  • Analysis: Should Egypt’s president resign?

    Hundreds of thousands join mass protests at the Presidential Palace to demand the removal of President Morsi.

    BY FARAH HALIME Cairo - Some said it was the biggest protest they had ever witnessed in Egypt, even during the demonstrations against Hosni Mubarak, the former president. Indeed, yesterday’s anti-government marches calling for the resignation of President Mohammed Morsi exceeded everyone’s expectations in size and were, until late in the day, peaceful. Now, protestors, led by the “Tamarod” or “Rebel” grassroots opposition campaign, are putting increased pressure on Morsi to resign. The Rebel group say they have given the president until 5pm tomorrow to resign, after collecting 22 million signatures from Egyptians, surpassing the 15 million quota they had envisioned….

    Op-ed: Egypt’s economic siren

    The inflation resulting from the devaluation of the Egyptian currency implies an increase in prices of commodities.

    BY MOHAMED A. EL-ERIAN Newport Beach Facing a turbulent political situation and recurrent street protests, Egypt’s political elite would be well advised to focus on the economic implications of the current turmoil, whether they are in government or in opposition. Doing so would lead them to recognize seven compelling reasons why a more collaborative approach to solving Egypt’s problems is in the country’s collective interest, as well as in their own individual interests. First, if the social and political disorder persists, Egypt’s economy will end up with crippling inflation, severe balance-of-payments problems, and a budgetary crisis. The risk of a…

    Op-ed: How to grow our economy

    More important than any of the specifics is the very fact that Turkey has a vision that has led to the phenomenal growth of its economy..

    BY HISHAM EZZ EL-ARAB What can Egypt learn from Turkey? (Part II)  Just a decade ago, Turkey was on the edge of state bankruptcy. The political system was paralyzed, and the Istanbul stock market had crashed. The prices of cars and computers rose 50 percent and hundreds of thousands lost their jobs. But since then, during a decade of rule by the Justice and Development Party, the Turkish economy has tripled. They weathered the global financial crisis of 2008 better than most of their peers. Now, they are looking ahead to 2023 — the hundredth anniversary of their republic —…

    Euromoney debates restarting investment in Egypt

    Panelists at the Euromoney conference Tuesday debate Egypt's economic challenges.

    BY LEYLA DOSS Cairo A mixed rhetoric about the present and future of Egypt’s economy dominated  the two-day Euromoney Conference launched in Cairo Tuesday, which focused on restarting Egypt’s economy. Prime Minister Hisham Qandil said that the government aims to create 700,000 new jobs in the next five years and to increase small and medium investment projects by 30 percent. “We have also attempted to improve the political climate through better ties with African countries, like Sudan, South Africa, Algeria, as well as South East Asia, the Arab world, and the Muslim world. We want Egypt to be the Mecca…

    Women unconcerned with Sharia

    A recent Gallup report found that women are as likely as men to favor Sharia as a source of legislation.

    BY DALIA RABIE Cairo: At a time when a newly elected Islamist president is seen as a direct threat to women’s rights, a recent poll showed that Egyptian women are as likely as men to favor Sharia as a source of legislation, stating that their top concerns are rather economic and social development as well as security. Forty-four percent of women said they want Sharia as a source of new legislation, compared to 50 percent of men. While 38 percent of women said they prefer it to be a source of legislation, but not the main one, compared to 37…

    Hint of stability boosts stocks

    Some economists analysts have downplayed the significance of S&P's latest credit rating downgrade while emphasizing Egypt's pending economic crisis.

    BY AMIRA SALAH-AHMED Cairo: Egypt’s stock market has recouped last week’s losses and made some major gains over the past three days, rising around 12.6 percent since Sunday with many stocks reaching the allowed 10 percent increase.

    Political disarray hits economy

    Egypt’s stock market lost LE 18.396 billion of total market capitalization during the four-session week starting Monday.

    BY AMIRA SALAH-AHMED Cairo: The only thing more uncertain than who’s going to be Egypt’s next president, is how he’ll be able to keep the economy from crashing closer to junk status.The past week has seen the dissolution of parliament, the flux of the constituent assembly, a bold power grab by the ruling army council, and a presidential election that has led more to panic than to the picture of stability all were hoping for. With election results delayed until possibly Sunday and both candidates claiming victory, it’s all wreaking havoc on the nerves of the Egyptian people and reverberating…

    BY AMR RAMADAN Cairo: Egypt’s presidential candidates are polarizing on many levels, but they do have one thing in common: both face a dire economic situation that needs quick fixing as well as a long-term vision to solve countless longstanding socioeconomic ailments. In the June 16-17 runoff, voters face the unenviable choice between ousted president Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister, Ahmed Shafik, and the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), Mohamed Morsi. Over the past year and a half, economic issues have taken a back seat to political instability, lacking security and ideological power struggles that…

    A graph showing the EGX 30 performance in the past six months.

    BY AMIRA SALAH-AHMED Cairo: After spending the opening months of 2012 as one of the best performing markets in the region, Egypt’s stock market has reversed its upward trend, affected once again by an uncertain and consistently faltering political landscape. At the start of the year, the market seemed to be recovering from its sharp slide in the tumultuous year of 2011, as investors gained confidence that a solid transition process was in place that would lead up to an elected parliament, a new president and a fresh constitution. Once parliament was seated in late January — even as protesters…
