Economy: Soviet Era Planning: The Plight of the Fourth Five-Year Plan
In its final days, the reformist Majles bypassed the Guardians Council and sent its final version of the fourth five-year economic and social development plan to the Expediency Council, in order to prevent the incoming conservative Majles to revise it. But yesterday, the Expediency Council sent the bill back to the Majles in apparent coordination with the conservative Guardians Council. The event marked another death for the reformist Majles, an article in the daily Shargh said. In today’s fast moving world, next year’s economic trends are hard to forecast, but the Islamic officials still draft soviet-style five-year economic plans, which pit one faction against the other and set policies and goals for no one to follow.
