In one of his typical speeches, in 23, 4, 2008, in Hamedan, west of Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed that the country's economic problems can be solved by the "culture of martyrdom."
He went on saying "If we want to build the country, maintain our dignity and solve economic problems, we need the culture of martyrdom,". Ahmadinejad was quoted as Emphasising on martyrdom as a way of dying or being killed for one's religious beliefs. He said "Martyrdom is a quick and shortcut way to reach the summit of salvation."
Economy has been emerged as one of the serious woes of Ahmadinejad which is even citicised by other IRI's seniors. Mr. Ahmadinejad's lack of competence has been criticised for "mismanagement of economy", despite acquiring a hefty oil revenue on account of the boom in global prices.
This odd speech was one day after his economy and Finance Minister Davoud Danesh Jaafari was to hand over his post to his successor, and he used the occasion to lash out Ahmadinejad for pumping excessive liquidity into the economy to fund infrastructure projects, causing huge money supply growth and triggering Iran's current inflation of around 18 percent.
With 11% of the world's oil reserves, Iran is the world's fourth-largest crude oil exporter and the world's second gas producer. Government revenue of oil and gas is over 80%. Nevertheless, a great proportion of this national revenue is not invested to improve the cause of people, but is mainly set aside to finance the repressive organs and internal security services of the Mullahs' regime. In short, national income does not play an important role to improve national economy; rate of inflation, and unemployment increases while line of poverty sinks.
Ahmadinejad who now claims a higher price for Iranian oil, would not mention that people's economic problems in Iran are mainly due to the lack of competence of his corrupt and illegitimate regime which has been exploiting Iranian wealth for their own interests or, worse, the costs of their parasitic survival.
The fact is that Mullahs continue to ignore people's problems. Although Iran's economy is stagnating, consumer prices are raising rapidly, unemployment approaches 30 percent and Ahmadinejad has not redistributed oil profits to the poor as promised, the regime continues to invest in terrorism, nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. This explains the economic theory of Ahmadinejad's "Martyrdom" for Iranian people and means of parasitic survival for the anti-Iranian Mullahs.
