Iran's president blames West for economic crisis

Iran's president is blaming the West for the global economic meltdown and says capitalism is collapsing.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave an opening speech at the Economic Cooperation Organization summit in Tehran on Wednesday. The summit involves 10 regional countries including Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey, Pakistan and Uzbekistan.
Ahmadinejad called for a new economic system to replace capitalism that is based on respecting human values. He also called for greater regional economic integration.
Ahmadinejad is known for his anti-Western rhetoric, and this has angered some Iranians. They say he spends too much time slamming the West and not enough trying to fix Iran's economy, which has high inflation and unemployment.
