CandyKisses: A competent expert details the economic feasibility of returning to the old dollar exchange rate
Baghdad – NAS
Nabil al-Marsoumi, a professor of economics at Basra University, on Friday detailed the economic feasibility of returning to the old dollar exchange rate.
Al-Marsumi said in a blog post, followed by “Nass”, (October 21, 2022), “The increase in the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar at the beginning of 2021 had a clear impact on the rise in the general level of prices, but it was not the only reason, but there were other reasons, including the Corona pandemic, which led to the closure of the global economy, damage to supply chains, high costs of shipping and transportation, and the state of global drought, which led to a significant increase in food prices as well as high energy prices in the world. The world and the Russo-Ukrainian war that led to a rise in the cost of production in most of the countries of the world that today suffer from inflation and the specter of economic stagnation.”
He added that “Therefore, the quest to reduce the price of the dollar against the dinar by 23% for the purpose of returning it to its previous level will lead to a small reduction in the level of internal prices in Iraq will not exceed 5%, because the rise in the price level was not only related to the change in the exchange rate but was related toa set of factors.”
He continued, “The flexibility of prices in the rise is great but limited in falling, and this is a fact known to all economists, so it is rare to find an Iraqi economist who supports the idea of returning to the old price due to its high costs and disastrous economic results without leading to a significant reduction in prices and improving the lives of the poor.”
“If politicians really care about the poor, they should find jobs for them, by diversifying the economy, developing it, improving services, developing the social protection system, and supporting the private sector instead of morphine with which they try to numb people by deluding them that their problem lies only in raising the exchange rate of the dollar and the solution is to return it to what it was,” he said.
