6-20-2012 SWFloridaGuy: In reference to that negative article from Forbes yesterday: It's funny we see these reporters do their little fluff pieces on the IQD and 99% of the time they seem completely uninformed as to Iraq's political and economic situation. They don't appear to put much effort into their research which is fraught with ambiguity and they rarely present a reasonable theorem that supports their doubt.
Maybe these reports are released for the sole purpose of quelling the amount hype and attention this investment has received. Just like the banks have been hounded with questions, I'm sure they have also.
Either way it appears we are light years ahead of them when it comes to Iraq's economic future. The ones who know it has potential or are privy that information are certainly not about to publish something that would galvanize the masses to their nearest dinar dealer. I've always said real intel never makes it into a public forum for obvious reasons.
It's imperative to the process they remain as furtive as possible. The people who do know aren't talking and at this point a decision may not have even been reached yet. We do know Iraq is a very wealthy country who is on the rise (if they can ever solve this political crisis) along with their exchange rate. It's just a matter time.
