    • Abstract:
      This article identifies the key events and political decisions that influenced the economic situation in Iran since the Islamic revolution of February 1979. Iranian President Mohammad Khatami has advocated democracy and the establishment of a civil society since taking office in 1997. His foreign policy aims at ending Iran's relative isolation and integrating it into the world community. He has initiated domestic political reforms, with some success. His concept of freedom and democracy can well provide the needed foundations for a thriving private sector market economy. Ever since the revolution, Iran's private sector has had a second rate, subordinate status in the Iranian economy. Private entrepreneurs are discredited by unofficial propaganda, often being portrayed as blood-sucking capitalists in slogans plastered on Tehran walls or printed in the semi-official press. The prestige of private businessmen has been continuously eroded, as the state pays lip service to increased involvement by citizens in the economy.
