Revolution in Egypt Question 01:- What were the underlying causes, economic and political, of the collapse of the Mubarak regime? Answer:- Economic causes:- Inflation remained high at 12.8%. As the global economic crisis took place in the late 2000s, Egypt’s revenue drivers slowed down. Tourism which was once a $11 billion generator, accounting for 8.5% of gross domestic product, fell greatly in 2009 & 2010. Remittances from Egyptian expatriates working overseas which generated $8.5% biliion in 2008, declined sharply as construction projects in the Gulf were cut back or shut down. Revenue from the Suez Canal declined by 25% in 2009 as a result of the global economic slowdown. In addition, Egypt remained a country with a tremendous gap between the rich and poor. 44% Egytian are classified as poor or extremely poor with the monthly wage averaging $100. 2.6 million people are so pauper that their entire income can’t even cover their basic needs such as food. Political cause:- In January 2011, popular discontent took the streets. The riot was organized by a group of young technologically savvy Egyptian, who took hold of social network media such as Facebook and Twitter to organize mass demonstration hundreds of thousands of Egypitians poured into Cairo’s Tahrir Square and demanded the resignation of the Mubarak government. In addition to Hosni Mubarok’s reign over the Egyptian goverrnment has been 25 years and during this time, not only they have amassed a large personal fortune, that was banked over seas, but they also become corrupt in trying to maintain power. The elections and votes held were just a poorly veiled guise of democracy and freedom. It was not true universal Suffrage. In 2011 when the collapse happened, it was spear headed by the average man.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
