Harvard Business Review on the Egyptian Revolution
The HBR blog writes on the impact of revolutions on business, when it came to Egypt they were quite pessimistic. As a cynic I kinda agree with them:
In Egypt, little has changed with Mubarak's ouster by the military, which plays a major role in the Egyptian economy. A third of the economy is under military control — military activities range from bakeries to appliance factories. With the armed forces' prestige at an all-time high, the chances of any serious economic reform in Egypt's future have plummeted, regardless of future political changes. If it was important to get a military partner on board as part of a business venture before the revolution, it's doubly important now.
