OOTW: IF YOU READ THE ARTICLE, MR. ABBAS PRETTY MUCH CALLS MOHSEN OUT ON ALLOWING CORRUPT AUCTION PRACTICES – AS PART OF THE PAST REGIMES POLITICAL AGENDA
OOTW: ALTHOUGH THE READ IS ACADEMIC, READING BETWEEN THE LINES IS NOT DIFFICULT
OOTW: IT’S A VERY GOOD READ AND BULLET POINTS THE ISSUES AND THE RECOMMENDED “CURES”
OOTW: ONE POINT HE MENTIONS WHICH IS PARTICULARLY STRONG IS TO MOVE AWAY FROM THE FOREIGN CURRENCY AUCTIONS AND THAT THE STRONG NEED FOR DEPOSITORS INSURANCE
OOTW: AS THE TITLE STATES “BETWEEN COLLAPSE AND ADVANCEMENT” THE CBI IS AT A CRITICAL JUNCTURE
OOTW: HIS ARTICLE IS ADMONISHING AND VERY GOOD AS TO WHAT NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE, FOR ANY AND ALL PEOPLE WHO WANT A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT / WHICH REFORMS ARE NEEDED AT THE CBI (AND THE ENTIRE IRAQI BANKING SYSTEM) – IN ORDER TO SEE POSITIVE, FORWARD MOVEMENT FOR THE ECONOMY AND FOR THOSE INVESTED IN THE COUNTRY

THIS, WITHOUT DOUBT, IN MY MIND, IS CONNECTED TO THE IMF TAKING CONTROL/AIDING THE GOVERNMENT IN INSTITUTING ECONOMIC REFORMS TO PULL THE COUNTRY OUT OF WHAT WOULD INEVITABLY BE AN ECONOMIC DOWN-SPIRAL.
ALLOWED CORRUPTION TO CONTINUE VIA THE AUCTIONS…HAVEN’T SUPPORTED NOR IMPLEMENTED DEPOSITORS INSURANCE –

WE NEED TO SEE INTERVENTION IN THE CBI BANKING PRACTICES AND THIS ARTICLE SEEMS TO ME THAT THIS IS THE INTENTION.
