live in poverty, the world food program. so it's almost 12 and a half 1000000 people struggled to find enough food every day. aside says the economic crisis in neighboring lebanon is not a bigger challenge than western sanctions, because it's companies can no longer circumvent sanctions through lebanon, to pay for imported goods. asa claims at least $40.00 to $60000000.00 worth of funds, a stuck in lebanon, since banks. they are locked accounts and blocked transfers. well, joshua landa is director of the center family studies at the university of oklahoma . he's joining us now from granville in voe, much good to have you with us on al jazeera and by should all aside says he wants to kick start in the economy. but there are that many countries who are willing to do business with him, and he's not really in control of fairly large sections of his own country. is this realistic? well, that's the desperate situation of the syrians. they are waiting to hear for some

light at the end of the tunnel, and he made a lot of excuses. is saying that the lebanese collapse of the banking system in lebanon. where, where almost all syrians did their banking and held their whatever money they had, were held these lebanese accounts. and he was counting on that money to be invested in syria for rebuilding. but as, as he said, it's somewhere near $40000000000.00 disappeared. and, and it's very hard because other countries, whether it's lebanon on the gulf countries, iraq are not allowed to invest in syria or they may be sanctioned companies from outside. so series are in a desperate situation. the average jerry and has about 20 percent of the wealth that they had before the revolution. i know my wife's relatives are all. busy suffering terribly, they get about one to 2 hours of electricity a day. my mother in law complains that the only use for the the refrigerator is to
6:35 pm
keep amps away from the food. and that's the kind of gallows humor that syrians are using today. talk through briefly the relationship between syria and lebanon in relation to obviously there's these billions of millions of dollars, which i did, but also claims a stuck in lebanese banks. while syria was a socialist country, it didn't have private banks. it was just beginning to establish private banks, but everybody didn't trust the government and they kept their money in lebanese banks, which they did trust and had been to the dollar for 23 years, meaning that the exchange rates wouldn't fluctuate. so people put their, their money in these dollar accounts, and lebanon went bankrupt. they had been running a ponzi scheme, all the money was gone, and that being syrians, the steering currency, since the bankruptcy and lebanon has fallen from $500.00 to a $1.00, to $4000.00 to a dollar. so people's people's wealth just collapsed and you know,
6:36 pm
a friend of mine was joking that his pension in syria today can buy him 9 chickens, the local store. and that's, that's really the situation. the syrians are in their, their pensions, their incomes are worth perhaps $20.00 a bond, and it can't live. so people without money from the outside, without private property that they can rent are really in desperate situation. is a bosh at all assad government really got the motivation to do something about the economy if it has essentially the get out clause or being able to say this is all down to the sanctions. this is, there is nothing we can do about this. well, if he did say that the sanctions were, could be dealt with, and if they can get around dummy said, we won't say how, but you know, siri, it doesn't have money. russia is, and china and so forth. are willing to invest
6:37 pm
a little bit and but only in industries like oil phosphates, where they can get their rewards and get their, their money back out. so this isn't, this is a very bad situation. iraq, as we know, is, is, is near bankruptcy. lebanon just fell into bankruptcy, so the main trading partners, jordan as well, that syria would normally count on for investment, for tourism, for trade are all in desperate situation. and this is a, a region wide collapse. and the gulf countries are where everybody is looking and they're beginning to men relations with syria, but still they won't invest. and, and that's, that means that aside, has a really hard time trying to generate some kind of investment because where's it going to come from? georgia is always good to get your thoughts and on situations like this. and we appreciate you being an audience, as always. thank you very much indeed by your local media and belgium says the
