I have just watched a program on one of my local PBS stations, KLCS, called World Business (sorry I can’t offer any more info).

But they are saying the international capital markets are evacuating Iran, like rats from a sinking ship, due to their nuclear ambitions, and belligerent rhetoric. It would seem, to the layman, as though an oil-rich nation could fund their expansion strictly on retained earnings. But it ain’t that simple – particularly when 17% of your population is on the payroll of the secret police.
