    • Abstract:
      The United States probably has worse relations with Iran than with any other country in the world. There is plenty there to arouse distrust, but the fact is, Iran has more long-term potential as a trading partner, and even as an economic and political ally, than any other country in the Middle East save Israel. Moreover, making peace is really up to us. For all their bellicose statements, Iranian leaders have shown many signs of a willingness to compromise and reestablish a relationship. Iran rates high in three vital areas: overall stability, economic potential, and the prospects for compatibility. Unlike most of its neighbors, Iran has settled its internal struggles and reemerged with functional republican institutions. Economically, Iran has suffered many blows since 1979, including a decline in oil production and war with Iraq. But Iran has a young population of nearly 60 million people and massive import and export needs. Economic improvements will require tough political decisions; the key to these reforms is reintegration into the world financial community, and the barrier to reintegration is bad U.S. relations. Yet, historically, the United States has been closer to Iran than to almost any other Third World country, and between us there is a reservoir of goodwill as well as of deep resentment. The U.S. government seems determined to go on punishing Iran, which, in turn, seems bent on pushing its own anti-American propaganda. But reconciliation is possible. And corporations are leading the way. U.S. exports to Iran have already reached $1.5 billion, but they could be greater if the United States consulted its own best long-term interests rather than its short-term political inclinations. INSET: Living and Breathing in Teheran. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
