Quote from Kaperoni: “Sandy needs to read the IMF documents where they specifically talk about Iraq floating the currency.” The IMF will always talk about floating the currency, particularly with emerging economies that have financial issues. Flotation is the only way to establish a realistic rate of exchange, it was the IMF that coerced Egypt into a flotation that resulted in a 50% devaluation. I would agree with most of what you say but you are wrong to make out a float would lead to some benefit, it is not a given.
