Khaleej Times: Iranians Blaming Ahmadinejad , Nukes For Sluggish Economy

The Khaleej Times, a popular English language newspaper from, Dubai, UAE, has this interesting story about capital flight and domestic economic turmoil in Iran. Some Iranian businessmen are blaming the fiscal downturn on the rise and policies of extremist president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his recent moves to isolate Iran on the world stage. Good for these businessmen.

The article goes on to explain that, since the start of US sanctions 27 years ago, Iran has depended in part on foreign investment from other international partners for domestic growth, infrastructure and development. Capital flight, destabilizing to any economy, would be especially problematic, then, for a country in Iran's position. The article doesn't ask (and so I must) why Russia and China aren't stepping into this investment vacuum. Perhaps they see the writing on the wall. Perhaps they're too busy cultivating new relationships with the government in Sudan.
