Egypt’s Starvation Time
Yes food prices have come down because Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood
have made it so with their subsidies; how long does that last? Tourism is
down what - 50% - and was a huge contribution to their economy. Oil prices
are in decline so they don't have as much of that money either.
They have a population that requires about 90% of their food be imported
I think - maybe its 85% not sure; but they produce very little for themselves
and MUST buy outside the country. Russia pretty much cut them out for
4 months and they had to buy from the world market at costs that
put them close to bankruptcy. I think if you don't realize how scared some
where you may have never been without food for a while?
