چکیده [English]

The Out-Break of the" World War I" brought about bottlenecks in Iran's Commercial affairs. All those legal predicaments for commodity transport, because of the war, and the likelihood of famine, soared trade's limits. Presence of foreign troops encouraged insecurity and anarchy in the Country. Businessmen, embarrassed by the unsure situation, gave in to foreign govern­ments. October revolution in Russia gave a broad scope to commercial crisis in Iran. Widening of the war fronts, softened the way for Britain to tamper with businesses in Iran. They primed a roster," Iran's Black List", as they called it, through which they meddled in commercial trans­actions. Thereafter, Iranian businessmen were forced to play the role of brokers for non-Iranian companies, and some of them raised windfall money, making use of the distraught circum­stances during the war. There burgeoned institutions and bodies to unify businessmen at the same time in Iran. This is a temporary, or traverse period, before a post-war time-span emerged.
