This paper offers a road map for future economic development in Egypt post-January 25th Revolution. It attempts to answer the following questions:

  • Which development model should Egypt follow in the wake of the revolution?
  • What can be done in the short-run to deal with the economic downturn while ensuring that measures adopted do no harm to future economic reform efforts?
  • Finally, once the dust settles and a new political system emerges, what can be done to achieve faster economic growth with greater equality among all Egyptians?

It argues that success on the political front is what will make it possible for Egypt to make progress on the economic development front.
