What? No “Happy Meals” for Egypt’s children?! Why not?!

Here are some facts worth some serious contemplation separately and together. Though, according to recent PEW Research at least 50% of Americans are entirely clueless about events in Egypt. So if you’re an American who has fallen into that dark hole of the 50% who think what goes on in Egypt is none of your concern–well, you are excused from completing this reading assignment. Heads up though,  a wake up call will come soon enough because of the way money flows around the globe.  

CNN Money report: “About 40% of Egypt’s citizens live on less than $2 a day….” 

I don’t think you can purchase a fast food “Happy Meal” in the states for less than $2.50 without tax. That’s one junk food meal, complete with a toy, for one tiny tot being conditioned to explode into obesity with continued long term consumption of happy meal upgrades. You might be able to buy some cheap eggs and a very poor quality loaf of bread for approximately two dollars–before tax.

Politicol News Update 9 February 2011:  Mubarak family worth estimated at $90 Billion.

Egypt has a population of over 80 million.

Question: So who has has been experiencing the real economic crisis?

Enough said? Care to add something to the fact bowl?

art marketing research

Greetings to all you yapping visitors who comment and converse, those of you who roam in and out every so often, and the silent lurkers too. I appreciate all of you making the effort to surf into mi casa whenever you take a fancy to do so.  I have a favor to ask those of you who enjoy my efforts at visual arts.  Need to make some choices and decisions about pieces for printing. Am hoping a few of you will provide some information regarding what really engages you–what you really like enough that you might seriously consider one for yourself or as a gift for someone else.  So–if you explore the links to my energy-scapes or to shutterbug junkie and see something you consider appealing, please leave a comment here referencing the title.   It’s easy for me to pick what I like best–but that does not mean others will also like it. So–I’m trying to get some sense of what appeals to a random sampling of folks.  If anyone has a better notion about how to do a little market research of this sort, please don’t hesitate to educate moi.  Wish I could really serve everyone Kokot’s Spicey Chocolate Soup in return. Merci, gracias, thank you.
