[wmawhite] Sager .......1 dinar is 1 dinar inside of Iraq whether the exchange rate is 1166 or 0.25.
[Sager] true but they'll have more purchasing power...
[millionday] it is not on that ratio however -- it is on a percentage basis
[wmawhite] Sager ..true, they will. But only after the goods bought outside of Iraq starts coming into Iraq.
[millionday] so it does make a difference and it includes citizens outside of the country and as we know 1 dinar is not the same everywhere yet for purchasing power
[Sager] wmawhite that's good then*
[millionday] brb with more
[Sager] See I knew md had a better answer*

[Sager] millionday is this it: IRAQ - 2013 ARTICLE IV CONSULTATION Note: The policy of publication of staff reports and other documents by the IMF allows for the deletion of market-sensitive information

[Sager] 16. In contrast, staff recommended liberalizing the foreign exchange market and improving the AML/CFT regime. Staff noted that effectively limiting supply might be inconsistent with a de facto fixed exchange rate regime. The CBI has ample international reserves to maintain the de facto peg.
Furthermore, AML/CFT standards do not contemplate ex-ante controls on foreign currency transactions, but focus on customer due diligence and reporting suspicious transactions to an operational and fully independent Financial Intelligence Unit.
In staff’s view, accelerating the liberalization of payments for current transactions would therefore be the best approach to eliminating distortions in the foreign exchange market, the exchange rate spread, and the rents it creates.

[faith1] milliondAY what do you mean,,, some of the things aren't so great for them
[millionday] entry tot he market is going to require a fixed or at least managed float -- the gain that will take place from the entry to the world is huge in the market and the opportunities are huge for any market players investors or which ever –
the problem with a reinstatement of the economy to the world is the protection it requires to prevent a huge upset of course and many other economic problems that could occur with no management ect --- that is a loss of gains that could occur for all businesses and entering businesses there as a matter of fact
[Godsalli/Jim] Plus stability, which Iraq does not have Million reading that report was like reading your news. It's like you wrote it!
[millionday] some of the monitoring and stipulations that are required right now really put a damper on some of the iraqi opportunities in ust business alone but there is no way to avoid it --- that is the also applied in the infrastructure that will be taking place --- think of an actual free market with all gains to be taken with no limitations of any kind smile
[millionday] wow would they have some serious gains in their households -- but due to entry to the globe there has to be global trade policies and ect ect ect
[millionday] not that it wont be a great thing to see and huge in the households for all that have had the opportunity to be there or invest but -- it could be much larger if you ask me without the rules of the powers that be -- just a thought
[ROBINREDHED] could be a good argument
[Auntie] Just what the heck is left to do*
[ROBINREDHED] Auntie got ME.....
[Auntie] Robinredhed Than lets do it!!!!
