  1. Finance Bader: Golden increase balance dinar to strengthen its position against global currencies

    BAGHDAD / Mohammed Kazem


    World Gold Council revealed in its report issued by the global demand for gold for that Iraq had bought 24.1 tonnes of gold during 2012. The report noted that the world's central banks raised their purchases of gold over the past year 2012 record levels and the highest level since 48-year-old in 1964. Noting that Iraq, which raise oil production over the past year benefited from oil مداخيله in increasing its gold reserves, where he bought a CBI 24.1 tonnes of gold during 2012. A member of the parliamentary Finance Committee Abdul Hussein al-Yasiri: reserve there in the Central Bank Law old number (64) of 1976 and indicates that the government when issued Iraqi dinar must be covered up 70%, while foreign currency or gold, this law and end it that measured in gold as the precious metals accepted in all countries of the world. The Yasiri told (Badr): the government's drive towards enhancing its gold reserves, strengthen the balance local currency in international banks, the fact that the currency exposed to low from time to time, in order to raise its value against foreign currencies, which collapsed to the lowest levels because of politics clumsy followed by the dictatorial regime in currency printing in large quantities, which caused significant inflation in the Iraqi dinar discredit the international transactions. Yasiri: The reasons that prompted the central bank to talk about the process of strengthening the balance golden dinars aims to raise its position against foreign currencies directly, now the money supply around (34) trillion Iraqi dinars sum, and number limits (3) trillion, according to census coins to the Central Bank and who wishes downward to about a third in the case of high purchasing power and rates of foreign currencies the dollar and the euro and the pound sterling. The annual report for 2012 that «the value of global purchases of gold reached record levels in terms of financial value, reaching 236.5 billion U.S. dollars last year, and the size of 4405.5 tonnes of gold. The report said that consumer purchases of gold declined in the past year, but purchases of central banks and funds offset this decline, where they purchased these banks 534.6 tons of gold in the year as a whole, while the purchases in the fourth quarter of last year alone to 75.6 tons ». Noted analysts gold markets that the main reasons behind the record rise in purchases of central banks back to disorder exchange rate major currencies that make up foreign reserves to the world and fears of a «currency war» this year amid policies key countries in the Group of Seven to reduce the price of currencies to increase the competitiveness of its exports in the international markets. Another reason is due to these purchases analysts standard quantitative stimulus policies implemented by several global central banks led by the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of Japan (BOJ) and the Bank of England. It is known that the quantitative stimulus policies that lead to the deterioration of the exchange rate because it increases the money supply in the market. In this sense, a lot of countries around the world proceeded over the past year gold to hedge against this risk. According to the report of the World Gold Council, the five Arab central banks topped the list of the 40 central banks largest in terms of gold reserves is Saudi Arabia, which reached its gold reserves at the end of last year, 322.9 tons and represents 3.0% of total reserves.

The report noted that the People's Bank of China (China's central bank) was one of the most active central banks buying gold as well as the Russian Central Bank. And reached the Russian central bank purchases over the past year about 75 tons, to bring the possession of gold to 1,000 tonnes, which represents 10% of the total reserves.

  6. Monetary policy and trends in the money supply .. An alternative vision

    07/26/2012 0:00

    D. The appearance of Mohammed

    if the money the Iraqi Central Bank issued and traded a cash basis of base money, which is considered as the liabilities of the central bank capable of generating or creating money by doubling bank credit to form an essential component of money supply, which originates or creates usually by a multiple of bank credit affected by the cash basis (no balance sheet impact of the Central Bank to double credit through open market operations) which confirms that the banks are traditionally creative criticism through the multiplier, but the impact and control of the cash basis of it .. If Masaht this hypothesis, the money supply is an external variable exogenous variable. In other words, will be subject to double credit to the direct effects of the cash basis of the reference interest rate and balance sheet of the Central Bank, which both represent the goals of operational short-term monetary policy operational target which depends indirect means of operations of the open market and facilities-based deposit and lending.

    But, as is typical, and because of unilateral experienced by the Iraqi economy and its dependence on government oil revenues which amount to about 97 percent of inflows to the country's foreign currency of such proceeds shall be approximately 90 percent of the revenues of the federal budget at the exception of loans and debt different. As about 60 percent or less of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In the absence of other flows, especially the private sector in foreign currency which does not pose any importance, it has become the country co-exist really on the resource state the first of the oil revenues, the mechanism that created the interlinked strong influence between the components of View Cash and undergoing factors of the demand for cash, as it has become the components of money supply and in particular the currency in circulation outside the central bank and currency reserves in the banks of the internal variables endogenous variable affected by macroeconomic variables fundamental, in particular GDP and the oil from it in particular to make the money supply variable internally as we noted that the liquidity of the economy they have to create and magnified through the release in cash after the swap central bank money as liabilities in foreign currency purchased from the government as assets within the balance sheet of the Central Bank. a so-by the nutrition feedback positive positive feedback-

    and the creation of money through multiple credit has become today in the weakest point in the history of the country's monetary and that this multiplier credit is currently only at best (one) only slightly, which indicates match money supply with the cash basis.

