Posted: October 22, 2011

The decision of the zeros of a broad debate between supporters and opponents .. We wish a broader debate in the universities and the Council of Representatives and the rest of the institutions … But an explanation of the picture, audio, and cardboard to create the public to this process. However, the phenomenon of health Valenqashat to mature opinion.

Especially with the availability of all information, such as money supply and the number of banknotes, exchange rates and others. When available the basic information of any file, the debate becomes positive, and not just rumors and controversies in the headlines of newspapers and news bar.

objections to the process of canceling zeros addressed potential fraud. She cited the changing currency (15/10/2003- 01/15/2004), which – and the short term – marred by stampedes and no doubt some of the acts of fraud, although that process has allowed them to achieve many things ..

1 – the single currency instead of major currencies, then the dinar Swiss and Saddam dinars and the dollar .. Other than worn in certain areas Kaltoman Iranian and the Turkish lira and the Jordanian dinar.

2 – allowed the single currency to organize a successful monetary policy of the Central Bank in difficult circumstances .. Iraq reserves raised from zero to reach 58 billion U.S. dollars a day ..

Report from the American Contractor October 24th 2011

The Iraqi Minister of Oil recently announced that Iraq had
increased their oil output to 2.9 million barrels a day. However,
that figure is exaggerated. Iraq only exported 2.2 million barrels
a day due to the limitations of the infrastructure. Iraq is hoping
to reach 3 million barrels a day in out put oil production by the
end of the month. This remains to be seen as going from 2.9 to 3
million barrels a day in output capacity with the current
limitations will be difficult. In any case, this is a milestone for

The Troops here in Iraq are definitely leaving at the end of the
year and with this goes the hundreds of millions of dollars the
troops or the US government brought to Iraq. This will have a
lasting effect on the Iraqi economy. This scenario could be short
lived if the Iraqi government can acquire foreign investments. The
Iraqi government will now have to find the funds to fill the void.

After numerous meetings and consulting with various entities the
consensus is that there will not be any movement with the Iraqi
Dinar currency. The Iraq currency reform report will not commence
this year as the Iraqi parliament will not schedule this for
discussions.  This remains in the hands of the Council of
Ministries who have already reviewed the currency reform report
courtesy of Governor Sinan al-Shabibi. In addition, the Currency
Reform report has also been reviewed by a committee that has been
set up by the Iraqi Parliament. There will be no action taken this
year as more debates and discussions are continuing with the
government and private enterprise. This is the reason for the
continued articles in the media referencing the same facts over and
over. The Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) continues to move at a snails
pace when it comes to removing the 25k notes from circulation and
at such time will be replacing those denominations with another
newer Iraqi currency. There are six new denominations being
considered and when the decision is finalized they will be printed.
Many claim this is premature as the Iraqi Parliament, Council of
Ministries and the legal department are still reviewing and
debating the Central Bank of Iraq Currency Reform report.

The Iraqi Parliament did accomplish one major goal and that is the
appointment of the new Ministry of Electricity, Abd Al-Karim Aftan.
The appointment of this new Minister casts doubt on Iyad Allawi who
is showing to be less relevant in the political process. Al-Karim
Aftan is from the al-Hal Party which is a small faction of the
Iraqi National Movement. The new Electricity Minister also has a
brother who is the Minister of Industry. You can count on both
brothers to be supportive of PM Maliki which will enforce his  grip
of power. PM Maliki is also looking forward to completing his
second term and possibly a third.

Prime Minister Maliki does not want the U.S. Troops to remain past
the agreed deadline of 31 Dec. If he didn't voice this he would
lose all support from the same political groups that are keeping
him in his position as Prime Minister.

The Kuwaiti government is continuing with the construction of their
new port of Mubarak despite the Iraqi government politicians
opposition. The only Iraqi government officials who currently have
no problems with the new Kuwaiti port is Prime Minister Maliki and
the Ministry of foreign Affairs Zebari. But rumor has it that
 Zebari has been accepting gifts from the Kuwaiti government. The
Kuwaiti government gave Zebari the gifts in exchange for his
influence in continuing with the Kuwait Port of Mubarak. This is
not the good economic partnership for both the Iraqi new Port and
the Kuwaiti Port of Mubarak that you're led to believe. The fact is
that it blocks the shipping lanes and makes navigation to the Iraqi
port very difficult.

