Harambe: Reuters: Iraq parliament approves budget ending weeks of deadlock (1/23/19)
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq’s parliament approved the 2019 budget early on Thursday after an hours-long vote, ending weeks of deadlock over allocations to different provinces and privatization of state projects.
Parliament did not vote as planned on three cabinet posts that remain empty, however, leaving Iraq with an incomplete government months after a general election.
The budget projected oil exports of 3.88 million barrels per day, up from 3.8 million bpd for the previous year, at a price of $56 per barrel, an increase from the $46 the 2018 budget was based on.

My Top 7 Disagreements With Personal Finance Experts
By GUEST AUTHOR - Last updated JANUARY 23, 2017
[Hey guys! Have a feisty one for you today from fellow blogger ERN at EarlyRetirementNow.com. Some of these you may disagree with, as do I (no emergency fund? Blasphemy! ;)) BUT I always love hearing other peoples’ perspectives, and Ern here can surely put up a convincing fight. Regardless of where you stand though, I hope you’ll find some takeaways here to help you in your own journey.]
As members of the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) community, we are all nonconformist. We scoff at conspicuous consumption of our neighbors in their full-size SUVs and McMansions, and instead budget with a very sharp pencil (spreadsheets are fine, too) and grow our stealth wealth, one dollar at a time.

Frank26: WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT THE BUDGET ON YOUR LAST 3 CC'S?.............
HENCE WHY I NO NEED TO SAY ANYTHING ............... "TODAY".
JJimmyJJ: I can't remember them EVER working with the kind of urgency they showed during their orchestrated "show" they put on today. It almost seems like they're getting ready to announce something to the unwashed masses. It is fantastic that this isn't being reserved only for the special kids any longer. Thanks for keeping us sane and letting us know what they were telling the special kids, Frank!
Wealth & Income Are Not The Same
Hillary Hoffower Jan. 19, 2019
A woman who studied 600 millionaires says there's a misconception about wealth that just won't die
Wealth does not equal income, but people often mistakenly think they're the same thing.
Wealth is the net worth of a household, whereas income is what's reported on an income tax return.
Being rich isn't about how much money you make or spend — it's about how much money you keep.

JCP: Talked to my source who has really good cbi contacts....they said they definitely want this done before February 1sr...we shall see…. They definitely are ready to go
Pollysue: was talking to a young man last night and we started taking about banking , money and such. If you ask a bank personal about something that you know is coming out like new bills, they say they are not sure , or they have no idea about it.
I remember when they were bring back the 2 dollar bill, I went in to the bank and asked not just one of the banker but 3 bankers they said they had no idea if there was a new 2 dollar bill coming out.
Later that week there it was at the bank the new 2 dollar bills. He said it is still that way today.
They the bankers have to just agree with or say nothing to keep people from becoming upset

JJonesmx: 3 January 2019 Iraqi customs duties and import taxes to be enforced
The Iraqi customs authorities have announced that, effective 1 January 2019, they will start enforcing the levy and collection of customs duties and import taxes that are applicable to goods imported by state departments, the public sector, the mixed sector, civil organizations, and private parties. Link
Hammy14: Hmmmm, effective January 1, 2019, they will start enforcing the levy and collection of customs duties and import taxes that are applicable.... but, how can this be at a program rate? How can the citizens afford to pay a tax on goods and services when their money is practically worthless to begin with? Apparently, this is happening and apparently it can be done at a program rate. I don't understand it, but there you have it. I wonder how many more things they will continue to do at a program rate? It just doesn't make sense, IMO.
DELTA: CITIZENS WILL NOT SEE THE CHANGE ON PRICES RIGHT AWAY IT WILL TAKE AT LEAST A MONTH OR SO TO REFLECT THE INCREASE ON THE MARKET.... BY THEN IT WILL BE A HISTORY (wink) imo
Frank26: ANCIENT HISTORY ......................(wink)
