12/05/2022   Economy News-Baghdad

 

The economic expert, Mahmoud Dagher, explained the economic feasibility of the project to delete zeros from the Iraqi currency, which is frequent in political and economic circles from time to time, especially in times of inflation.

 

Dagher said to “Economy News”, that “removing zeros does not change the level of inflation because it does not change the money supply or securities,” adding that “the state will have to spend money to print a currency equivalent to the replaced currency.”

 

On ways to preserve money during inflation in the markets, Dagher advised capital owners to “invest in fixed assets that are not subject to commercial circulation, such as gold, real estate and fixed assets to keep money from eroding during price increases.”   LINK

DeepWoodz:  Imo….Cmon MM!! Run this through your translator for us! This is right up your alley! Imo

 

MilitiaMan:  I have had to reboot the translator mechanism.. lol The looks of this they need to reboot their time machine. Yesterday they told us the voted on the Emergency Food Law then later in the day the told us they were going to do that on Saturday.

 

Now this tells us that today, Thursday is Saturday.. lol What is good about it though is we expected there to be meetings today with Sadr, Finance Minister and CBI Governor. This is not just getting started, they have the system ready to go and todays meeting is about the process of initiation of implementation of the system. They will be consistent with international programs and systems.

 

With all we know the automation of the borders, the AYSCUDA SYSTEM, the BUNA PLATFORM, ISO20022, deletion of the zeros project, etc., we can see there is far more progress in the white paper programs than ever before..

 

The CBI papers show they already printed currency for the project over about a 8 month span going into late August 2018 to the tune of over $500 million USD, equivalence. So it is not surprising that we see the big hitters having a meeting on implementation over advanced internationally acceptable systems to monitor the money flow.. All nice and transparent…

 

Oh yah.. I like what we are seeing.. ~ MM

In early 2022, Iraq announced its removal from the European Union’s list of countries with high risks in the areas of combating money laundering and terrorist financing.  (No risk) imo ~ MM

 

On the other hand, Al-Zubaidi revealed the start of work on the electronic link between the customs authorities and the ports to exchange documents and approvals issued by other departments, which are approved in the completion of customs transactions to clear imported goods and goods and transport them to the local market.

MilitiaMan:  The law like many will always evolve and for long periods of time. The part of this that may get over looked is that it is rate oriented. Notice they don’t mention it.. They can’t.

 

But, they will. imo Like they said. The Emergency Food Law is “Synonymous” with the 2022 Budget Law. Get ready.. imo ~ MM 05/11/2022

 

Now this guy is also suggesting they didn’t vote on the law and it is postponed until Saturday, yet yesterday they told us earlier that they voted on it in it’s entirety.. Smoke on the water or what? lol ~ MM 05/12/2022

Henig:  Smoke on the water, and fire in the skies.

 

You take a gander at the stock market today–or rather this week? And crypto?

 

Seems like a whole host of “seemingly unrelated things” are maneuvering together toward a flash point, imo.

 

In my very opinionated opinion, there could be more than just this basket happening soon. N/G, if you smell what my opinion’s cookin’.
