Sharif invested in Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich Arab countries in the Middle East to rebuild his steel empire.  According to personal accounts and his time spent with Sharif, American historian Stephen Philips Cohen states in his book Idea of Pakistan : "Nawaz Sharif never forgave Bhutto after his steel empire was lost into the hands of Bhutto; and even after [Bhutto's] terrible end , Sharif publicly refused to forgive the soul of Bhutto or the Pakistan Peoples Party ."  After coming to national power in 1990, Sharif attempted to reverse Bhutto's nationalisation policies, introducing an economy based on privatisation and economic liberalisation .
