MilitiaMan:  FINAL ARTICLE #280:

“The economist Ahmed Al-Salami wrote an explanation about some countries deleting zeros from their currency and the possibility of applying them in Iraq, while referring to the possibility of making the Iraqi currency strong and has global demand, in what he described as the free dinar.

“Iran will soon delete four zeros from its currency and convert it from the riyal to the new toman officially and have completed the legal series for that, and at that time it will be 100 dollars equal to 300 toman only instead of 3 million tomans or 30 million riyals,” Al-Salami said in a clarification received by “Yes Iraq.” .

MilitiaMan:  A common thought is from a respected Journal is:” that important beneficial effects of currency unions come through the promotion of trade.” ~ MM

MilitiaMan:  Something to think about is that the FA #280 is talking about the Deletion of Zeros for Iran and Strengthening the IQD and then in #283 we see talk of the Reform Papers.

The common denominator here is that Iraq and Iran are in the news of recent talking about having similar objectives and that is banking measures. The timing of this is by no coincidence imo..

We see the White Papers are today issued accordingly. We wait and see the details within them. I’ll bet the world is watching.. lol imo They know from all that Iraq has spoken about of late and in DC.. Game on! imo ~ MM

Governor of the Central Bank: We are determined to implement the reform plan to promote the work of the banking sector

“” Depletion of foreign currency to buy the most insignificant commodities and deplete the cash balance, instead of facilitating official and accounting transactions, packages, storage, transportation, use of versatile metal change and revolutionary digital currency through cards and gain confidence internally and externally, needs a revival, stimulation and progress in this aspect, easy projects that are waiting for their hero, below. Conceptual models for the deleted Iraqi currency, the “free dinar” zeros.” LINK