    as the monetary system in Iraq, particularly the system of exchange rates, which represents the rate of exchange in which the external value of money, and because of the correlation between oil revenues and foreign currency monetary issuance (after those returns that turned in large part to foreign reserves, the monetary authority), the system of exchange rates may change gradually over the floating exchange rate system to the drainage system is very persistent .. Stating again that the double bank credit equal to one and issued currency which is similar to the money supply eventually become covered with foreign currency by 100 percent or more, according to the exchange rate and change throughout the last term. And despite the fact that open market operations through the auction of foreign currency to influence the levels of liquidity and stability across the mechanism of sterilization is very high, but it can not have happen vacuum cash in Iraqi dinars are in any case all Matzhbh of liquidity Iraqi dinar remains less than the size of monetary issuance, although the severity of the intervention of the central bank in the money market no central market for buying and selling foreign currency, which is one of the largest markets, leading to the money market, because the government continues to fuel purchases of the dinar traded through the foreign currency at its disposal to meet the needs of the public budget. So to be criticized, the source continues to trade internally regardless of the auction sales in foreign currency and sterilization processes and absorption of liquidity.

    Thus, the currency in circulation outside banks, which along with cash in the coffers of banks important part of the cash basis remains weak in the generation and creation of money (money supply) through multiple credit, especially if Malahzna high surpluses in the coffers of the banks or current accounts with the Central Bank confirmed that the conservative nature of banks in credit expansion because of the monetary conditions of the country's current and potential for quick profit secured from risk by participating in an auction of foreign currency .. Taking into account that the local currency in circulation outside the banks is the other leak externally weakens the ability to create money amounting to rate nearly 70 percent of the money supply tight (consisting of currency in circulation outside banks and current deposits of public banks) and in any case all of the cash deposits in banks various forms is the excess liquidity in their vaults and Atkarz only in a narrow range even loaned really they are Atold double credit significantly often in the creation of money or generate money supply.

    On the basis of the above, the drainage system in Iraq, or the monetary system is rather closer to the system arrangements currency board currency board arrangements, a system that equalized the national currency in foreign currency increased by covering 100 percent with the disruption of multiple bank credit to a large extent.

    Thus, the cancellation of an auction of foreign currency and the transfer of the auction the central bank central to the government and the generation mechanism directly through the sale of the Ministry of Finance of foreign currency to the public through the mediation of banks (ie, generation of supermarket alternative outside the central bank) must lead to a fundamental change in monetary policy for Iraq: firstly, it will make the money supply more Milana to become a variable external exogenous controlled by monetary policy, rather than control the behavior of cash demand, the current which weakened from the work of central bank policy in achieving the ranks of more accurate and less expensive to achieve economic stability and financial stability together. Second, and notwithstanding the above, if Macamt government introduced its assets reserve of foreign currency to local banks, the banks will face quite a difficulty in the organization of cash flows cash flows, which could turn the banks to borrow from the Central Bank of Iraq, and then change direction of the market Open to take another turn, a strong direct dealing in securities and domestic public debt instruments of monetary nature, which is quasi money, and money orders Khawwalat Treasury bonds and central bank in addition to discount commercial paper to provide liquidity. And then will signal interest has an important and eloquent in monetary policy may compensate for the same role played by the reference exchange rate under the central market of foreign currency now.

    as the achievement of interest equilibrium in the economy will prepare an intermediate target or the installer's nominal forecasts inflationary nominal anchor to address the surplus of aggregate demand economy in order to achieve the objectives of monetary policy to stabilize. The third one present, and, as we noted, the money supply will increase through the creation of credit by a double credit for it (more than one lot) which makes the cash basis through open market operations more effective to double credit to adjust the levels of liquidity. And enhancing the power of monetary policy in achieving the depth financial and indirect impact of credit activities to serve the stability and economic growth. Finally, the government may face problems in irregular cash flows for the banks depending on the impact of monetary policy and direction, whether radical or is expansive responsive. Which may have public finances between now and then to sell part of its assets to foreign central bank thus enhancing the bank's reserves, including, but would be affected by these trends, as we noted in advance the nature of monetary policy

  14. Russel from Oz view on our Investment

    The Iraqi Dinar is currently worthless, but I (Russell from Oz) and others who have done extensive due diligence (Kaperoni, Enortste and few others) feel that the Iraqi Dinar will revalue at about or just above US$1.00... possibly at $1.17 - $1.20.

