  1. Monopolistic Power Is Growing Around the World, IMF Says But a new study from the International Monetary Fund cautions against rushing to judgment A new report from the IMF says rising market power may not necessarily reflect weakening antitrust policy. PHOTO: YURI GRIPAS/REUTERS By Greg Ip Apr 4, 2019 7:50 am ET 0 COMMENTS Declining competition throughout the economy isn’t just an American phenomenon. It’s true throughout much of the rich world, the International Monetary Fund has found. Still, the IMF, in a study accompanying its latest World Economic Outlook released Wednesday, says rising market power may not necessarily reflect weakening antitrust policy and advises against drastic action designed to curb or break up big companies. A company has market power if it can charge more than a purely competitive market would permit. The authors of the study test for the presence of market power in 27 countries, two-thirds advanced and one third emerging, by measuring “markups”: how much companies charge for a product above the cost of producing one. In theory, excessive markups should quickly disappear as new competitors undercut incumbents. Yet the IMF found between 2000 and 2015, companies’ markups in advanced economies rose eight percentage points. In other words, for every dollar of cost per unit, they were able to charge an additional eight cents. Markups didn’t rise in emerging countries, perhaps because they were relatively high to start with. This alone, they note, doesn’t prove declining competition hurt consumers. It’s possible that more productive firms with higher markups took market share from less efficient, less profitable firms. This explains much of the rise of in the U.S. Moreover, businesses with high fixed and low variable costs naturally have higher markups. A social-media company, for example, invests heavily in its website, content and software, while incurring almost no cost each time a member is added or a web page viewed. Such industries tend toward “winner-take-all” or “winner-take-most” outcomes. Yet even when markups and corporate concentration rise for benign reasons, it can extract a cost. Firms with few competitors don’t have to innovate as much. They have less incentive to invest since added production could flood the market, driving prices and profits down. The IMF concludes the rise in corporate markups since 2000 has hurt business investment, leaving gross domestic product 1% smaller than otherwise. It has contributed to at least a tenth of the narrowing in workers’ share of GDP. These trends, by reducing the need for capital and the economy’s underlying growth rate, have also depressed the so-called neutral interest rate, which keeps growth steady without spurring inflation, though only slightly. These effects are pretty small so far, but the IMF warns that if markups keep rising, so will the harm. So what should governments do? Around the world they face growing calls for antitrust authorities to block more mergers and acquisitions, even of small companies that may one day be a competitor to the big tech company acquirer. The IMF, however, is reluctant to join those calls. It notes that a merger may both reduce competition and yield more efficient and innovative companies. Whether the net result is good or bad “warrants investigation.” Rather, it recommends other steps to invigorate competition: ensuring intellectual property rights don’t slow the adoption of innovation, and taxing only those profits that come from market power (for example, from a patent-protected monopoly). https://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2019/04/04/monopolistic-power-is-growing-around-the-world/?guid=BL-REB-39368&dsk=y
  2. Luigi says... Good news...if this rumor is found to be true. We can now move on to the next RV hurdle. Not varified. Your opine. 8-30-2018 Newshound Guru chattels The CBI announces everyday the Market rate on its site, its called the ”Dollars Exchange Rate in Baghdad Markets “ and it shows perfect compliance since June. ...the CBI according to this report met 2% compliance on March 14 2018 and and has been able to maintain it to date. So good news. Many of us we unaware of the posting at the CBI and have been watching news reports. [Side Note: The latest CBI reported market rate can always be found on the left side of this page...the last CBI update shows the market rate of 1206 as of 8-30-2018...this is within the 2% rule.]
  3. This article says a lot. No clue how reliable the source is. Note item #4. Treat as a rumor. Not varified. Your opine. 4/3/18 Rudaw The modernizing & reformation of the Iraqi banking system was a requirement of the IMF: 1. Iraqi citizens finished a financial education week on Mon. May 1. 2. Everything that needed to be done for the RI (reinstatement of the Dinar as Iraq’s main currency over the US dollar) was done in the 1st quarter of 2018. 3. Contracts would now be done only in the local (Iraqi Dinar) currency. 4. The CBI announced that now Iraq had control of their exchange rate.
  4. Luigi asks... This may be nothing or something huge. Could the RV be around the corner? Your OPINE. Not VARIFIED. 11-27-2016 Intel Guru Frank26...

  5. 9-15-2016 Intel Guru Delta I have some information about the IMF meeting with Iraq...it looks like we might have a window for the date of the currency reform or basically the revaluation of the dinar...I just read it in Arabic...there seems to be a window that the IMF has given Iraq...they told them you have to finish the Monetary Reform of your currency...the internet is not seeing this in Arabic...it says in Arabic they told them to finish the Monetary Reform...and the Economic Reforms before November... 9-15-2016 Intel Guru Frank26 The information that is on the CBI website in Arabic makes it very clear...[Guru] DELTA translated it for us...and it said very clearly...at this meeting the IMF told Iraq...look you’ve done these things...but you have not done two things...if you want your loans...and that is what...articles are backing it up again...if you want your loans so you can complete your Economic Reforms...do the Monetary Reform...if not...IMO we will come in and we will do everything.
  6. Poppy3 believes nothing will happen until the 2nd half of 2017 according to a IMF report. Not varified. Your opine. Poppy3 18 Nov 2015... REPORT SAYS RV WILL HAPPEN BEFORE JULY 16TH 2016 ACCORDING TO IMF --- NOTHING CONFIRMED AS TO THE VALIDITY OR ORIGINATION. I PERSONALLY DONT SEE ANYWAY THEY CAN WAIT THAT LONG AND MOST ALL CBI AND OFFICIALS PREDICTING BEFORE 2016. THINGS ARE AWESOME AND WE WILL BE HEAVENLY BLESSED IN NO TIME AT ALL.
  7. from another source... 6-7-15 KTFA: DELTA : URGENT FROM IRAQIA TV: IMF LOAN WILL BE ADDED AS A RESERVE OF THE CENTRAL BANK!!! Billuke » So DELTA, if the loan is going to the CBI, doesn't this mean that the GOI will not be able to use the loaned money as they need it? Is this forcing the GOI or the CBI to do something? DELTA: THE REASON THEY ARE TAKING THE LOAN IS FOR A CREDIT RATING ALSO GOI NEED ABOUT $7 BILLION A MONTH. $800M NO HELP FOR GOV, BUT FOR CBI ..YES. EXAMPLE: FOR CBI $800 MILLION WILL BACK 8,000,000,000 DINARS IN CIRCULATION IN CASE OF 1-1 RATE!!! Family Business: Thanks Delta ....... imo this speaks rv sooner than later..... hopefully REAL SOON… Luigi says...If this artcle is true...then CBI will have insurance from IMF to cover the RV of the currency on the streets. This is the positive proof we been looking for that the PTB are working with Iraq behind the scenes. Our time is soon at hand. Fasten your seat belts & wait untill the ride comes to a complete stop before exiting. Go RV.
  8. 03-25-2015-Guru Nana- I just received intel from someone inside the UN. The IMF is supposed to announce the RV this evening or tomorrow at the latest. I thought it was very timing inasmuch as we have learned earlier today that the IMF would be given the privilege... Let us pray this is so. This is a very important night for as many as possible to join in the meditation at 10 PM EDT. Manifest, manifest, manifest. Give your opinion on this latest rumor.
