The World in Revolt

The people of Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, and Iran have all protested against their governments.
The protests in Tunisia and Egypt have toppled the dictatorial regimes once in place and are now governed by martial law.

These protests are in part a result of deteriorating economic conditions such as high unemployment, rampant inflation, and increased foreign investment. What are the common economic factors among countries that revolted? If these factors helped cause massive demonstations against the government, are these factors also present in other Middle Eastern Countries that have not revolted? Also, are there similar measures of inflation, unemployment and foreign investment in America?
