Abstract:

When Hassan's wife first saw the plot of land that was to be their new home, she said, 'I can only see the sky connected to the desert, ' and refused to get out of their car. Hassan was a bright young Egyptian graduate who like many in Egypt -- and across the world -- had believed his young family would have a bright future in the city. Now he's been tempted by a government offer of land to any graduate willing to farm it. Have Hassan and 40,000 other graduates been true pioneers, when the knowledge economy worldwide isn't providing enough jobs?
