17% of Central govt Income comes from Income tax and this 17% goes to Defense (8 %) and Central govt schemes ( 9 % ) . So our money is used to spend on Defense sector and central govt schemes which Politicians announce like "We did this and we did that" .

Dwfense is just an example, you can add any other thing such as pension etc also instead of defence.

It definitely feels like it.

What is the salary bracket for a performance manager at a tier 1 global agency in Dubai? I'm evaluating an offer so would appreciate input!

Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?
