Abstract: This paper analyzes the consequences of pursuing a less activist Government
employment stabilization policy strategy in Egypt. On the basis of a fairly stylized model we
find that a reduction of the Government’s involvement in the economy along with an
introduction of mild but binding firing regulations in the private sector may lead to a rise in total
employment and to an improvement in Egypt’s trade balance vis-à-vis the rest of the world.
