(Video) Iran’s economic crises and the regime’s deadlock after the elections
For the first time, Iran is among the three worst performing countries in the resilience index and ranks 128th out of 130 countries surveyed.
PARIS, FRANCE, June 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Iran’s mock presidential election ended on June 19. As expected, the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei withdrew Ebrahim Raisi ballot boxes to consolidate his regime. The question is how did Khamenei, Raisi and the whole regime manage to resolve the economic crises, which endanger their “security”?
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that the Iranian economy is in free fall due to the regime’s institutionalized corruption. Therefore, economic resilience is an important economic indicator. Economic resilience is the ability of an economic system to overcome problems and obstacles that have arisen and to prepare the necessary preparations to overcome crises.
According to regime officials and state media, Iran’s economic resilience under the mullahs’ rule is in dire straits.
“For the first time, Iran is among the three countries with the worst performance in the resilience index and ranks 128th out of 130 countries surveyed. Haiti and Venezuela are less economically resilient, while Chad, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Mali, Mozambique, Nicaragua and Honduras have higher economic resilience than Iran, ”the June 19 wrote on state daily Eskenas, citing the Tehran Chamber of Commerce.
It should be noted that the outgoing president of the regime had victoriously asserted that “we have prevented the economy of the country from being like Venezuela”.
The Iranian economy suffers from corruption and has the lowest production rate. Many Iranians are unemployed and factories are closed. Due to the regime’s poor economic policies, such as printing banknotes, the inflation rate in Iran is rising and people are facing skyrocketing prices.
“We have a high rate of underemployment in many areas, and unfortunately we are hearing worrying news. People cannot manage their families with their current jobs. As a result, many people have two or three part-time jobs to be able to make ends meet, ”the public newspaper Eghtesad-e Pouya wrote on Tuesday, June 15, 2021.
The regime’s new president, Raisi, said during presidential debates that he would reopen many factories. However, the regime’s economists denied this false claim, pointing out that these factories had not been closed voluntarily. Instead, they were closed due to economic issues and a lack of support.
Many Iranian factories, with decades of experience, have been closed in recent years. “According to a shocking statistic, more than 1,460 factories were closed by banks in 2022 due to debt. This resulted in the closure of the production line and the unemployment of many workers, ”writes the daily Eskenas on June 20.
“Over 50% of the country’s industrial and production units are closed,” said Meysam Zali, former secretary for production facilitation and barrier removal, in 2019.
“One of the main reasons for the collapse of part of production and the closure of more than 40,000 industrial units and factories was uncontrolled imports,” said Javad Karimi-Ghodousi, one of the deputies. of the plan.
Another problem of the Iranian economy is the lack of foreign investment. “According to the latest UNCTAD report, the value of foreign direct investment in the world last year reached $ 999 billion, of which only $ 1.342 billion, or 0.13 percent, was made in Iran,” he said. writes the state agency Radar-e. Eghtesadi on June 24.
With Raisi as president of the regime, terrorism and human rights violations in Tehran will increase since Khamenei chose Raisi to consolidate his regime, or in other words, to oppress the people inside and export terrorism to the United States. ‘foreign. Thus, the regime would find itself in additional international isolation, which would reduce foreign investment. It should be noted that the only party that benefits from foreign investment in Iran is the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) who dominate the Iranian economy and operate under the pretext of “privatization”. In other words, while the regime’s activities have reduced foreign investment in Iran, foreign investment in Iran under the mullahs’ rule would not help the country’s economy.
Hossain Raghfar, one of the regime’s economists, said in April 2020: “While $ 20 billion disappeared from the country during a major corruption scandal, today we are asking the World Bank to give us 5 billions of dollars. Yet no one is responsible for this.
The mullahs’ corrupt regime has plundered Iran’s national wealth for the past 40 years. Iranians are currently experiencing high inflation due to corruption and the regime’s bad policies. One of the main reasons for rampant inflation in Iran, according to the regime’s economists, is “the inefficiency of the country’s financing method and budgetary system and the pressure of budgetary tasks on the resources of the banking network to compensate for the chronic and structural government budget deficit ”
“The average inflation rate in West Asia and North Africa in 2019 was equal to 1.1%, and the average inflation rate in all countries of the world was equal to 3.2%. This statistic clearly shows that the problem of inflation in the world is seen as a solved problem. In Iran, meanwhile, the 30-year average inflation rate has been over 21%, and the average inflation rate over the past ten years has been over 25%, ”wrote the 19 June Tejarat-e Farda.
As Iran faces severe economic crises, Khamenei picked Ebrahim Raisi, who has a very low level of education and knows nothing about the economy but loots people.
Freydoun Khavand, one of the regime’s economists pointed out on June 23 that Raisi “Raisi does not know the root causes of Iran’s economic decline over the past four decades, his economic discourse does not go beyond the line of unsubstantiated promises, and it offers ways to keep those promises that have been repeated for years.
“Now, before taking office as president, we remind you of the main challenges of the economy, and we announce, without warning, that it is too late to build the economy today”, writes the daily Eskenas on June 20.
It has only been a few days since Raisi became the new president of the regime. But the media and public officials speak explicitly of his lack of knowledge and willingness to resolve economic crises. These articles and warnings reflect the Iranian people’s historical non-regime in boycotting their sham presidential election. This national boycott has shown that the Iranian people see the regime as the root of their problems.
