Scientists say they can explain why sanctions have been hurting the rest in recent years.
Here’s what you need to know.
article By the time Iran sanctions are fully phased out, it may be too late to help the rest.
The sanctions have forced Iran to pay billions in back taxes and a significant share of its oil income to the central bank, but they have been also crippling its economy, limiting its access to foreign capital and driving up unemployment and inflation.
Some experts say the sanctions have also caused economic distortions in Iran that can be seen elsewhere.
And they say the world needs to stop trying to impose sanctions on Iran.
“We need to move beyond the sanctions,” said Jeffrey L. Stengel, a professor of international relations at Stanford University who studies the effects of sanctions.
“I’m not saying they’re perfect, but it’s much better than what we have now.”
Stengel said that the United States should end its current trade restrictions on Iran and instead focus on easing other trade restrictions, like the ones that prevent the import of goods from Iran and the country’s heavy reliance on oil revenues.
Stengels group is studying a new book called The Cost of War: The Impact of the War on Iran, published by Harvard University Press, which argues that the sanctions in effect have helped Iran become a more powerful country, which in turn has boosted its economy and helped to lift sanctions.
The book, written by the economist Michael Hudson, was released last month.
St.engels book argues that while the sanctions hurt Iran’s business sector, it also helped its military and political leadership, which has made it more dependent on its oil revenues than it was before the sanctions.
Stenger said the impact of the sanctions on the rest is that it has been a significant drag on the economy.
It has reduced Iranian exports and hurt the country economically, he said.
“The rest of us have seen this.
And we’re going to see it again,” he said, adding that the country has already begun to see an economic rebound.”
It is going to take a while for the economy to recover, but the people who have been hit by the sanctions and the rest have been going through hell,” Stengels said.
Iran has the world’s third-largest proven oil reserves, but its economy relies on oil and gas revenues and is dependent on foreign oil revenues, according to Stengelman.
Stinger said that while Iran’s economic downturn has not affected its economic growth, it has hurt its ability to buy goods and services.
The sanctions have caused the economy and foreign investors to focus on the United Kingdom and other countries that have eased their restrictions on Iranian exports, he added.
“When you think about the rest, they’ve seen their business activity decline and have had to pay higher import taxes,” he told The Associated Press.
The United States has been among the world powers trying to lift the sanctions, and President Donald Trump has said he hopes to do so.
Trump has promised to lift them again after a year-long hiatus, though it’s unclear if that would be possible.
Stenger said he doesn’t think it will be easy.
The economic impact of sanctionsOn Friday, the International Monetary Fund said it was considering lifting some of the economic sanctions on Iranian companies that were in place since the nuclear deal was signed in 2015.
The IMF said the economic impact on the country would be modest, but would hurt it badly.
“There is a lot of pressure on the Iranians, and if you think that the economic effects of these sanctions have reduced the impact on their economy, you have to be a little bit pessimistic,” Stinger said.
