11:12 am
of mubarak could be followed by a change of regime hasn't really come up. his family and closest cronies have been imprisoned or accused will go on trial next month of all sorts of crimes against the people against the interests of country but of course field marshal tantawi members of the military route counsel for his appointees to a great extent across egypt people they will see that their local boss the local head of the industry should be changed so there's a sense that the old regime was decapitated but minus mubarak it's still in power ironically one of the big reasons of the revolution people's economic discontent this social this interim the irritation about unemployment and so on actually the process of getting rid of all barak has made in the short term the economy worse but i do think really there's an easy answer to egypt's economic problems because global oil prices global food prices and so on are rising and egypt is essentially a quarter and u.s.
