    Because every other country with their "sophisticated" economic leadership is doing so much better.

    The only reason American newspapers and magazines are focusing on Iran's economy, just as they focus on Venezuela's economy or Cuba's economy and not, say, Thailand's economy or the economy of the Dominican Republic, is that the former are "enemies" of the U.S., and they're doing their part to keep the American people ready and willing for action against these "horrible" people whenever our (mis)leadership decides it's time.

        Iceland is the exception to the rule because they are really down the crapper.
