At a recent press
conference in Tehran, fraudulently elected president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed
that customary approaches used by economists to determine the poverty line are a
"hoax" and cannot be used as a measure to prove that there is poverty in Iran.
Existing facts, however, contradict Ahmadinejad's statement.

Biggest shame of IRI (to Kadivar)

by kharmagas on

Letting poverty and class gap reach the current level is the biggest shame of IRI and I saw it first hand last time I was in Iran. All factions of IRI are responsible for this. Shah with all his mistakes left Iran with a large middle class but Rafsnjanis, Khamenehis, Karroubies ..., pushed many from the middle to lower class. 

BTW, Kadivar, I am surprised that you posted this news instead of posting the news about some prince farting somewhere. Maybe even you are not a hopeless case after all.
