Debt is unsustainably high, at 95% of GDP, and prices for things like diesel - US$0.8 per gallon - should rise. The problem is always how to do these things without triggering protests.

I imagine, though, that Jordan’s neighbours - and the US - do not want to see it collapse and will probably step in. Or at least that’s the pitch that I would be making if i was the Jordanian govt.
