perspectives. He also looks into the prospects of the slowly developing reality
of economic relations and co-operation between Israel and its neighbors which has accompanied the Middle East peacemaking process.
As well as its broad scope, the particular value of this study is that it is based in part on Arab archival material and recent
documents, as well as on interviews with a wide range of personalities, who were involved with the various aspects of the boycott
over the years. As an academic who specializes in Middle East economics, as well as the director of a firm that deals both with Middle
East market research and actual economic contacts in the region, Gil Feiler is well-equipped to present and analyze the phenomenon
of this boycott and its significance.

Although the Kuwaiti market is relatively small, franchising offers profitable opportunities. The population of 2.2 million have
high disposable income. At present, most franchises are in fast food, with most of the major US fast food companies already
established in the market.
Opportunities exist for franchises in other areas such as: automotive service centers, beauty salons, testing centers, dry
cleaning/laundry shops and photocopy stores. An example of a new franchise is the ACE Hardware store that opened in Kuwait city.
