5-7-2012 Breitling: You just don't redenominate for no reason.
The redenomination is the result of the reduction of the money supply and the value added to it. They need the smaller notes to represent that.
They have to raise the value & lower the money supply at the same time. That forces them to change to rate, so they have to redenominate.
You have to have currency that represents the new count of dinar with the higher number on it. People don't understand the numbers, these guys that say it's going to revalue at $4 or $5, they don't get it.