A talk show host recently reported that Iran was a third world
country and that they have no money. I was astonished at this claim
because this host is supposedly an expert on Iraq, or so he claims.
In regards to Iran, the GDP of Iran is almost 900 billion dollars.
Now, compare this to Iraq which is barely 110 billion dollars.
Clearly, Iran is far from being broke. When you hear these
different reports from these various hosts on different topics
please fact check or verify them. If this reporter was so educated
on the topic of Iran then he would've known that Iran and Turkey
have already traded 15 billion dollars in the first 8 months of

Editorial: Where is the problem in deleting three zeros from the Iraqi dinar?

Posted: October 20, 2011

11-10-2011 | (Voice of Iraq)
I had mentioned in a previous article on the following link:

Entitled “Iraqi dinar between the present and future,”

To the need to move forward with the project important cash of deleting three zeros from the Danarena Iraq, and it is encouraging that the Central Bank of Iraq seems serious and determined to move forward with this matter after a thorough study of the consequences of this action on the Iraqi market and the strength of the currency of Iraq and then provide proposed to the House of Representatives for decision and ratification and adoption, has been described in my previous article above that benefits the great return to the status of the Iraqi dinar and the strength and credibility after the adoption of this procedure is important cash, and of curbing inflation in the local market in Iraq and facilitate the handling of cash and financial transactions Iraqi and restored (prestige), the Iraqi dinar and the reduction of the magnitude of the current Iraqi mass cash and the reduction of the phenomenon (dollarization) that still dominate the large cash transactions in the current Iraqi market.

But very happy people do not realize, and every idea is supported by opposed, and both teams have reasonable arguments in this regard. So, I would like to touch on in this article to the “health” of the views of opposition to the adoption of this procedure is important that I consider myself an enthusiastic supporter of him and his defenders. I would like to touch on in this article for some of the arguments of opponents of this idea in good faith (the arguments of ill-intentioned opponents of each idea that optimization of the Iraqi reality a little or a lot, there is no need to discuss it because those are not the benefit of discussion with them already, you will not accept you. “Baathists and Salafis” until you follow their religion), with a pink profile on each of the points which I will address below:

Opponents of this idea that the process of improving the Iraqi economy and the fight against inflation should be made ​​through the plans and development projects, real for the advancement of industry and agriculture of Iraq and the service sector (semi-inactivated we have in today’s Iraq), etc., and not just “Vzlkh” delete three zeros from the Iraqi currency current . The Japanese do not see the need to remove two zeros from the yen exchange rate to become comparable to the U.S. dollar, and Zimbabwe did not stop the inflation did not satisfy people hungry after that removed six zeros from its currency.

Who said that originally dropped three zeros from the currency obviates the need to develop plans and projects to promote the real development actually the Iraqi economy? The deletion of three zeros is the process will work to reduce the magnitude of the cash block traded and thus facilitate the deal the state and citizens with financial transactions and large amounts of cash and to remind the Iraqis psychologically past (bright) to Danarhm Iraq, which is not a substitute for nor preclude the necessity advancement of the Iraqi economy through other means, which is understood by economists.

Opponents say that the process of deleting three zeros will lead to breakdowns and confusion in the local market and the spread of the phenomenon of “monetary illusion” because of the existence of “two currencies” old and new traders and would play into the prices of goods and commodities.

This speech, Ward and possible if the process of converting to numbers is regular (as happened when the transition from the Deutsche mark or French franc, for example to the euro exchange rate of fractional complex), exploited merchants of this calculation to raise prices and gain higher money at the expense of the citizens, but in the Iraq operation is is just (remove / add) three zeros to convert between the expense of the Iraqi dinar old and new, and does not require any complex financial calculation, to distinguish between the price of the commodity business and the old dinar dinar new price. I do not think that there is one in Iraq today is capable of hitting any number divided by a thousand or a thousand in less than one second!

Opponents say that the process of replacing the currency will lead to the occurrence of chaos in the street because the Iraqi people stand in queues at the gates of new banks to replace the current Iraqi banknotes with those of the new banknotes. And established the phenomenon of black market speculators, taking advantage of the chaos that would arise from a changing of the currency.

