Suzie:  We’re getting all kinds of good news about the rate change coming soon, Iraqis’ hold onto your dinars for the new value,  etc., etc., but we’re heading into May,,, EID over, no pictures of the nscn’s yet and companies pouring into Iraq to do business, but I’d like to know why and how companies would pour into Iraq IF they didn’t know what the dinar’s going to be worth??

Just a question, in MY opinion, because if I was a contractor and bidding on jobs I would want to know my costs and how and what I’m  going to be paid going into it or why would I want to do business?

So…do they know something we don’t, or…, just askin’ as it seems to me as far as they’ve come based on all the info we’ve gotten, they could do the 1 to 1 with the stroke of a pen if they’re really in that big a hurry to join the international world as they say they are.

There is no escape for accurate standard equations in applying monetary policy tools and their operational objectives, within the framework of managing the liquidity of the economy in a balanced manner with macroeconomic indicators, and in a manner consistent with the independence of the Central Bank of Iraq.LINK



Frank26  [Iraq boots-on-the-ground report]  FIREFLY:  Something is about to pop…it has to.  After EID we expect some changes to the current rate.  To more like 1000 to 1…  FRANK:  Pay attention to   your prime minister.  He is trying very hard to tell you your currency is at 1.5 to the American dollar.  It is possible they may start the float at 1 to 1.5 instead of 1 to 1.

yada   The parallel rate…is the rate that the street operated at. For a long time, the street rate charged higher rates for dollars that were purchased by dinar. The CBI rate is the official rate and there was a variance between the two.  Since the official currency in Iraq is now the dollar [dinar ?] and illegal to use dollars, the street vendors are forced to play fair or use the same rate as the CBI…the parallel rate is flattened in Kurdistan whom always operated at a higher standard than Baghdad.   Now the rate will go international and that is what we’ve been awaiting
