Ivory Coast dropped, Egypt rised GDP/c

35 years ago Ivory Coast and Egypt had the same GDP/capita and the same Life Expectancy. In  this year of revolution Egyptians have 4 fold better GDP/capita and live more than 10 years longer than Ivorians. So Egypt did progress in health and economy during Mubarak, but people also want democracy. Ivory Coast today had its elected president swarm in but he has to face a much worse challenge in Ivory Coast that the upcoming elected president will have in Egypt.
