Iran has faced economic sanctions since 2002 because of its desire to enrich uranium and intransigence in clarifying its purposes. The UN, US, and EU have since progressively stepped up their economic pressure. Consequently the Iranian economy has suffered, with high unemployment, inflation, and a collapse in oil revenues.
Following the breakthrough in negotiations, a respite has been achieved for the country, and parties both domestically and internationally are eyeing Iran's potential. A large population of highly skilled workers, a nominally diversified economy, and large oil and gas reserves has caught the eye of many investors.
The deal has bought a reprieve for six months, but many factors must be addressed in order to make it sustainable. Both parties have elements seeking to deride the deal. There are other issues with Iranian economy; a wave of policy liberalization aimed at freeing up the market didn't quite work when governmental factions acquired many assets.
