London, 15 Aug - During his recent inauguration, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani promised to embark on an “economic revolution” in order to create jobs for the nation’s unemployed, but the main problem facing the Iranian people is not the economy but the Regime itself.

The economy is no doubt a big problem in Iran, which has led to almost 30% of Iranians living below the absolute poverty line and a quarter of the Iranian youth being unemployed, but this is due to the Regime continually pouring money into foreign conflicts and the military rather than projects that would benefit the people like infrastructure or health care.

Over two years ago the nuclear deal was agreed between Iran and major world powers including the United States. It allowed the Islamic Republic to get control over the consequences of years of sanctions that crippled the country’s economy. Its oil export and production has risen but companies are still hesitant about doing business with Iran.
