An adjunct professor of history and political science at COCC says the worldwide recession hit Egypt especially hard. Alan Eisenberg says the average citizen there lost a lot of ground during the last three years. “There are many young men in the country who cannot afford even the money that they need to get married, because it's a very ceremonial process. They're frustrated that they go to college and they're driving taxi cabs,  cause there is no opportunity. And the government there as not been the type that has stimulated foreign direct investment.  So that there's a real absence of hopeful jobs that would raise someone up from poverty into the middle class.” He further explains there is a lot of corruption in the government and the elite class siphons off most of the country's wealth and the citizens feel they are getting a very minute fraction of the country's wealth.
