Effect Rising Dollar Rate on The Egyptian Market

JP Morgan, one of the world’s largest banks, issued a report at the beginning of March in which it said that the exchange rate of the Egyptian pound was unfair and the Egyptian pound rate should be reduced from 5% to 20%. Despite many objections, the Egyptian people were surprised on March 21 by the news of the increase in the dollar rate.

It will lead sequentially to a recession, economic recession, and high inflation rates.
Here, I believe that the only solution is to free launch the dollar rate, provide many services and discounts and adjust laws to protect society and preserve the poor and middle class in the country.
