Apparently this is being led by local merchants...and likely triggered by the collapse of Iranian currency in recent weeks
The merchant class of Tehran played a massive role in the 1979 Revolution

  • Their Rial is taking a nose dive.. how long until they need Zimbabwe's help to grow their economy back :P

    Proof the nuclear program is not peaceful.. no country would let their people/economy suffer so bad just for a peaceful nuclear power plant. They would put it on hold and figure it out. Nope let the people starve so they can't afford the power the plant generates!

    • @Aariss
      1 year ago exchanging 1,250 tooman would have got you (1 US dollar), today you have to pay 3,650 tooman.
      you do the math, more than 2000% percent inflation, their government says they have only had 25% inflation since last year which is absurd.
      in iran nobody uses the term rial because then you have to add shitloads of zeros to it, they use the term tooman so they can lay of a few of them zeros.

    • @al-queefa it's still traded as Rial on the boards and the Toman(unofficial) is based off the Rial rate.

      Your math is buggered it's just over 200% not 2000.

    • @Aariss
      Oops my finger slipped, didn't realize that!
      I've been living in Canada for nearly 13 years now, but i was born there and i go there maybe once or twice every year, i know outside the boarder its called rial i don't disagree with you, but if you use the term rial inside the country there gonna think your retarded, if you check an "Iranian" currency exchange website they always mention tooman not rial since its just confusing, however if your not spending cash rather bouncing More..

    • @al-queefa Yeah.. they do call it toman in Iran like we say bucks (can i grab 2 bucks off you for coffee) But it's all tied into the Rial on the trade boards which is why i used it. Not arguing with you either just pointing it out. I feel bad for the People.. it's the government/religious power that is fucking it up. Maybe they can befriend Mugabe as an economic ally at this rate.
