|Abstract: ||With its small population base, and vast reserves of oil and natutal gas, Brunei Darussalam has been able to lever its economy into providing an enviable standard of living for its population and mega-billions for its ruling Royal family. Brunei Darussalam also shares the external vulnerabiiities of oil producer states. This article seeks to structurally expose these vulnerabilities with specific reference to the dynastic crisis of 2001-2002･ It also seeks to explain how the Sultanate recovered from this crisis without, however, precluding future crisis and even collapse whether from domestic(dynastic) or ext ernal shocks.|
