Outlook for Egypt's economy - BBC report Was The Arab Spring Bad For Egypt? 2 days ago   05:35

Howard Johnson
(aired in December 2014) Now to Egypt where three years of political and social unrest -- wreaked havoc on the country’s economy. Foreign reserves plummeted as investors and tourists kept their distance. But hope was restored in June this year when former military General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi was elected President following a pledge to kickstart the economy. Backed by more than 10 billion dollars of aid from Gulf countries President Sisi announced a slew of infrastructure projects while raising taxes and slashing fuel subsidies.

Believes they.. By their own language arab . Nothing Else..Crooked Fox...They are Totally Unskilled peoples...What I meant...Blaaaaa Blaaaaaa Blaaaaaa .....................Egyptians
I'm convinced that Egypt is getting better... for those who are better off. Nothing in this video suggests optimism for Egypt's desperately poor who number in the tens of millions. The impoverished children, the failing state of Egypt's facilities (health, education, etc...). And this video even mentions subsidies as a good thing... it may be for the budget of the state, but who gets the short end of the stick? The poor of course. 

And as for the statement that "increased security may be paying off".. well I can give another earful about that.
