Challenges facing Iran’s urban economy
IUESA: Government’s fiscal contractionary policies to control inflation caused more unemployment and immigration, Dr. Zareie said.
Looking at marginalization in metropolises, he added marginalization and slums are symbols of poverty in society that occur because of no production and lack of liquidity.
Emphasizing on poverty dimensions and its tacit and implicit consequences in the country, he further said lack of appropriate job for graduated people will be followed by socio-economic problems.
Instead of directing Iran’s economy toward business and production development, government’s economic cabinet is looking forward invaluable contracts such as automobile deals with France and bus import from Turkey, he said.
He pointed to the failure of poverty alleviation policies in the country and said: statistics indicate that the government has not been successful in reducing poverty and the government cannot claim that by controlling inflation, poverty was reduced. Basically, poverty is affected by business market.
