Egypt. An olive revolt

Wave of various forms of self-expression and protests spread through a number of Arab states in the first quarter of 2011. All of them involved less or more numerous political rallies. Everywhere protesters demanded political changes blaming the authorities for their poverty. Sentiments for reforms of “Nasser era” and deep economic changes of that very time clearly came back. However, blaming ruling teams of Arab states for stagnation and impoverishment seems to be exaggerated and unfair. Reasons for lack of visible improvement in economic status of Arabic population, which was the major cause of the protests, have the structural character and are the outcome of huge population growth rate in Arabic countries in the recent time.
