Tishwash:  Reform or austerity?

It became clear that the government decided to pursue a policy of austerity reform to meet the major challenges caused by the financial crisis that is ravaging the country, a measure (the last ironing treatment) taken by states in case of running out of all means to meet the challenges beyond their capabilities. austerity whatever the justifications.

It is useful to refer to the warnings we have given in two previous articles:

I focused on activating the productive sectors and the need to control the management of public finances, but unfortunately did not heed the warnings. Here is a shared responsibility borne by all concerned parties and those affected by these austerity measures, the government is required to control the price implications and control the market and punish the vulnerable people of monopolists, especially those related to the food and pharmaceutical basket.

The second order, which comes with the same importance, is the honorable position of our honorable traders to cut off the way to the manipulators in price, and to prove their patriotism and humanity until the evacuation of this crisis, God willing, by putting reasonable profit margins and declaring the pricing in public for the regulatory authorities to carry out their duties in accordance with justice. The law. Our circumstance here is the distinction between what is essential and ideal, with the certainty that our citizen understands the general situation and believes in the de facto policy that was dictated at this critical stage.

In view of this supportive and honorable position by the citizen to support the decisions that are supposed to be to meet the challenges regardless of the causes and causes, the government should not raise the welfare of the citizen, and we remind the Ministry of Finance, which has increased the good salaries of some state employees, that the only achievement achieved after the stage of change in the year (2003) is to improve the standard of living of citizens of the wealth and wealth of their country, and none of them touches on this only achievement from the memory of Iraqis.

In this regard, we propose that deductions should be from the salaries of employees and retirees. When the government succeeds in managing the public money in the future to spread the welfare of all the people, it is the noblest goal and the highest objectives, namely, to enjoy the wealth of the country, not to waste it and leave it in a hand that does not improve its disposal.   link
