Palestine’s economic crisis

Recent reports state that an economic crisis looms or has already taken grip of Palestine.

Workers struggle as they are separated from their farmland by the Apartheid Wall, jobs at UN agencies are limited to one three month contract per person, fishermen suffer attacks and the occupation limits progress leaving people dependent on aid. The US Congress has threatened to cut off aid, which reached $550 million in the fiscal year 2011, if the Palestinians continue with their plans for attaining statehood. In this edition of the show we look at the state of the economy, the factors keeping it depressed and the plans in place to lift it up.
