Egypt? Its not as bad as people think



January 31, 2011 – Comments (1)

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.

America take heed… We must act fast to help stabilize our ever growing legions of disenfranchised young people.


Thats a message I took off from a post to a CNBC news report.
