  7. Our economy..and the black swan Monday 02 August 2021 193 Dr.. Ahmed Al Husseini The Iraqi economy still faces many crises, and the reason is due to its rentier nature and the spread of financial and administrative corruption in many of its joints, despite the attempts of successive governments after 2003 to find effective solutions to extricate the economy from its bitter reality, and because of this nature that colors this economy, the swan theory The black swan theory works according to specific mechanisms in the Iraqi economy, and the reader may wonder about the nature of the black swan?
