9-14-2012 Sandstorm: The more laws they pass, the more they cooperate and agree to move forward on policy, the better our chances become. I agree its important (HCL), but dont forget, they already had oil revenue sharing to the citizens in the 2012 budget.
So, they've had a law on the books this year as a temporary solution. Really good news if it passed. It's rare to see Iraqis finally agree on something.
9-14-2012 Lori C: Economic experts are talking about what a bright financial future Iraq will have if they can just get their political atmosphere under control. I think Talabani returning will be huge in this regard. Iraq needs it's leader back in country and healthy before they can move forward Parliament is busy working on amending the banking act, money laundering laws and trying to pass new economic laws. They will be back in session tomorrow.

9-14-2012 ISX: Asiacell has been admitted to the Iraq Stock Exchange (ISX) and trading of its shares could begin as soon as next month. We are just waiting for a few technical things to happen before we can start trading in Asiacell.
We need to contact the communications regulator and figure out if they have a specific plan on how they want to go about the IPO, agree on a date for the first day of trading, publish financial statements on our website and other filings and see if any rules or regulations need to be fine-tuned for the specifics for trading on telecommunications companies.
ISX has 84 listed companies with a market capitalisation of about US$3.6 billion (Dh13.22bn). Read more : http://www.thenational.ae/business/telecoms/asiacell-to-trade-on-isx-next-month
9-14-2012 Deborah L: Yes, the dinar will revalue. Atrocities happening 24/7. This latest one is despicable, as are all atrocities. But let's not start with the "woe is me" stuff, and make it about us, or about the RV.
We live in extreme times. None of us are born now by accident. Let's not lose sight of what's important. And let's also not stick our thumbs in our mouths about the RV. It will happen when it's time for it to happen.
9-14-2012 Med: I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THE RATE COMING OUT THE DOOR AND IT WILL DEPEND ON IF THEY ARE IN A BASKET OR A FLOAT. TO ME A BASKET WILL BE MUCH SMARTER AND MORE STABLE ESPECIALLY UNDER THE CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES
IF SO I EXPECT THEM TO COME OUT BETWEEN .10 AND .35. SHABIBI HAS TO TEST THE WATERS IF HE IS REALLY CONFIDENT AND BELIEVES THE OIL IS ENOUGH PLUS HIS ASSETS THEN MAYBE THE .86. THIS TO ME DEPENDS JUST HOW SERIOUS THE IMF AND WTO WERE IN PUSHING IRAQ ON LINE WITH A EVEN RATE WITH THE USD.