This will not happen again. The process of standing in queues at the gates of the banks to replace the currency occurred during the revolution of July 14, 1958 to replace the currency in the currency of the new republic property. In our case, the contemporary of this, there will be a “transitional period” determined by the Central Bank of Iraq a few years, in which both currencies old and new two windows, while the central bank gradually to absorb the currency notes of old pump leaves the new currency to the market, just like what happened in the European countries decided to join the currency “euro”. To this day, in the Czech Republic, for example, still crown the Czech currency, the euro both of two windows and the prices are written with both currencies (although the calculation of complex unlike the case of Iraq), while the ultimate goal is to get rid of the crown of the Czech and the adoption of the euro currency in full at the end in 2012 .

Some opponents say that the idea was good in the basis that the timing is not appropriate because of the recession and widespread unemployment, a process that would cost the state large sums of money to print a new currency.

Economic recession and the concept of relative not absolute. Even the richest countries in the world and the most freedom and development, such as Japan and the United States complain press is always a recession or depression by comparison with the previous figures for subjects of comparison and of the complaint, while proud of the media’s totalitarian state Stalinism of its people hungry and the slave, such as North Korea’s economic prosperity under the leadership of the “party”, for example. Thus, there is no clear definition of the parameters we have to decide which is absolutely good that the economic situation has become a favorable time to take this step. And my view that the timing is very appropriate now, and can not be regarded as the Iraqi economy today, “stagnant” or “Kassado” compared with the phase of the unjust economic blockade, which ended the fall of the idol and liberate Iraq from the grip of the former regime.

The question should be printing a new currency (and being a costly operation), they are of a necessity (as I mentioned in my previous article on the link above), an opportunity to hit several birds with one stone, some of which get rid of those three zeros unpleasant, including normalize currency of the latest and the most beautiful and the benefits of stronger security and more, including work on the introduction of the Kurdish language (the second official language of the Republic of Iraq) on the paper money as we did in the passports, and other government documents.

Whatever the cost of printing the new currency security features more powerful and disobedience to the fraud (with interest accruing to the state and its currency in the long run), it is less than the cost incurred by the state because of the fraud the current Iraqi currency (and in particular the category of 10 thousand dinars to be the largest value and easier to fraud class of 25 thousand dinars), and the Central Bank of Iraq was already in all cases that prints banknotes for the new pump in the domestic market, either with or without the three zeros, this is the main function.

At which point the most important and most sensitive at all, with opponents saying that the counterfeiters and (mafias) money laundering and smugglers of currency will take advantage of the new situation in the “wash” of Iraqi dinars old forged and replaced by new or the smuggling of Iraqi dinars a real out of the country for the purposes of terrorism and organized crime, it which will lead to lethality economic security of Iraq.

As I noted above, the replacement process will not be immediate, but will gradually transition over a certain period of years determined by the Central Bank of Iraq. If counterfeiters can use the current Iraqi Dnanaarham counterfeit in the Iraqi market, local damage is already existing and will not appear after the launch of the new currency, and the phenomenon of counterfeiting is a phenomenon found in all the countries of the world. It will be the Iraqi currency printed new currency stronger and wiser in terms of security using the latest technologies used in printing currency and banknotes in the printing world specialized and, therefore, put the new currency security features more and more powerful is that would make the process of counterfeiting, money laundering and kill the local economy is more difficult on counterfeiters and black market traders who are in every time and place originally. And not, as opposed to the idea of fear.

As for those who work on the smuggling of the old Iraqi currency, they will lose their validity at all after the end of the transition period to switch between the two currencies, and then leaves will become worthless, and then working on the smuggler currency (Tnqaaha) and drinking its water! It wants to spend from his own pocket to buy Iraqi currency current and out of Iraq to reduce the number of Iraqi dinars traded in the domestic market, and thus increase its value while he keeps stacks of paper the old to make them cushions sleeps, is a person who should thank him for his support of the Iraqi economy, not be afraid of it anyway!

Whatever the concerns above real, including the face in particular, currency smuggling and counterfeiting, money laundering, each state procedures cash to combat these phenomena, as well as with the CBI its own procedures already, and will not be affected by the importance or usefulness of these measures negatively or positively, the process of replacing currency, does not mean the process of replacing the currency and should be abandoned for these precautions, it is meant that work to strengthen and increase the effectiveness and efficiency, it is where the fear then? Where is the problem and gentlemen customers in deleting three zeros from the current Iraqi dinar (consider the many benefits of this process in return)?

So the idea of deleting three zeros from the Iraqi dinar current idea of a good and necessary in my opinion and benefits than disadvantages and must move forward through as soon as possible (taking into account the reasonableness of the two periods preparatory and transitional), a matter of time is a must, and God knows what is right anyway.

