2020-04-07

The Lebanese MTV channel revealed, today, Tuesday, the US administration’s intention to place the Central Bank of Iraq under supervision for its involvement in withdrawing the dollar illegally, she said.

Currency Manipulation

For more than a decade, some policymakers and analysts have expressed concerns that U.S. exports and
jobs have been harmed by unfair exchange rate policies of other countries (“currency manipulation”).

They argue that other countries have purposefully weakened their currency relative to the dollar to boostexports, at the expense of U.S. firms and workers.

However, there are a number of factors that drive exchange rates, and it is difficult to estimate the extent to which a currency is undervalued, and why it is undervalued.

On April 6, 2020, the rule is to go into effect …

Godlover:  I am guessing this current threat, until they implement the supervision is why we see the CBI changes? Also, I again can only guess this supervision will continue long after the MR (monetary reform)

Walkingstick:  Yes, in part … supervision, by the U.S…. a part of their new mechanism…  Oversight,  by… the U.S. is and will remain in place…..  Regards…..

DELTA:  The response of the Central Bank … is procedural related to its law and not to economic logic … Abdel-Hussein Al-Anbuge

2020-04-07

Books: Prof. Abdul Hussein Al-Anbaki

In fact, I was not going to respond to the central bank, but to clarify the picture in front of the non-specialist reader. As for the specialist, he knows what I meant in my article on inflationary financing,

It is true that I have not worked in the central bank, but I have been a professor of macroeconomics and monetary theory for years, unless the central bank works according to unscientific contexts that are not consistent with what we have studied. Moreover, over the past 15 years I have evaluated and put an opinion on all Central Bank reports that come To the Prime Minister by virtue of my consultative work, just as my article does not care about procedural and administrative matters or how to organize the public (assets and liabilities) and accounting restrictions for the central bank, but rather I talk about monetary policies and focus on the impact of monetary issuance on the overall economy in a recession situation which is the goal of the paper, perhaps Or e explained that the following things:

First: It is not my responsibility if Brother Hussein, an expert at the Central Bank, does not differentiate between issuing a new currency and issuing a new cash, so we are close to economists, and we have the picture as I mentioned in my article.

Second: It is certain that the new and old currency issuance, but that any dinar that is outside the central bank is on the side of the liabilities and the right of the bearer over who issued it, and I do not know why he supplies this axiom, but he issues the money against deposits with the central bank, this is the natural mechanism for controlling the offer Cash is not what is intended in our article, because what is meant in the article is a monetary issuance (exceeding) the requirements for regular money supply, and therefore it is tied to the requirements of monetary policy to influence the overall economy due to a recession crisis so the central bank makes the cash flow greater than the commodity flow, which is greater than Volume of transactions in Lq thereby contributing to inflationary financing of monetary policy with its policy in ridding the financial economy from recession, creating any inflationary pressures by increasing money supply

Third: If the new currency issuance will create inflationary pressures to get the economy out of recession, then how does it say that this measure is not a tool of monetary policy, are not monetary policy tools used for the purposes of restoring economic stability due to its imbalance in crises?

Fourth: If the central bank lends to the government any purchase of its bonds, then it pays a dinar to the government for the value of the loan, and this means that the dead dinar in the central will be revived, which means that the money supply increased, and this means that the cover inevitably expanded and the cover did not shrink, but the effect of the two measures on the economy is the same.

Fifth: It is unfortunate that an economist said that the central bank deducted government bonds in favor of government banks, which in turn discounted them for the benefit of contractors in the previous crisis 2014 according to his law and I do not care about his law. I am talking about the result and impact, and I do not know what the difference is in what I mentioned because the result is an offer Cash is the same. Money is with the public and banks are part of the money supply in its broad sense. As long as bonds are discounted to banks or deducted directly to contractors, the same will lead to the effect of inflationary financing inevitably.

Sixth: The rescue packages that countries made, I also mentioned that it is through the general budgets of these countries, but how the deficit was financed inevitably through the compatibility of an expansionary fiscal policy with an expansionary monetary policy where the central banks sought to issue a cash, so America is now printing $ 3 trillion, and I do not understand why It is presented at the same point in other vocabulary.

Seventh: I would like to refer to my recent book on the exaggerated exchange rate in it … suppression of the local product and support for the importer, which is entirely dependent on the Central Bank data as these data show that the difference between the value of private sector imports that the central bank claims is that the currency sale window was found for it and what He sold him one dollar in that window for the period from 2010-2017, that is, in 8 years, up to 202 billion dollars, which is money in foreign exchange that bled without a commodity import.

Eighth: I would also like to point out that raising the value of the dinar in an imaginary way has created a big difference between its real value and its subsidized value. This difference is a net addition that supports imported goods in a way that exceeds all margins of customs protection to protect the local product in Iraq, which made the central bank with this monetary policy destroying the base Productivity in favor of imports behind millions of unemployed, and Mr. Hussein continues to object to the Central Bank’s call to adopt a strict monetary policy.
