What about the Middle East in 25 years?
They're rich now, and they don't need to work. They have plenty of money, and they don't care enough about things like education. They have a lot of oil, and everybody wants to buy their oil, so they can spend all the money they want. But when nobody wants to buy their oil, what will they do?
As for the rest of the Middle East, in 25 years, Iran might be the center of the Middle East.
It's their DNA. They say, "We're not a culture, we're a civilization. The Persian civilization." There is all this continuum from the Persian culture, a very sophisticated culture.
I talked to a woman in Iran. She said, "We went to Dubai the other day." "Well, how was it?" I asked. She said, "I cried. I could not stop crying when I saw Dubai." So I said, "Why did you cry?"
"That should be us," she said. "Thirty years ago, these people were peasants, eating sand, no education, and we were already a civilization, and then the train stopped. Thirty years, and we are still at the same station. This should be us, not them."
What I like about that is the frustration. I can feel that. These people are in the starting block. We're going to be very surprised.
