Saudi Arabia recently allowed full foreign ownership of firms, as well as firms providing in education including K-12 schools and health care. Similarly, World Bank simulations have estimated that poverty in Egypt would be cut by one-third if energy subsidies were reduced by 50 per cent and the savings used to finance a universal cash grant Sdralevich et al.
