The economic effects of Israel invading Iran

Pravda’s take on warships looming around Iran:

Israel will never allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, and Iran is absolutely determined to continue developing a nuclear program. War between Israel and Iran would not just affect the Middle East – it would have staggering implications for the rest of the globe.

1) The Price Of Oil Would Skyrocket – One of the very first things a war with Iran would do is that it would severely constrict or even shut down 20% of the world’s oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz. Oil prices would rise to $250 per barrel. And 8 or 10 dollars for a gallon of gasoline.

2) Fear Would Explode In World Financial Markets – And what happens when panic grips financial markets? What happens is that they crash.

3) World Trade Would Instantly Seize Up – Today, the economies of virtually every nation are highly interdependent. And it could push many nations around the world into a full-blown depression.

4) Military Spending Would Escalate – The U.S. would be spending a lot of money and resources to support Israel and to build up military assets in the region in case a wider war broke out. The amount of money the U.S. government could be forced to spend could be absolutely staggering.

5) Russia Would Greatly Benefit – Russia and other major oil producers outside of the Middle East would greatly benefit if a war with Iran erupts. Russia is already the number one oil producer in the world, and if supplies out of the Middle East were disrupted for any period of time it would mean an unprecedented windfall for the Russian Bear.

6) Massive Inflation – A huge jump in the price of oil and dramatically increased military spending by the U.S. government would most definitely lead to price inflation.

7) The Price Of Gold Would Go Through The Roof

Even without a war with Iran, incredibly hard economic times are on the way, so if a war does happen it could mean a complete and total economic disaster.

  2. OUR THANKS GO TO THE DISCERNING WRITER OF THIS MESSAGE.

    WE HAVE WRITTEN IN A SIMILAR WAY.

    FOR US AS EVANGELICAL BELIEVERS IN THE BIBLE/ TANAKH THESE CONCEPTS OF A WAR BETWEEN ISRAEL AND IRAN, ARE PROPHESIED CLEARLY IN THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH CHAPTER 49: 37.
    ONLY ONE VERSE BUT IT SAYS:-
    GOD WILL – SEND DISASTER ON ‘ELAM’ [MODERN IRAN]
    GOD WILL – SHATTER THEM,
    GOD WILL -PURSUE THEM…
    MAYBE IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT SOMETHING LIKE 53,000 PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN SEVERAL BIG EARTHQUAKES [DISASTERS] IN THE LAST 10 YEARS!
    BUT GOD ALWAYS USES HUMAN AGENTS – AND IN THIS CASE IT IS CLEAR ISRAEL WILL NEVER, EVER HAVE ANY PEACE OR SECURITY WHILE IRAN IS AS POWERFUL AND SUPPORTIVE OF ITS PROXIES, – HAMAS, HIZBALLAH AND SYRIA.
    SO SADLY WAR BETWEEN THESE NATIONS IS IMMANENT. FORTUNATELY MANY IRANIANS HAVE FOUND THE REAL TRUTH THROUGH GOD’S WORD!
    Thanks for this opportunity of sharing these perspectives.
    Suzanna
