Reader comment on item: The West Lacks a Plan
in response to reader comment: It's a matter of scale

Submitted by Mark (United States), Jul 21, 2015 at 09:34

On a global scale, Egypt does not count for much. Dear Michael , I doubt that you are talking about Egypt post 07/03/13 revolution. The problem with your view is that with all respect is short sighted. You are currently and due to the current economic problems, think that Egypt is done or does not count for much.

I totally understand where you are coming from. But you tend to neglect or avoid the bright future of this country. All big investment banks (i.e., Goldman Sac, Morgan Stantly, Chase , ....) put Egypt within the 20 largest economies by the year 2050. Even IMF holds the same view.

Your view reminds me excatly of Muslim Brotherhoods followers that currently would do anything to discredit good things that are currently going on in Egypt right now for their evil purpose.

Yes, Egypt currenlty receives support from the gulf countries, but who said that this situation will last long. Egypt will register 5% economic growth this current financial year and despite the security situation, this country is attracting more and more FDI.

I truly wonder the motives behind your negative view about Egypt.

Your view is either due to lack of knowledge or i would rather not to say what i think.
