TEMA: Una década de transformaciones en el mundo árabe

¿Goteo o caída?: crecimiento, pobreza y redes sociales de seguridad. El caso de Egipto

Gouda Abdel-Khalek

ABSTRACT

The neoliberal economic policy model focuses on fast growth, assuming that the benefits of growth will trickle down to the broader strata of the population. Actually, instead of trickle-down such model generated a fall-out in the form of massive unemployment, large inequality, and increasing poverty. Social safety nets (SSNs) were expanded to deal with the fall-out. Drawing on Egypt's own experience over the past 10-15 years, we stress the need to avoid the economic and social fall-out (unemployment, inequality and poverty). This is better done if social justice is factored into the process of policy making, as shown by the author's experience as a minister during 2010-2012.
