An optimistic view on future of Libya

This op-ed argues that if economic conditions are heatlhy enough to help pave the way to stability, Libya has a chance of becoming a real democratic force in the region.   Libya has no social institutions in place, a strategy which enabled Qaddafi to control power.  Should economic development be the first priority in this rich oil country before healthy  social institutions are put in place?  Should any of these two come first? or can the country rebuild simultaneously with these two priorities hand in hand?
