Main government and inflation control with security tools

Controlling inflation and stabilizing the economy through security measures

According to Iran Gate, some government officials, including Ibrahim Raisi, have recently expressed their intention to control inflation by more than 40% through intensifying security measures in the markets. Economists believe that such an approach could worsen the situation and shrink people’s livelihoods even more than what we are currently witnessing.

Last week, a senior government official compared inflation to an unruly horse and claimed that the government can tame this horse through security tools. He argues that Western countries have managed to control inflation not through market mechanisms, but through the intervention of governance and the use of an iron fist to prevent unwanted and destructive interventions.

Similar statements have been heard multiple times from government tribunes, including those of Ibrahim Raisi. Even officials like Mohammad Reza Farzin, who is one of the few specialized officials in the thirteenth government, have repeatedly emphasized the need to suppress exchange rates. These statements indicate the existence of a dangerous and unscientific approach in the Raisi government that could push Iran’s economy towards further closure and destruction.

The myth of a free market

According to statements made by officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran, it can be said that the government of Ebrahim Raisi has the smallest belief in a free economy. It should be noted that all developed countries in the world have achieved progress by relying on the principles of a free market or a liberal economy. However, the government’s approach has been different and indicates the existence of a motivation to reinvent the wheel among senior government officials.

Many government officials speak of the myth of the market mechanism. Among these officials, traces of Muslim communists can also be seen, who have infiltrated various levels of the thirteenth government. This infiltration has managed to distort and undermine a few correct and principled policies of the government, making the situation more severe for ordinary citizens of the country.

Economist or Muslim communist?

After the establishment of the government of Ebrahim Raisi, we have witnessed the withdrawal of a group of media activists who were referred to as economists. These individuals, who were previously known as activists on social networks and at best as economic experts, have now emerged and become prominent as economists in pro-Raisi media outlets.

These individuals, primarily known as Muslim communists in conventional categorizations, mostly consider the free market mechanism as a myth. However, state-supporting media, without any academic backing, attribute the title of economist to active Muslim communists on social networks.

Suppressing inflation with coercive tools

The main characteristic of these individuals is denying the market mechanism and advocating for the comprehensive entry of the government into the economic sphere. Muslim communists believe that Western countries, which present a display of free market economics to the world, also extensively intervene in markets. According to this group’s belief, Ibrahim Raisi’s government should also bring markets under its control and surround them using coercive security tools in order to achieve inflation control.

One example of this approach is the adoption of a policy to suppress exchange rates at different times during Ibrahim Raisi’s presidency. This policy has affected the currency and gold markets in the autumn of 1400 and 1401. Even at the highest levels of government management, this approach is prevalent. The Central Bank’s governor has repeatedly emphasized the need to deal with media outlets that reflect the free market exchange rate.

A major danger

According to management experts, Ibrahim Raisi has unprecedentedly emptied the government of technocrats and elites. Statistics also indicate extensive turnover among middle managers in the government, with some reports suggesting more than a 50% change in middle managers in the country’s economic ministries. For example, during the 9-month period when Hojjat al-Islam Abdolmaleki served as the Minister of Labor, more than 800 middle managers in this ministry and its subsidiary companies were replaced.

He had announced the deployment of revolutionary and committed forces instead of previous technocratic and liberal managers, and now it has become clear that such an approach is not only prevalent in the Ministry of Labor but also in ministries such as Economy, Roads and Urban Development, Petroleum, Jihad Agriculture, Power, and even the Central Bank.

This news can be a very dangerous sign of a sudden and deadly collapse of the country’s management level, a collapse that will result in the depletion of the managerial body from skilled and competent forces and can guide the economy towards a deep abyss. An abyss where not only will inflation be uncontrollable, but even the preservation of the governing structure under the name of the Islamic Republic will be impossible.