Supplement to the article

The denominations of the Iraqi dinar current (and future old) are as follows:

Mineral groups: no (was introduced two categories of 25 and 100 dinars in the year 2004, but it did not work was withdrawn from the market in 2008).

Categories of paper: 50 dinars (become little use today because of high prices and lack of value), 250 dinars, 500 dinars, 1000 dinars .5000 dinars, 10,000 dinars 0.25000 dinars (which is the highest denomination of the Iraqi dinar, is currently not sufficient to manage the enormous mass of cash from Dnanerna Iraq now, they are not equivalent to only $ 21).

I suggest (and I expect) to become denominations of the new Iraqi dinars (current and future) are as follows:

Mineral groups: 50 fils, 100 fils, quarter of a dinar, half dinar, one dinar (like the old days).

Categories of paper: 5, JD 10, JD 25 JD 0.50 dinars (perhaps 100 dinars, not to be in circulation in the local market, such as the 50 dinars, because the class of the JD 100 is also working to facilitate spending and rising inflation), and must be groups of 25, 50, 100 dinars printed on paper security features are very strong to prevent fraud, as are those security features followed in most world currencies currently (see class 20 or £ 50 as an example of the security features powerful and anti-fraud, but if the O rings fraud and money laundering we have in Iraq, “Ohtr” than in Britain, and that is not my belief).

Related: inflation is unlikely because the control of the central bank currency

Posted: October 10, 2011 

He specializes in economic affairs Dargham Muhammad Ali, that the volume of currency in circulation in the local market is (4) trillion dinars is controlled by a

central bank and this prevents the inflation for next year, noting that most of the ministries of the State does not need to the degree of functional and she is

suffering from sagging career, which would negatively affect the investment budget and fully reflected in the Iraqi economy.

The Muhammad Ali in a statement to the Contact Agency (news) on Monday: “The issue of inflation is unlikely in the coming months due to the control of the

central bank currency in the local market, which amounted to (4) trillion dinars and through his control also on the exchange rate which is the scale determines

the price of goods imported from abroad and mass of cash in the marketplace. “

He pointed out: The Central Bank is working to absorb the Iraqi dinar by offering more than the dollar Through the use of tools the interest rate that can control

this issue, which will make the Iraqi citizen saves his money instead of spending and this works to withdraw currency from the market.

and saw Muhammad Ali said that most government ministries do not need to degrees of functional and she is suffering from sagging career and thus will

increase in the operational expenditure at the expense of development and investment, which reflected negatively on the economy of the country.

is noteworthy that the Iraqi economy has seen serious inflation is unprecedented on the basis of all press reports and a summary of seminars and economic

studies on this aspect as well as the concrete facts on the ground has decreased the real value of money in the Iraqi market is strikingly, no longer in large

quantities sufficient for the purchase of a commodity or service is simple, so are the follow-up to increase prices of goods and services in Iraq to assess the

rates process fraught with difficulties, due to the continuous increase in prices

Continuing controversy over the deletion of zeros from the currency

varied views of a number of experts and specialists in economic affairs in the process of deletion of zeros and replace the Iraqi currency, between a pro her

shows split most of the opinions of those interviewed (morning), while some see the importance that the central bank’s the application of fiscal policy without

confusion and as planned, others to seek central to the study of intensive and extensive process, which they said: It may not benefit the national economy

with something, and the number of experts pointed out that the application of the process of removing the zeros can not achieve success desired, but in light

of stable economic conditions, which is not seen Iraq at the moment, according to expert opinion, is that specialists others made ​​clear the importance of the

matter as it confirmed that it can maintain the stability of the dinar on one hand and reducing the mass of cash in the Iraqi market, which is approaching

four trillion paper reviews a the other. is not the time

He sees Dr. Mahdi Al-Hafiz was not the time to begin the implementation process of changing the currency and the deletion of zeros of them, pointing

Speaking (morning) that Iraq inherited a long period of economic instability, as well as passing through the current conditions Garmestqrh are all factors

that do not help in practice to the implementation of plans of large cash like that purports to the Central Bank implemented in the deletion of zeros,

calling for careful implementation of this matter until the stability of economic and political conditions and then consider changing the currency or

re-consider the calculation of the exchange rate.

