I think they'd be better off to go without democracy for twenty years or so and rock a Lee Kuan Yew style benevolent dictatorship. Economic progress should be paramount for Egypt, and countries tend not to pull themselves out of poverty through democratic rule. In a democracy the temptation is too great to grab as much as possible while in power because you don't know how long you'll be in power. Follow Korea, follow Taiwan, follow Malaysia and Singapore.
