Duckyboy: This will take time and we all know that an RV will come after the new government is seated. For some reason, many out in dinar lala land think that by sacking Maliki, we'll see an RV and some say immediately. I beg to differ. Shabibi wants/needs a seated GOI before he RVs. Is it a requirement?
No, but that's what Shabibi wants and has stated this. Anyone out there stating that Shabibi has changed his mind, is not informed and is only working off rumor (I have never seen an article stating anything differently and if it's out there, show me). We still have the tariffs coming into effect that will immediately push the inflation rate over 10% and Shabibi (as he stated in April 2011) does not want this to happen.
So, it is still my belief that the Shabibi will RV prior to the tariffs going into effect. Inflation will still go up, but Iraqis money will actually be worth more that it is now, which will help.
