World Weekly with Gideon Rachman
  • Unrest in Egypt Jan 27, 2011
  • In a special edition of the podcast, we assess the significance of the demonstrations in Egypt, the threat they pose to the ruling regime and the implications for dynastic succession in the Arab world.

    We also look how investors are reacting to the unrest in both Egypt and Yemen, the effect on the regional stock markets, the decline of the Egyptian pound and the potential knock-on effect on food prices.

    Presented by James Blitz, with Roula Khalaf, Middle East editor, Robin Wigglesworth, Gulf economic correspondent and Middle East correspondent Michael Peel.

    Produced by Emily Cadman
