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.

London, 6 Aug - Iran thought that if it agreed to halt its nuclear program, tens of billions of dollars would come flowing into the country via foreign investment. However, this never happened and many believe it is because of the US.

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.

London, 13 Jul - Economic sanctions that brought down the economy was part of the discontent was displayed in the aftermath of the 2009 presidential election. Those massive street protests came at the height of the Arab Spring protests toppling governments throughout the Middle East and threatening Tehran. This led to the election of “moderate” Hassan Rouhani in 2013, and pushed through the nuclear deal that would lift the economic sanctions on Iran.

London, 13 Jul - Investing in Iran may appear appealing at first glance, but the risks far outweigh the benefits.

Iran may be the largest emerging market in the world, and is the second-largest economy in the Middle East, behind Saudi Arabia. Iran has an estimated $1.35 trillion of purchasing-power parity, and has the region’s second-largest population. Iran’s market is diverse, with very profitable energy, consumer, mining and tech sectors. Additionally, foreign products are popular among Iranians.
