On the election
This site is about issues related to Iran’s economy, so I prefer to stay away from purely political topics, such as the controversial election outcome and its more recent tragic consequences. However, since one reader asked for my take on the election, I refer here to a short piece that I wrote last week for the New York Times blog, “room for debate.”
I received some critical email responses to this article, which were mostly motivated by the title that NYT had picked for the piece (not entirely misleading). A longer companion article is to appear shortly in the same place.
