Abstract:

The author believes that the mounting unrest in Egypt is caused by the inequitable distribution of wealth. He argues that the system appears to be enriching a relatively tiny elite, and this has provided openings for radicals who wish to destabilize the presidents rule. The author examines the unrest, identifies the forces behind it, and prescribes steps that can be taken to alleviate the situation. The study concludes that the key to Egypts future may be determined by President Mubaraks treatment of the powerful, but enigmatic, Muslim Brotherhood.
