JerseyBoys: Were we ever able to confirm that the Iraqi people got paid at the new rate?
Already Blessed: JERS - IF ALL THE PEOPLE GOT PAID AT A NEW RATE....WE WOULDN'T BE HERE
Desmo: The window we are in right now is by far the most open one ive seen since I've been in this.....what scares me is that when this one closes is there a reasonable time frame after this to look to that keeps Iraq from backsliding after all the wonderful things they has progressed on.
Daz: HERE ARE ONLY TWO DISCOURAGEMENTS THAT COME TO MIND.....NOT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT THIS TILL AFTER IT HAPPENED OR LOSING MY CURRENCY BEFORE IT DID
tman23 I think to the "education" part to the public regarding monetary changes...Say they plan on lifting 3 zeros at the start of 2016 (Which Shabibi said in ink a few times) that the start of the year is favorable and not in the middle of a quarter or year...
That being taken into consideration...IMO, they would have to start educating before the time...and as they removed the 50 note and gave 60 days to turn them in....so goes the pre education part to new currency etc..
Point being...If this is going to go...it can go anytime after 10/6. We are going to know soon...and not Iraq "soon".
Thunderhawk: WTO Format to Eventually Replace TPP, TTIP - Sweden's National Trade Board
Negotiators for the wide-ranging US-led free-trade agreements in Europe and Asia will soon abandon the exclusive pacts and return to the more inclusive format of the World Trade Organization (WTO), a senior adviser of Sweden’s National Board of Trade said.
Anastasia Levchenko – The United States has been leading the charge to establish free trade blocs with Europe via the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the Pacific Rim nations via the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Both agreements have been criticized for being negotiated under unusual secrecy and accused of unfairly benefiting multinational corporations.
"We have the concern that TTIP could, in the long run, take energy from WTO. In the end, we will need to get back to the WTO, where everyone is member, not just the US," Swedish trade board’s Per Altenberg said.
Altenberg, the board’s trade and policy development analyst, addressed the WTO Public Forum’s working session on trade negotiations in the Swiss city of Geneva earlier on Thursday.
The TTIP seeks to streamline and deregulate trade between the United States and the European Union and, according to those who have seen the closely guarded text, includes stipulations that would enable multinational corporations to sidestep and even override sovereign governments from implementing national and international law.
Moreover, Per Altenberg thinks that the deal must open its doors to other countries, including BRICS member-states.
"TTIP must be open for other participants, such as Mexico or Turkey who should be able to join TTIP in future, and that relates to other countries too, BRICS countries too," National Board of Trade of Sweden senior adviser, Per Altenberg, said.
The global transparency organization WikiLeaks contends that TTIP will create a global economic bloc to rival BRICS, an association between Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
TTIP is widely criticized for bypassing the multilateral format provided by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and excluding BRICS countries. Its stated goal is to ease the flow of goods and services across the what would become the world’s largest free trade zone, accounting for 60 percent of global production.
The unusually secretive nature of the TTIP negotiations as well as its provisions to establish extraterritorial courts to settle trade disputes and the advantages afforded to multinational corporations have drawn criticism from activists and lawmakers.
