presented viewers with charts, which he said countered President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad's claims, which pinned the country's inflation rate at
16.55%. Mousavi showed a central bank chart that indicated the inflation
rate was 25.4%.


opponents accuse him of wrecking the economy, which suffers from 10.5
percent unemployment and an inflation rate of almost 24 percent, and
driving Iran into international isolation over the country’s nuclear


Ahmadinejad, Iran has experienced soaring inflation of 25 percent,
persistent unemployment of over 12 percent and international isolation,
blamed on the hardliner's anti-western and Israel-bashing tirades.
