Abstract

For the past decades, different economic policies were implemented in order to better the Egyptians’ living standards. However when we look at where Egypt stands in terms of quality of education and labor efficiency, we realize that those policies did not help as much as we would have hoped. With an outlook on these different policies and potential solutions to overcome their inefficiencies, the author analyzes a potential starting point which includes working on the education sector in order to upgrade the Egyptians’ living standards and hopefully, the growth path of the economy. It was found that a simple increase of 20% in the quality of education leads to almost double the average growth rate of the country.
