The US, aided by Ahmadinejad’s crazed Keynesianism, is wrecking the Iranian economy, and strangling the people. As the rial plummets, police officials blame people holding gold and foreign currencies for their prudence. In addition to the anti-civilian sanctions, a war crime, as Bob Wenzel has pointed out, the CIA and Mossad are rumored to be printing vast numbers of rial as well. But, hey, wouldn’t that be a “stimulus”? Amidst the decades long cold war waged on it, Iran’s only hope is a gold rial and the free market. Anything else aids the country’s enemies, and punishes its people. (Thanks to Travis Holte)8:28 am on October 3, 2012 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