    There have been countless articles released from the CBI and GOI regarding the revaluation (delete 3 zero’s project) in recent months. All point to and reference a revaluation of about 1000:1 which would put the new dinar at about equal to US$1.00

    It is apparent from articles and news items out of Iraq lately that the main currency on the street in Iraq is the US$... this fits in with what we perceive was Shabibi’s plan to pull the large 3 zero notes out of circulation in Iraq (the “delete 3 zero’s” project).

    Now we get to the sad and difficult argument by so many non thinkers about JUST HOW WILL IRAQ PAY FOR THE RV?

    The common answer we see is that these countries will buy oil with the Dinars we cash in... ummmmmmmmm, in my opinion that’s a really dumb answer. Blind Freddie can tell you that at $32 a barrel it will take Iraq hundreds of years of oil supply at 10 mill barrels a day to cash out 20 to 30 trillion dollars if the RV is $3.22, let alone Okie Oilmans and other hairy fairy RV rates of $10 to $22 ... dammit, even at $100 a barrel it will take about 100 years, and by then we will be importing some exotic new power source from Mars anyways!


    Shabibi doesn’t care how many Dinars are held outside Iraq, because he has stated several times that those dinars will be held as “Foreign Currency Reserves” in those outside countries.... all countries around the world hold “Foreign Reserves”. They are basically an investment in the growth of the country that issued that currency. For example, China holds about 3 trillion US$ in their foreign reserves. Saudi Arabia and other major oil producers hold massive reserves of US$’s... that was all part of the plan set up by Keisinger et al years ago... this has allowed the USA to print massive amounts of dollars that will NEVER be cashed in. These countries holding US$ in foreign reserve accounts CAN’T EVER cash them in for their own currency, because if they do it will collapse the US$ and the worlds currency system TOTALLY. (yup, the worlds monetary system is just a house of cards, whether you like it or not... and it always has been).

    OK... now you (hopefully) understand how money works at a macro level, consider this... why has Shabibi been printing and allowing Dinars to flow out of his country? Could it be to control inflation internally while increasing the amount of US$ in Iraq? ... Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    Shabibi has stated MORE THAN ONCE that the Dinars outside Iraq will REMAIN as Foreign Reserves in the countries that hold them... THAT MEANS that THESE dinars we and our treasuries hold WON’T EVER be going back to Iraq... so... Shabibi doesn’t have to worry about them or their perceived effect on his money supply. Foreign Reserves are NOT part of M1 and M2... money supply WITHIN Iraq. He is ONLY concerned with M1 and M2 (Money in Iraq in cash and loans mortgages etc).

    The simple fact is Shabibi and Iraq only have to fund a revaluation WITHIN Iraq... and at a RV rate of 1000:1 they only need the equivalent of about 60 billion USD worth (which they already have in foreign reserves of US$’s).

    YES FOLKS, the fact is Iraq doesn’t need to find trillions of dollars to revalue their currency because they don’t have to cash us out... our central banks are going to do that, not Iraq. When we cash out, our dinars will go to our various countries central banks (the FED in America’s case for example) or to our treasuries. Our countries will issue to our bank accounts a digital equivalent in local currency to what we cash in. Our Dinars will then go and be held in Foreign reserves in our countries. In doing so our countries will increase money supply in our countries which will be a MASSIVE STIMULUS to our economies (we will buy new homes, cars and all sorts of do-dads from China).... some of us will probably even invest part of our newfound wealth back into Iraq.

    Now you are asking... OK you Aussie hero, WHY HAS THE FREAKIN RV NOT HAPPENED ALREADY ??

    Shabibi (the CBI boss) has stated many times that he is ready... he’s said “soon”, in a “few days” , “in the coming days” etc going way back to his visit to America early in 2011 (about April I think). We all know he was ready in June 2011 too.

    Our theory ( that of Kaperoni, Enorste and myself from )... is that Maliki (the Prime Minister of Iraq) is the problem. Not that Maliki doesn’t want an RV, he does, he’s desperate for it, however, Shabibi won’t press the RV button UNTIL Maliki makes good on his promises that he made in order to get into power. He promised to share high Cabinet posts with other coalition members (Erbil... Alawi etc) and the HCL law with Kurdistan. These are unmet promises that put him in power over 18 months ago. We believe that Shabibi won’t RV until Maliki gives way and delivers on his promises.


    Don't give up your day job...

    Don’t go crazy taking layaways...

    Don’t use the rent money...

    HOWEVER... This could happen t aany time now... tonight, next week, next year... or we may have to wait until after another election, but I sure as hell hope not!
