Blessings, Darlings!

Yes, the Mubarek government has to go - they have a history of oppression and are the tool of the oligarchy. Yes, some coalition has to take its place that is not totally tied to the oligarchy (but, clearly, has to have the approval of the military).

I'm no policy or urban or economic development wonk, or an economic history buff (either professional or hobbyist).  But SOMEONE out there must be! 

How do you turn an oligarchy into something that allows for economic opportunity for everyone in the country?  What exactly does a government to do promote job development in this case, when just a relatively few families hold all the assets and apparently only hire people they know? 

Are they historic examples of this happening?  If so, tell me about them, please!

Frondly, totally at sea Fern
