This leads to a problem of democratic legitimacy since a member’s influence or voting power within such a decision-making system does not in general correspond to its voting weight.

It is also worth noting that during the oil boom years, despite having high domestic saving rates and high inflows of foreign aid, investment in the MENA region was well below the saving capacity. Consequently, resources were mostly diverted towards consumption as well as non-productive investment. The extent of crisis can be seen when we look at key macroeconomic indicators for countries in the region who were to become major recipients of IMF and World Bank programme loans, namely, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria.

Egypt Egypt received its first IMF loan in 1976 followed by a new phase of loans that commenced in 1987. The first 1976 loan does seem to coincide with a period of increased inflation and deterioration in the current account, although debt service, gross capital formation and GDP growth were not problematic.
