The economies of the revolution: From Saudi Arabia to Yemen, a country in desperate need of an economic kick start as it stagnates under political and social pressure.

And Bahrain, where land was sold for as little as $3: We talk to the people who want it back and explore the country's wider issues.

Plus, banking on women: They are better with money, better with debt and better at investing - so say the banks of Qatar at least.

This episode of Counting the Cost aired from Friday, April 1, 2011.
