Greetings, I rarely do updates but wanted to share these articles and news. Look who is promoting the new currency and valuation now, yes Iraq themselves.

These articles come from some very close friends of mine and wanted me to share.

If you recall, Ray and I have shared our comments for months about no changes until ISIS is under control. These articles back that up 100% and makes our sources in Iraq some of the best credible sources anyone can have.

Pack your bags and get ready.

This is so “IN our faces”.

The IMF has told the world that they expect Iraq to re-enter the “market” before the first half of 2016.

Now we have a member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee while speaking about future revenue happen to say “oh, by the way the 1, 5, 10, 20 and 100 IQD notes are going to be distributed during 2016.”
I am like “WOW”. Do we just choose to not believe what we are being told?

It certainly appears to me that they (Iraq, CBI, GOI) intend to change the value of the IQD…I believe, unlike previous years, and I have never liked dates, but in this case the window of opportunity starts January 1, 2016.

buck72801:  Economy  Monday 23 November 2015 | 12:48 | Number of readings: 328 Economist: Central Bank refused to distribution of salaries in dollars “correct decision”

BAGHDAD / … considered the economic expert on behalf of Jamil Antoine, on Monday, the central bank rejected a proposal to the employees’ salaries or part of the distribution of the dollar as a “correct decision”, among that raise the value of the Iraqi dinar against the dollar needs to be other economic steps

TheWoods:   Thanks for asking me to elaborate on my opinion, sorry about the delay, Anyway… I’m saying that the CBI is right. The dinar will NOT go up in value, if they disperse salaries in dollars. Iraqi’s prefer dollars now, and they are trying to get away from that.

Not to mention, to be “sovereign” they can’t use (WB or IMF guidelines, i forget which one) dual currencies, except for oil & remittances, if they are to be a part of that/those organizations… And the “Other steps” they speak of, we all know what they should & will Be – Lord willing!            imho  😮 not so humble huh???

“we have a national currency and the distribution of the dollar affects the sovereignty of the country and will create many distortions in the market and will face accountants, bankers have great difficulty Regardless salaries. ”

Stevel:  This is a very good thing. We all want Iraq to use their own currency. If they switch to the USD, then we would have some or many concerns.

The people are sick and tired of hearing about how great their currency is going to be but yet still nothing is done about it, yet! I love the yet. The yet is next.  Have a safe Thanksgiving and enjoy your travels.  Blessings,   Steve
