The consultancy group Geopoliticy says the price tag for rebellion in the Middle East is pretty steep. Crunching data from the IMF, the group finds (.pdf) the Arab Spring cost the region more than $50B in short-term losses with an economic tally that doesn't account for losses to human life, infrastructure, or investment losses. Revenue gainers in the region were the oil-exporting nations that saw limited domestic trouble - UAE, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia.
