The uprising in Tunisia (population: 10.5 million) was due to anger over:
-- soaring food prices,
-- high unemployment (13.3% overall, and 40% among young men), and
-- official corruption.
The upheaval in Egypt (population: 83 million) was due to anger over:
-- rising food prices,
-- high unemployment (9.4% overall, and 25% among young men and 59% among young women), and
-- official corruption.
In the U.S. (population: 307 million) we have:
-- food prices rising at a rate much faster than inflation,
-- an unemployment rate that is 9.4% overall (12.4% in CA) and over 20% among young men (highest among blacks and teenagers), and
-- a growing anger toward the government regarding its cozy relationship to the runaway corruption in Banking, Corporations, and on Wall Street.
