The Emerging Egyptian-Iranian Strategic Alliance
By Joseph Klein
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Egypt makes him the first Iranian head of state to visit Egypt since Tehran broke off diplomatic relations with Cairo in 1980. Ahmadinejad is in Cairo for a summit meeting of the inter-governmental Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), but he hopes his meetings with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will help the Iranian regime to forge a strategic alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood-led government in Egypt.

The Iran & Muslim Brotherhood's Brief - A Future Middle Eastern Alliance
By Al Fadi

What if the Economy Never Recovers?
By Carl Schramm
There’s a growing portion of Americans who consider this a real possibility. It is common to hear people discuss 2% annual growth and 8% unemployment as the “new normal.” Respected economists like Robert Gordon even contend that our country’s franchise on innovation is being lost. Perhaps most alarming is that Americans between the ages of 18 and 27 have never known what it’s like to participate in a robust, growing, economy. The sentiment felt today is not unprecedented in history. During the Great Depression there was likewise a feeling that recovery might never come. It is assumed that we now really understand the events of 1929 and how the near decade long Depression finally came to an end.
