Arab States decide to boost economies

This Al Jazeera article details work at the Arab League Summit to give Arab economies a boost.  The cynic in me wants to say that it is typical for the Arab League to decide something vague, like to improve their economies rather than do the opposite, but there are a few specifics to the plan.

Thamer al-Anni, an Arab League official said a special fund would be set up within weeks, after a two-year wait to operate as a bank that provides short and medium-term loans to young Arabs who want to start small businesses.

The various states are alarmed by the economic factors that drove the Tunisian revolt, and agree that no member state wants to encounter a similar fate.  Less developed countries will be the focus of special programs, but citizens of all countries can expect a little TLC from their governments as a result of the Tunisians.
