I dont get it at all. Egypt has won on getting the president to resign, which is great, but arent they screwed either way? I mean all the protesting has cost their economy a crap load. Not to mention they are already super poor unless there government starts to give out money to everyone and then they just have huge inflation. And what about the person stepping in an continuing the same crap. And on top of this what happens when they open the stock market back up?

You can and should forget economy, if it is your freedom at stake. Many Egyptians say that they feel alive for the first time since decades. Caring only about econonmy and finances is a perfect drug in U.S. and Europe too. You people shouldnt fear about it, but THEY should.
Feeling alive, hmmm, breath and forget the goddamn green paper.

If they structure it right anyhow. Lets hope some fanatics don't try to grab for power.
They are less screwed this way.
