Adminbill: IT IS MY OPINION THAT WE WILL NEVER GET A PRESET TIME FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.
AS I HAVE SAID IN THE PAST. ONCE EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SATISFACTORILY COMPLETED THE AUTHORIZATION WILL BE IMMEDIATE AND WITHOUT HESITATION.
GURU'S, BANKERS, BUSINESSMAN AND POLITICIANS WILL BE AS SHOCKED AS WE WILL BE.
IT IS CLOSE BASED ON WHAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD. DO NOT BE OVERLY CONCERNED THAT IT HAS NOT HAPPENED.
YOU WILL KNOW IT VERY SOON AFTER I DO IF I THAT IS A POSSIBILITY.
rcookie So much revealed today from wb & imf...all this development loan money from international agencies... not going to be funneled through same corrupt iraqi banking and ministries...
This is exactly why the banking reforms and supervision mandates were directed in the imf loi [Letter of Intent]...and why the un monitoring panel is there to make sure the budget allocations and disbursements are executed in full...
Remember the 2 state banks were owned by the finance ministry...which is why all of the corruption and failed development projects were facilitated for so long..
So as i have stated before there is an absolutely huge initiative toward economic & financial literacy going on at every level...
cbi...finance ministry with wb/imf metac workshops...
gov't/islamic/private/commercial banks individualized process & services training for employees and managers...
and finally at consumer level through education on banking services...bonds and newly announced isx training & education forums & workshops...

MyEyesAdoredYou: I was happy to hear from him (Art) since he was on the call earlier today and it sounded like 6pm Central was the go time. He just came into Open Mic around 6:55pm Central and said we're still on for tonite.
AJM: here's what Art said: We believe the 800#s will come out around 4:30 pm PST -- 7:30 EST ... But anytime before midnight EST is acceptable.
Cheffypoo333: Everyone on Om is feeling tonight is the night...and apparently Art just came in earlier ( I missed that part) and said his final goodbyes....wow!!!

WASHINGTON — Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew says he is getting closer to announcing a decision on who will be the first woman on U.S. paper currency in more than a century. He says even though the woman selected will go on the $10 bill, Alexander Hamilton will still be honored.
"Alexander Hamilton is one of my heroes. He's not leaving our money," Lew says in an interview broadcast Tuesday on the "Charlie Rose" program.
Hamilton is currently on the $10 bill and his supporters, including new fans attracted by the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton," have mounted a lobbying campaign to convince Lew not to dislodge Hamilton's portrait from the $10 bill.
Lew did not say how he planned to honor Hamilton as part of his plan to modernize the nation's currency.
But he said that the $10 bill was just the first in a series of bills that will be redesigned as part of the government's effort to keep U.S. currency safe from counterfeiting.
He said there were also plans to redesign the $5 bill and the $20 bill. Some Hamilton supporters have suggested that instead of replacing Hamilton, the nation's first Treasury secretary, as the portrait on the $10 bill, Andrew Jackson should be removed from the $20 bill.
But Lew said he needed to follow the sequence that has been established by government experts for the redesign program.
"We have to value security in our currency. So, we're going to have to do this in the order that bills need to be modernized to be safe from counterfeiting," Lew said in the interview broadcast by PBS.
When Lew announced last June that he was going to put a woman on the $10 bill, he asked for suggestions about which woman should be selected and also proposals on how the currency should be redesigned, sparking quite a debate.
The decision was scheduled to be announced by the end of last year, but the decision was postponed to give Treasury time to process all the responses.
"We've gotten millions of responses. We're getting close," Lew said. "We're going to announce it soon."
Lew said that while the debate has focused on the portrait, the redesign would go much further and include the buildings and monuments depicted on the reverse side of the bills as well.
"This is not just about one square inch of one bill," Lew said. "We're looking at how do we take these buildings that are on the back of our bills and bring them to life."
Lew was lobbied about the currency redesign earlier this month by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the author and star of "Hamilton," during a meeting at Treasury. After their discussion, Miranda tweeted that Lew had assured him "you're going to be very happy" with the decision.
Treasury said in a statement that Lew had given Miranda a brief tour of Treasury that included viewing some of Hamilton's possessions and the portrait of Hamilton that hangs in Lew's office.
