Most economic problems are due “mismanagement” not sanctions

Wednesday, 23 January 2013

Mohsen Rezaee, Expediency Council Secretary, said during the Resistance Economy Conference that the idea behind Khamenei’s “resistance economy,” is to resolve poverty and unemployment in Iran. He added, “The resistance economy means fighting poverty and inflation so that (external and internal) economic pressures are not able to create problems for the people.” Rezaee added that most economic problems people are facing are not caused by the West’s sanctions, but they are the result of “mismanagement” by the country’s officials. He added, “By intensifying economic pressure, Iran’s enemies intend to cause problems for the people so that they can overthrow the (Islamic) system by protesting in the streets.”
