Looks like His Majesty's been extremely busy working on protesters' demands lately. Just last night he announced plans to establish a new government university (FINALLY! Oman's 2nd). He also revealed plans to establish an Islamic bank (one of the demands of the protesters). This is great news for Oman, and I encourage protesters to drop the idea of canceling all personal loans. Oman's budget is not infinite. Canceling loans is not an investment. Education is.