In response to the opinion of Central Bank of Iraq on the gradual change of the currency in case of deletion of zeros, said Hafiz: Can not determine the

period of time to replace the currency, but after witnessing the national economy stable full  take advantage of the experiences of countries.

While confirming Hafiz not to fit the time with the process of removing the zeros due to instability economic, the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Planning

and Development Cooperation, Dr. ultra Abdul Rasul did not go away from that view when he said that monetary policy in Iraq is confused too … and confusing.

shows the agent during the interview (morning) that this policy is not based on a true understanding of the theory cash in the world based on the concepts

of two basic policies have contractionary and expansionary, adding that the proposal made ​​to Iraq is to adopt a free economy, and therefore everything is

going according to policy, deflationary, and led to the reduction of money supply and thereby raising interest rates and it was born severe pressure on the

possibility of banking facilities, but said Abdul Rasul in return called for a benefit from the experiences of countries that have preceded us in the process

of changing the currency to reduce the mistakes that you may encounter the process, and also said, is not new to Iraq, the process of lifting the zeros from

the currency has preceded us many of the States in that and I think the advantage of experiences of some countries will help the success of the issue which

is important experiments must be taken into consideration ..

the zeros added to strengthen the currency
in turn, considered the economic researcher as Abdul Hadi said the issue of changing the currency and to delete the zeros of which is premature, noting that

everyone knows that the zeros were added to the Iraqi currency as a result of economic weakness, which was suffered by the country, stressing that this

weakness is still present what he called to say: we printed currencies with large groups . He said Abdul Hadi said that if the deletion of zeros, to everyone

that he is certain that the Iraqi economy returned to a much stronger position than it was Accordingly, the opposite of what is going through economic reality now.

He assured the researcher of citizens, which is administered talk about what may accompany the process of removing the zeros, stressing the inability to

exploit it by the weak people, as rumored recently, and that the new currency to be printed is the currency of the same specifications highly difficult to forge

or imitate in any way.

to that supported economic expert on behalf of Jamil Antoine process of deletion of zeros from the currency, stressing the importance of curb what he

called (dollarization) and the frequent use of foreign currencies in the trading day for the local markets, said Antoine that the most prominent is imperative

for Central to change the currency, and to delete the zeros of which is the enormous mass of cash in the local market, estimated at more than four trillion

paper money, asserting that the deletion of zeros will reduce this number to reach after nearly two billion eight hundred million banknotes, explaining that

this process be shortened many of the daily dealings of the coin both in the banks or the rest of the accounting of financial markets or Chierfat especially

that of the Iraqi citizen does not believe in only dealing cash (Cache).

He said the expert also said the process of removing the zeros will enable traders to the currency storage and transport more easily than it is now, is that

the most prominent as possible

The resulting change the currency, according to Antoine is to reduce the trading in cash and raise the value of the dinar, which he said now with great

strength, especially in light of its support with a $ 58 billion is the value of reserves of the CBI

Iraq: $58bn in Currency Reserves, Should Redenominate Soon

Posted: September 6, 2011 by THE CURRENCY NEWSHOUND

The deputy governor of Iraq’s central bank has announced that foreign currency reserves have risen to close to $58 billion, and are expected to increase further thanks to a rise in oil revenues.

Mudher Kasim said higher global oil prices could result in a budget surplus for 2011.

Reuters quotes him as saying, “(The amount of reserves) has gradually increased since the beginning of last year, when it was $40 billion. Now it is close to $58 billion”, while AlsumariaTV puts the opening figure at $50 billion.

Last October, Kasim had put reserves at around $50 billion, with 45 percent held in dollars, 45 percent in euros and 10 percent mainly in gold and British pounds.

Iraq earned $34.1 billion in oil revenue, an increase of $8.7 billion, or 34 percent, over budgeted revenue, in the first five months of this year, Deputy Prime Minister Hussain Al-Shahristani said in June.

The deputy governor said inflation — which quickened to 7.1 percent in July from 6.4 percent in June — was under control but being monitored carefully.

Iraq, battered by years of war and economic sanctions, depends mainly on imports for most goods, including food and building materials.

“If prices continue to increase and the inflation rate approaches two digits, monetary policy tools will be strongly activated to fight inflation,” he said.

Kasim said a plan to take off three zeroes from Iraq’s currency to simplify financial transactions was awaiting parliamentary approval and said the government should approve the project sooner rather than later.
