No Money For A Sack Of Rice: Iranians Describe Crushing Impact Of Inflation
Iran is dealing with skyrocketing inflation, which some observers blame on government mismanagement. President Ebrahim Raisi has promised to take action to reverse the rising prices of food and other goods. But citizens told RFE/RL's Radio Farda that the situation is still dire and their daily lives have been badly impacted by the economic crisis. Iran's government systematically cracks down on the free flow of information and those who speak to foreign media may be subject to persecution. For that reason, the identities of the interviewees are not disclosed and their faces are blurred.
