Guide: The Challenges Egypt and the Morsi Aministration Must Face

Guide: The Challenges Egypt and the Morsi Aministration Must Face

This is a seriously through overview of what faces the Morsi administration by Bassem Sabry for al-Ahram — nearly 10,000 words. I have quibbles with a few things and the selection of issues (what are the priorities?) but this is a great place to start looking at, in an organized fashion, at some of the issues facing Egypt in the next year and more.

In fact I thought it was so useful I wanted an easier way to read it (right now al-Ahram links to each section separately), so I made it into a long form doc with a hyperlinked table of contents — available in PDF, RTF, HTML and, for true geeks, Markdown. I might use it as a base document to make my own running notes on the evolution of things.
