The monarch of of Saudi Arabia King Abdullah has just died and because the monarch system in the said country isn't progenitor, the crown would be pass to his brother, which some see it as a problem because he is said to be having a dementia. While they are looking for another one who much more capable, their economy would be hang wobbling like in any countries in times of finding a leader during which there is no clear leader yet.

I thought they did choose the next leader. King Salman? Do you refer to one after him?

@Scorpion

Let's say King Salman was getting old for position. Is it possible to move someone else up to his position even if he's alive?

I think the person has to be able to control the country and make wise choices which will benefit the country and economy will be looked after and the people need to be cared for. The king needs to be firm and rule with fairness and if a tyrant will be destroyed by ego and arrogance and not last too long on the throne. As Salman has health problems, a younger person needs to be chosen if his health goes worse and he too goes like his brother will cause further problems for the country.

Saudi Arabia economy is interlinked to other world countries meaning if something were to happen that uses instability then those other countries will get affected by it. As of now, the new king has been appointed and things went really smoothly. The country have firm rules and regulations. Its not like that the king dies things get changed. Everything will keep going as they supposed to be.

I dont see any instability coming out out of this situation. Saudi Arabia is very important to the world economy because of energy prices. Major instability would increase prices though not as much as a few years ago as other countries have increased energy production.
