Today, each country is subjected to both domestic and foreign threats. In order to cope with these conditions, the countries choose a set of solutions that are appropriate to the governing structure. In 2013, the concept of resistance economy was introduced in Iran. After a few years since the introduction of this concept and the existence of a series of ambiguities in its implementation, this paper attempted to assess the views of the Graduate studies of Tabriz University on the concept, the causes, the consequences of its failure as well as the solutions. This research was a qualitatively one and the were collected through the interview. The findings show that the opposition to the teachings of capitalism, globalization and the necessity of interaction with the world, the need for the Islamic economy, the lack of a common sense horizon and international sanctions against Iran are among the causes of offering the concept of resistance economy. The core concept of this research, " Economy in Shadow " emphasizes that the lack of links to the global economy, the lack of education of people and authorities, the erosion of institutional trust and ignorance can have psychological, social, economic, and international consequences, and it will be only a discourse and will not be operationalized.
