The Iranian regime is being devoured by the twin monsters of poverty and starvation, the reality of the depth of the economic crisis that has afflicted the majority of the Iranian population. While the population lives in extreme poverty, the Iranian Regime mafias of wealth own most of the industry.
Based on the regime’s economists, officials and media statistical data, the extent and depth of the poverty, unemployment, the gap between the rich and poor and its resulting social ills such as slum dwelling, homelessness, the selling of babies and body organs, prostitution, starvation etc. are really shocking and frightful.
Pointing to the spread of absolute poverty in the country, regime economist Hossein Raghfar says “according to our studies over the past few years, 33 percent of the country’s population is afflicted with absolute poverty, while another six percent, nearly five million, is close to starvation.”
The situation we are facing in Iran is a phenomenon called giants and Mafias of wealth, those who have taken all the wealth exclusively for themselves.
