Nile water sharing Ethiopia (north and south) of Sudan and Egypt - 01/0

Ahmed Abdel Razzak Ahmed Salama

01/01/2012

Abstract The Nile River is considered the main source of water for the Nile basin countries. The water provided by the Nile does not satisfy the enormous demand of water in the region. In the early of the 21st century, it is expected that at least six out of the ten countries that share the Nile water will face water stress. Nile water for countries like Egypt and Sudan is considered a vital national priority. Moreover, the stochastic nature of water supply and dynamic nature of water demand imply an allocation model with certain characteristics in order to maximize the overall welfare. Thus, the need for Pareto-optimal model is a prerequisite as the unidirectional of the river, is often considered as a source of tension and conflict between countries that is difficult to solve. Our goal in this paper is to arrive at the Pareto-optimal allocation model that maximizes the welfare of Egypt and Ethiopia without causing any significant harm to any of them. The Model that will be developed in this paper follows the same methodology of D. Marc Kilgour and Ariel Dinar which is based on the idea of utilizing the water of the river by transferring it between countries within the river basin. To state differently, it allows the downstream countries that are in need for water to get it from an upstream country by compensating that country for less water available for usage. In this paper, the applicant will try to arrive at a solution to the growing demand of water in the Nile region which resulted in tension among the Sub-Saharan African nations.

Bread subsidies in Egypt - 01/0

Ahmed Abdel Razzak Ahmed Salama

01/01/2012

Abstract The topic of baladi bread subsidies is of great interest to the Egyptian people. About 80% of Egyptian people consume baladi bread. The food subsidy guarantees the supply of basic food to the poor. Subsidies protect the welfare of the poor and the economically disadvantaged. Consumer benefits from food subsidies are highest for baladi bread. Food subsidy programs are facing more criticism in developing countries because of their large contribution to government budget deficits. The cost of food subsidies reached about 1.8 % of the GDP in Egypt in 2008. Leakages in the baladi bread subsidy system are substantial. Baladi bread leakages at the national level were about 41 percent of the total supply in 2004/05. The higher the leakage is, the higher the cost of delivering subsides. There is a complete lack of targeting in the system. The system allows all customers to enjoy the benefits and there is minimal supervision to ensure that the bread reaches the poor. This research focuses on the targeting of baladi bread to the intended customers and explores the policy options in this regard. It derives the income elasticities of baladi bread for three income groups: high income, medium income, and low income. The study clearly illustrates that baladi bread is an inferior good for high-income families. The research also derives the demand function for the group of bread and cereals based on 2008/09 CAPMAS survey. The study reveals that poverty has almost no weight in deciding on the allocation of bread subsidies to different governorates. Field studies suggest that poor people prefer in- kind subsidies to cash subsidies because they do not trust the government.

Nile Basin Initiative: Challenges and Effectiveness in Sustainable Agricultural Development (A SWOT Analysis Approach) - 01/0

Abstract: Nile River is the main source of water for the Nile basin countries. The provided water does not satisfy the enormous demand of water in the region. It is expected that at least six out of the ten countries that share the Nile water will face water stress in the early 21st century. Nile water for the downstream countries like Egypt and Sudan is considered to be of a vital national priority. Sustainable agriculture as a way of raising food that is healthy for consumers and animals, that does not harm the environment, is humane for workers, respects animals, provides a fair wage to the farmer, and supports and enhances rural communities has become of a vital need to the Nile basin countries. Moreover, the stochastic nature of water supply and dynamic nature of water demand imply an allocation model with certain characteristics to maintain the sustainable development of the basin countries in order to maximize the overall welfare. Thus, the need for Pareto-optimal model is a prerequisite as the unidirectional of the river, is often considered as a source of tension and conflict between countries that is difficult to solve. Our goal in this paper is to arrive at the Pareto-optimal allocation model that maximizes the welfare of Egypt and Ethiopia without causing any significant harm to any of them. The Model that will be developed in this paper following the same methodology of D. Marc Kilgour and Ariel Dinar which is based on the idea of utilizing the water of the river by transferring it between countries within the river basin. To state differently, it allows the downstream countries that are in need for water to get it from an upstream country by compensating that country for less water available for usage, trying to balance the growing demand of water in the Nile region for the sustainable agricultural development , which would lead to food security raising the economic welfare for the basin countries.

Women in Egypt ( A driving force to economic growth) - 01/0

Ahmed Abdel Razzak Ahmed Salama

01/01/2011

I) Abstract: The beauty of economics lies in its reflection on almost everything that is important to our lives. To be able to acquire the skills to build an image of a problem and a possible valid solution to it is the main essence of economics. Thus, as an economist it is possible to base ones research in an area of his or her interest. In this study, one is particularly interested in women in general. In specific, the study admires the potential of women or their untapped potential in many cases. Thus, it was clear that such a potential could be taken in to the perspective of economics. That is, the main concern is to tackle the area of gender and relate it directly to the economy in general. Furthermore, it is of main concern to adequately be able to prove that women’s participation in the economy has a direct effect on the economy. The reasoning behind such thinking lies on the ground of the essential or necessary investment in women in a country such as that in education primarily. If women were to be given equal opportunities to expand their well being then this might be healthy for the economy as well. Egypt, a country which exhibits various controversies, is the main discussion in this study. Other countries could also be studied with regards to women’s participation. However, in this paper the main concern is Egypt. The word woman in Egypt is of striking resemblance to the symbol of an unemployed house wife. Such a reflection of women shouldn’t be relied upon especially when women as individuals are considered economy wise to be human capital. In other words, as long as women were given the proper education, such investment should be put in to use instead of being considered as untapped potential. First, before initiating such a study, it should be clear that it is not an aim to point out gender inequalities in Egypt; instead it is to properly identify a problem which rests amid many families whose female members drift in to being unemployed and thus are a waste to the economy. With that being said, it is also of main concern to point out that Egypt is not a country which prevents women’s advancement. The main issue here lies upon the complexity of education and employment policies which might be a discouragement for women. Further more, almost all countries exhibit such an issue of the underemployment of women. After my topic has been chosen, it was carried out by building a proper model for my theory reflecting women’s participation in the economy as in the labor force and education while directing those observations to the gross domestic production of Egypt. The results indicated a significance of both the education and employment of females to the GDP. The theory formulated, thus, was applicable since the model being tested suggested the significance of the variables being used.

The causes and effects of the subprime mortgage crisis - 01/0

Ahmed Abdel Razzak Ahmed Salama

01/01/2010

Abstract At the start of 2009, the subprime mortgage crisis resulted in a downturn in both the US and the UK economies. The purpose of this research is to examine the causes and effects of the subprime mortgage crisis, looking at the process of securitization and how it took part in this recession. During the period of 2000, economic growth resulted in the burst of a housing bubble. The housing market kept growing, with real estate prices increasing at a quick rate. Near the beginning of 2000, when the economy was about to enter an economic slump after the stock market crash, the US government’s easy monetary policy created requirements for the real estate bubble. However, according to the regression analysis performed in the paper, it seems like the drop in interest rates did not have an effect on the recession in the US and the UK. The low interest rates created easy credit conditions and more subprime borrowers entered the market. Even though the subprime mortgages were of great risk, this current economic downturn wouldn’t have occurred if the banks didn’t sell billions of collateralized debt obligations which included subprime mortgages to institutions. Therefore, the monetary policy of the Fed is considered to be a smaller cause of the crisis and securitization as the main problem. This paper also included a comparison of the subprime mortgage crisis and their effects on both countries, the US and the UK.
