Tunisia was certainly the catalyst for the Egyptian revolution. Egypt's economic woes (unemployment and deminished purchasing power) created the potential for the Revolution. Left wing news outlets in the US and Europe (democracynow and The Gaurdian) are reporting the role of recent (2005 and on) neoliberal reforms in Egypt which helped to create the economic predicament. Moderate media outlets (like OPB) need to spend more time discussing these reforms and their effect on the Egyptian economy to decipher what role they played in the revolution.
Thanks for your time
