How did post-independence Egypt attempt to fundamentally transform its economic structure? Post-Colonialisms Today researchers Kareem Megahed and Omar Ghannam discuss strategies such as targeting intermediate consumption, and hurdles such as dependency on foreign suppliers. They detail massive gains such as advancing women’s paid labor and social services and limitations.
