This Week's Agenda: What's Next for Egypt? Sudan Votes for Secession

Monday, January 31, 2011

Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians are still in the streets to call for an end to the three-decade rule of President Hosni Mubarak. At issue for many protesters is the dire standard of living. How can a new government make things better? And here at home, as the country is trying to pull itself out of a recession, we look at whether unrest in Egypt have an impact on the American economy?

Rana Foroohar, assistant managing editor at Time Magazine, looks at the effects this uprising will have on the U.S. and Egyptian economies.

Further south in Africa, 99.57 percent of eligible voters declared their support for a separated South Sudan. Official results come out later this week, and Takeaway producer Noel King looks what the response will be from Northern Sudan.
