This note deals with economic insecurity if the Arab countries on the understanding that human security, in general, is a subset of human development defined as a process of widening the range of choices that people enjoy. It is noted that the two major components of human security are freedom from fear and freedom from want, and a major component of freedom from want is economic security. The most important aspects of economic security are real per capita income levels and their growth patterns; poverty , both material and human; employment opportunities; and, arrangements for social protection. The paper uses the most recent information to highlight the state of economic insecurity in the Arab countries. As is expected there is evidence to show that economic insecurity varies among the countries of the region from a low level of insecurity in the rich countries to a high level of insecurity in a number of countries with low and medium income.
