One of the "reasons" for this change in power is said to be the rise in unemployment and rising food prices. The report states Egypts' unemployment rate is a steady 10% (although higher among younger adults just as the U.S.) and 70% live on $2 a day or less. Most americans live on much more but our unemployment is similiar and food costs are raising daily as is most of this world. The Jordan President canned his cabinet trying to be one step ahead. Riots were reported in Yemen. The power in the middle east seems to be under an entire regime change. America gets its oil cheaper than most countries in the world and we still cry at the pumps. Talk of inflation and hyperinflation continues and no ones' pay seems to inflate. So how will the aftermath effect the west and do you think our economy can go on business as usual much longer?
