How a major power outage recurred? :: Khaleej Times

Meanwhile, it would do good for all of us if we take another look at that first outage — in May 1999. That edition saw the announcement of several committees, manifold meetings, all of them aimed at looking for solutions to prevent another such outage. So what happened? Why did it happen again? What did the committees come up with, and the meetings? Were there recommendations made, was action taken? Somebody should stand up and speak.
Khaleej Times has chosen an opportune time to use a specific example to make a general point. How many times are studies promised, but results never revealed? The citizens of the UAE ought to have access to the studies.

Furthermore, they ought to put you (or some economist) on the investigating committee, lest they misuse economics in their analysis of the situation.
