In an analytical report appraising measures taken to curb inflation, the Majlis Research Center says the government has resorted largely to temporary and micro measures to curb inflation and control liquidity but in doing so has failed to address macro variables.  
Matching government measures against proposals made earlier by the MRC, the think tank said “although inflation has been tamed in recent months, the government had enforced only a fraction of the proposed measures.”
