  1. Matthew 7 :: NIV. "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
  2. EXPORTS!!! Iraq signs a memorandum of understanding with three Arab countries for agricultural and commercial cooperation EconomyIraqJordanLebanonSyriaMemorandum Of UnderstandingCommercial Agricultural Cooperation 2023-03-27 03:56Font Shafaq News / Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan signed, on Monday, a quadripartite memorandum of understanding for cooperation in the agricultural field and enhance trade exchange to achieve integration between the four countries. The memorandum includes strengthening and developing cooperation in the agricultural field, both plant and animal, exchanging experiences, information and successful agricultural experiences, and managing reserves and gardens between the four countries. It also included cooperation in the field of fire fighting, climate change, rural development, agricultural extension, production, animal health and veterinary medicines. "The agreement is a starting basis for joint work and cooperation in the agricultural sector on which most Arab peoples depend and provides markets for the disposal of the products of the four countries," Iraqi Minister of Agriculture Abbas Al-Alawi said. Last year, the four ministers held three meetings where a meeting was held in Iraq in February, the second meeting in Lebanon in July, while in September the third meeting was held in Jordan.اقتصـاد/العراق-يوقع-مذكرة-تفاهم-مع-ثلاث-دول-عربية-للتعاون-الزراعي-والتجاري
  3. 3m1, IMO Tamimi is saying there is no need for the creation of coins since currency will be digital, or as you say "numbers on a screen." This statement by Tamini tells me they are revaluing and need smaller denominations: He explains that “coins, being small denominations and forming parts of the large currency, can cover price differences in a flexible manner without loss to the consumer or the seller, and limit the exceptional profits that sellers achieve by selling their cheap goods at higher prices that are compatible with the available currency denominations, for example: The price of a small bottle of water is 135 dinars in wholesale, its price with profit is 175 dinars, but the sale price to the consumer will be 250 dinars, as there is no category smaller than 250 dinars to return to the consumer, so he has to accept this price with one bottle or buy three bottles for 500 dinars even if he is not need it.” I'm not sure there is a stick of gum in Iraq that currently costs 135 dinars.
  4. Thank you. I had been looking for the source of this article. Sounds like a lot of education for the Iraqi people.
  5. I'm sorry you can't see what's happening. It's understandable. But many of us are excited, apprehensive, and anticipating a winning ticket this time. It may take a little while, but nobody will quell my giddiness! Get out your party dresses and wash the car. We are going to be one big party SOON!
  6. EO 13303 along with CPA Regulations and Orders allowed IQD purchase. I don't recall which Reg/Order it was, but I read it about 8-9 years ago. For the curious:
  7. Dinariffic, you are right! And that was the door that opened for us to invest! Let's remember when the US invaded Iraq the Coalition Provision Authority (CPA), Paul Bremer, de-valued the IQD. We then had new IQD printed, distributed, and the Hussein notes were collected and destroyed. The SIGIR report submitted quarterly to Congress presented the conditions in Iraq and stated the IQD would eventually be reinstated to $1.19. A presidential Executive Order was signed that stated it was legal for US citizens to purchase IQD. Looks like people that were around in 2003 and understood the plan for Iraq regionally and economically, realized the plan included banking and governmental reform and included bringing the IQD back to a realistic value. It always pay to have people in control that understand history, process, and long term planning. The last two years have shown us that in actions, results and black and white articles.
  8. Two years ago I was ready to sell my dinar and buy a condo in Mexico. How things have changed in 2 years. I wonder what happened that have revamped Iraq in major ways? I wonder
  9. Yah, you would think President Biden knew something about the ME and Iraq. I'm sure it just coincidental that Iraq has buckled down and started implementing banking reforms demanded by the USA in the past 2 years, the PM and other ministers fly back and forth to DC (to have ice cream?) and things start happening. Kurdistan was told by the USA to conform or "lose out" and sure enough two months later budgets are done, HCL is looking good, etc. Is Iran being good or have they been quelled by the USA? I'm sure all of Iraq's progress was in the works with the last administration but it just took longer because they were working on the new infrastructure plan and a new healthcare plan simultaneously. Bigly hard work! Iraq has never looked so good but I'm sure it's just coincidental.
  10. I'm wondering if anyone has thought about thow he money they invested in IQD would look if they had taken that money and invested in the stock market instead. Let's say you took $1000, maybe 20 years ago, and invested in varied stocks, and then looked at the ups and downs the market has taken over that time, especially 2008, and the days you made money, lost money, and came out even. That's quite a 20 year roller coaster ride. What would you have ended up with at a 20-year $1,000 investment? High risk. High return. It's not for the weak, underfunded, or uneducated investment portfolio.
  11. You can live in the past with a glass half empty, or look to today and tomorrow with a glass half full that's ready to bubble over.
  12. Maybe it's Chase and I have it wrong. My real point is if the US is controlling Iraq's payments to Iran for electricity, I believe we have control on all payments. Thanks, Mally.
