In the meantime, launched an economic " morning " campaign to publicize the importance of such laws through visions and analyzes of economists , Taking continue this campaign has met with anyone interested in economic affairs , Dr. Raed Fahmi , Minister of Science and Technology , the former saying to us :
[millionday] "This law is of great importance requires discussion and enriched with visions of the owners of expertise and competence , but apparently that the council could only discuss it by some specialists and representatives of organizations and governmental and non- governmental organizations"
He said despite the importance of these posts , but I find the need to be given more attention across the display to discuss the extensive not narrow and enjoys the attention it deserves by the media and specialists and forces and parties ,
trade unions and associations of local and civil society organizations for the interest rate is the most important and broader and more comprehensive in terms of the law and out format to avoid falling into the errors.
believes Fahmi need to make notes to take it out Bondj formula among the observations noted that in Article (1 - i) the definition of economic reform ,
[millionday] " the restructuring of the Iraqi economy according to the principles of economics and modern requirements of the transition to a market economy.
Fahmi said is worth recalling that the the Constitution does not provide for the expression is subject to market economy , we find the term " principles of the modern economy , " and in Article ( 25), the expression " ... supported the latest techniques of market principles and encouraging investment " as in Article ( 112).
Vtobeir market economy is not sufficient to determine the nature of the regime Our economic to achieve , there is a system of social market economy in Germany, and the socialist market economy in China, we also mixed economies in Europe also fall within the forms of a market economy .
[millionday] He pointed out that there are different systems for market economy differs in the form and degree of state intervention in the economy and it seems that the bill tends to be understood liberal market economy where subsides when state intervention in the economy to the lowest score and limited its role to jobs sovereign and play the role of " keeper" .
This is reflected in the multiplicity of the reference to " free market economy " as in the material ( 2) and ( 4 ) , for example
[millionday] He said that this requires that being more precise characterization of the nature of the economic system that seeks him of the Iraqi state and aims his reform . If in the articles of the Constitution 26 to 36 , we find that it assumes a high level of state intervention in the economy in order to achieve the obligations and rights set forth in these materials ,
and if we add to that possession of state oil resources , the role of the state is present strongly in the Iraqi economy for many years to come What makes the economic system consistent with the articles of the Constitution is closer to the " mixed economy ."
[millionday] note -- understand that the economic reform is written -- they are not talking about redoing it and they are discussing the many different market economies in the world and even with these differences -- they are successful --
[millionday] what they are saying in the first part is that the parliament and also committees are discussing the reform itself and it will be compliant to the constitution
[millionday] they have also told us that the set interest rates have not been completed by all but of course we know that is just an excuse because that changes
[millionday] according to the cost of living and inflation ---- and health of the economy in some instances -- it is a tool used by the gov to change economic condition
[lojak] millionday so this long piece is basically saying that the econ reform law is being explained in detail to parliament...as it is complicated--and they are in this process right now??
[millionday] He concluded by saying that he is not accurate as stipulated in the reasons that the provisions of the Constitution calls to transform the Iraqi economy to a market economy ,
Valadeg be the goal of reform is to support and activate the mechanisms of action of the competitive market in the Iraqi economy for the purpose of raising productivity and efficiency in the use of material and human resources , pointing out that ( a 2 - first) set the goal of law restructuring the Iraqi economy is to increase productivity and ensure competition any limited objective basis on the restructuring on the economic side , but
[millionday] no -- it is saying that they are reading it and taking their time with it -- they are saying this to the citizens to explain what is taking them so long
lojak] millionday ok gotcha ..
[Godsalli/Jim] Taking their time? I don't believe it
[millionday] it has made it through maliki and the ministers so we can expect for this to only be put through when everything has a bow on it smile
[millionday] it is assumed that there will be a social dimension is present in the process of restructuring the consequent social effects , and not enough trying to address these effects when referring to " ease the cost of reform."
said the former minister that he received within the objectives of the law to achieve justice in the distribution of returns of economic activities , and achieve economic development, comprehensive , these goals can not be achieved unless the intervention of an effective state, and Houma incompatible with the liberal model is assumed implicitly in theory reference to the law.
[onthewings] Whew !! I was thinking we were in for another long haul
[millionday] smile - they are saying that -- they cant forget about the result to the people and the shock and just plain human reaction -- so the way to avoid that in the negative form is to give them money -- makes sense to me
[millionday] this week is very important with the economic conference we just had sunday and the wto hosted conference on friday and the some that will go on with trade partners on thursday and then we have the visit to washington on the 28th of this month and
[millionday] we have the g20 and central bankers meeting on friday as well - we have the 10th of next month i believe it is the 10th -- the imf and world bank having a huge conference with iraq
[millionday] so not the small things -- the big things going on make us believe that the economic reforms need to fall in
[ROBINREDHED] man i sure hope we are right there
[millionday] through press statements and news - i can say we sure are seeing a lot of preparation for it -- and maliki called for the country to go to a market economy so we shall see how fast they can move
[mdglow] millionday yep !! makes sense to me also, give me a boat load of money and i t would make life a whole lot easier and happier too !
[lojak] millionday i dont want to get everyone all over hyped, but I personally cant see Maliki going to dc without the RV done...
Flygirl02] Why Lojak.. They have gone to huge financial conferences without RV.
[lojak] Flygirl02 not with all of this other stuff either done, or in the final process, including the WTO conference, the econ reform law in Parliament now...etc
[millionday] they may have gone to many i agree but not about the economic reform and the transition to the market economy -- that is the encouraging difference - smile
