Economist: There Is No Justification For The Continued Rise Of The Dollar In Light Of The Recovery In Oil Prices

02/09/2021  Information / Special  Economic expert Wissam Al-Tamimi believes that there is no justification for keeping the dollar high in the local market in light of high oil prices and their recovery, pointing out that the siege of the people must end before the street explodes due to mishandling the citizen’s pension.

Al-Tamimi told “the information”, that “the government went to the poor class to achieve financial gains at its expense, as it resorted to raising the exchange rate of the dollar and tightened customs procedures and fees on goods and goods amid the greed of the merchant who found nothing but raising the price of his goods to the citizen.”

He added that “the government no longer has any justification for continuing to raise the dollar exchange rate in the local markets, especially with the recovery of oil prices and the Basra Light crude exceeded the threshold of $ 60 a barrel.”

And that “the price of a barrel of oil, which exceeded the 60 dollars, is equivalent today to 87 thousand dinars, while the price of oil a year ago recorded the same price in dollars, but it is less valuable in dinars, and the government achieved large revenues at that time and was able to overcome the budget deficit.”

He explained that “the government’s continuation of this approach towards the citizen will make the street explode with anger, as there is no justification for the continuation of the current economic policy.” 25 n
