Ragui Assaad discusses the Egyptian labor market in his new book.
These conclusions are informed by Assaad's critically important research on Egypt's labor market. He is just back from a year in Cairo, where he led the third round in a longitudinal survey that tracks labor market participation by household in Egypt. The latest of Professor Assaad's surveys will help researchers and policymakers understand how individuals and households are dealing with the country's economic turmoil.
