May 2011
Futurist;May/Jun2011, Vol. 45 Issue 3, p68
Several blogs are presented concerning the fall of Egypt's 30-year old dictatorship. One relates that the incident has shown the U.S. government the negative consequences of supporting convenient dictators can have negative consequences. Another speaks of the impact of the youth bulge in the Middle East, which contribute to having more people being unemployed and impoverished. It also includes one who asserts that the growing unemployement has led to insecurity over the country's future.
