    Another 6 months or so of fighting will bring hyperinflation. When Assad goes there is a very big chance of sectarian violence taking over so more people will be killed and the country will become a black market one and probably food shortages with instability because of sectarian violence and no money ( farming is an expensive business ). Anybody with money is going to leave the country leaving just the ones who can't afford to rebuild taking things from bad to worse. The economies of Jordan & Lebanon with limited recourses are going to suffer with the refugee situation just growing ( its already happening ). The palestinians situation may get more unstable with thousands of palestnians from Syria moving into the territories many of whom are totally against any kind of peacemaking. The problems in Syria have potential to be worse than the Labanon civil war during the 80s this time economics and refugee issues playing a much bigger role.
