Amina Abdel Razzak Abdel Meguid


I have waited many many years to write my father's story.  I have wanted to write and dedicate this website about his achievements as a father and as one of the most prominent Economists and Humanitarian men in the world. He was a great man and left a great legacy for Egypt. 

Beloved and still remembered by many many many people in Egypt and abroad, he is still remembered today as the brilliant Economist whom Anwar Sadat, the President of Egypt dubbed as "The Erhard of Egypt", the chief architect of Egypt's Economic Recovery.  President Sadat likened him to the famous and brilliant Economist Ludwig Erhard of post World War ll Germany. 

The legacy of my father was to change the economic soul and to change and affect every fiber of the society and thereby reaching and touching every individual of our great society,  Egypt and to inspire those who come after him.. My father lived and breathed economics and his beloved Egypt.  He lived his ideas, he reduced the most complicated economic problems to simple equations.  He even taught some statisticss to my husband and made him love it!  His legacy was the Economic Progress and the Open Door Policy he implimented towards the  prosperity of Egypt.
