These difficulties reflect the extent to which the PA has been unable to manage its economy under limited self-rule. On the one hand, the current state of affairs shows that the former territories have not altered their dependency on the Israeli economy. Nor has trade with Egypt, Jordan or the Gulf Arab countries replaced this dependency on Israel. On the other hand, the 1995 UNCTAD report revealed that not much had changed since the writing of the World Bank's 1993 volume on Developing the Occupied Territories: An Investment in Peace, which described the pre-self-rule policy environment as riddled with regulations that restricted entrepreneurial production and industrial growth, sustained asymmetric market relations with Israel, and maintained private sector financial illiquidity and fiscal policy compression.

The PA has been left with an economic catastrophe and inadequate resources to handle it. More problematically, it appeared likely that the final peace agreement would result in a patchwork of tiny densely populated Palestinian areas surrounded by heavily-armed Israeli occupation forces and Jewish settlers.
