This paper presents historical–cultural as well as economic explanations and proposes that the interaction of both factors constitutes a cultural-economic syndrome accounting for the persistence of authoritarianism. Macro-quantitative analyses demonstrate the significant influence of this syndrome, which operates through a mechanism of mutual reinforcement and substitution. Departing from this diagnosis, potential remedies are discussed: political and economic reform measures pursued in the 1990s are explored, and the Gulf monarchies are classified according to four ideal-typical combinations of reform strategies.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/30"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: World Development ; 36 (2008), 12. - pp. 2586–2604</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Weiffen, Brigitte</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/15938"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
