Yes, here I am and this is what I have to say about it.  Educate the "vulnerable souls" right away, so that nobody takes advantage of them.

We don't want to wait until May and we don't want Maliki (or any lackey of his) in power.  If Abadi RVs the currency before elections, he's got a sure "win".

And the problem is  -  How we gonna pay all those new taxes that are in the budget, fellow citizens?  We gonna eat less?

 

I imagine they’ll be eating less sugar and honey as they are now taxed at 200%  😐

 

Also, it’s just this one guys opinion that it needs to wait until after the elections. You can’t give these guys an open ended time frame like that, they need a concrete deadline or they just kick it down the road month after month.

At the current value of the IQD, the government will drive its people into the ground like a tent stake-yea, I know: even more so than before. Their only salvation comes with a Globally recognized currency bringing with outside investment.

 

 That and hopefully after the elections, a competent GOI:unlike the present company of baboons occupying the Parliament building.

Economy News Baghdad:
The central bank has submitted a project to delete three zeros of currency, with the aim of coping with inflation and revitalizing the economy, but has had to stop it because of the worsening security and political situation in the country.
The governor of the central bank, Ali relationship, said in a discussion session with the editors of a number of Iraqi media, including the "Economy News", that "the theme of deleting the zeros of the coin are ready, but it needs an appropriate environment to apply it, noting that" providing the right environment contributes to preventing manipulation and fraud By the weak souls. "
The central government stands with the central Bank project to delete three currency zeros, because it sees "hurt in raising the efficiency of the cash payments system", according to the financial advisor to the head of government.
"The current environment is suitable for this project because there is financial and political stability in the country, especially after the salvation of Isis," said Mohammed Saleh, in an interview with the economy news.
He stressed that the project should not be relied upon to support the Iraqi dinar, but rather "focus on creating all the conditions that would support the Iraqi dinar and political and economic stability, pointing out that the central bank has accumulated experience in dealing with the subject.
The Economist, in the name of Jamil Anton, told the "Economy News", "the current environment is inappropriate for the current zeros project, because the security situation has not yet stabilized in perfect form."
"The project needs educational campaigns to be accepted by citizens and does not affect market traffic," he said, stating that "the project has the benefits of reducing the amount of money used in deposits, which helps accountants not to make mistakes in dealing with zeros in the amounts. Large, as well as reduce the number of fund secretaries and protect money from theft. "
Antoine predicted that the project would be implemented after the legislative elections scheduled for next May.

Antione Jamil is obviously  from the Maliki camp. Cause like what, there is not enough security and stability now, but there will be after the elections? Yeah, right! Let's see Ali Al Alak and Mohamed Sales are both saying the time is suitable NOW. So for me, I think that I will take central bank governors and deputy governors for 20,000,000.00 Alex!

My God!  These people have to be the most aggravating people in the world.

Their news articles say one thing today and the opposite tomorrow.

Their parliament are crooks and don't want to work.

I could make this list 10 miles long, if I think about it long enough.

Sooooooo different from the rest of civilization.

Hopefully, with the advent of internet, cellphones, etc. the younger generation will see what the rest of the world is like and won't stand for what previous generations have tolerated.

      Talk about re-work coin and delete the zeros from the paper
      19/08/2019

       
      A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee revealed that there is a tendency to reintroduce the coin that has been used for decades in the country, while another member of the Committee proposed to pre-empt the coining process by “deleting zeros” from the current currencies so that there would be value for the small cash classes.
       
      The committee member, MP Hanin al-Qadu, that "during meetings and discussions with officials at the Central Bank stressed the need to re-work coins that were used in Iraq during the past decades, rather than paper that is damaged and printed in large quantities again."
       
      He explained, "The use of metal categories and their descent for trading gives a notional value of the currency," noting that "a number of neighboring countries (exchange rates are very high against the dollar) and yet we find that it has a coin in order to preserve the currency and not need to request more papers Cash, especially in small categories. "
       
      He expressed surprise at the "policy of the Central Bank, which does not favor the introduction of coins for circulation in the Iraqi market."
       
      The Central Bank of Iraq announced in April 2005 to offer coins of denominations of 25, 50 and 100 dinars for circulation for the first time after it was canceled by the regime of Saddam Hussein after the Gulf War in 1991.
       
      The Iraqi currency was canceled in 1991 when the international economic embargo on the country to increase the rate of inflation in Iraq by 1000%, and the result of the situation under the economic siege and a significant rise in prices led to the destruction of the value of the Iraqi currency and reaching a very low and severe exchange rate , Which made the coin and the few currency denominations without value.
       
      It is noteworthy that the Iraqi dinar, which was equal to 3.22 dollars before the occupation of the former Iraqi regime of Kuwait in 1990, its value fell to one dollar equivalent to three thousand dinars by 1996.
       
      Another member of Parliamentary Finance said, "The cost of a coin is more than paper money, and it is more difficult to carry it on the citizen." 
       
      MP Ahmed al-Saffar said that "inflation in the economy prevents the minting of coins and make them circulate among citizens," suggesting that "there is a step to delete the zeros before the coinage process to be a value for small groups to large."

      Exchange rate 1000 old to 1 new
      Current Currency
      After Deletion of three zeros
      aka Redenomination
       
       
      No Millionaires Will be made by holding onto the old currency that will get Redenominated
       
      A rupiah redenomination bill is currently being sought by the Indonesian government and it is asking the House of Representatives to start the legislation process for the bill next year.
      The redenomination is an attempt to simplify currency transactions by replacing the currency with a new one. In the past, officials have mooted the idea of removing three zeros from the rupiah. For example, a Rp 1,000 note would become simply Rp 1.
      Finance Minister Agus Martowardojo conveyed the plan to House Deputy Speaker Anis Matta on Friday, according to Ignatius Mulyono, chairman of the House’s legislation committee.
      “The House accepted the government’s plans,” Ignatius said. “We are now awaiting the draft to be submitted to the House.”
      Ignatius said that the House would discuss whether the redenomination bill could be included in the 2013 national legislation program — a list of bills that the House targets to ratify during a year.
      An academic study of the bill, Ignatius said, has been completed. “With the redenomination, transactions would be simpler and faster,” he said.
      Bank Indonesia has introduced higher-denomination bills five times since 1964 because of inflation. That makes current daily transactions often run into the millions of rupiah.
      The Rp 100,000 ($10.43) note is now the second-highest denomination banknote in the region after Vietnam’s 500,000 dong note.
      There are concerns, however, that the proposal could devalue the currency. But Ignatius said that the House would ensure that the government would conduct intensive socialization programs for the public should the bill be passed.
      Agus said that the government and Bank Indonesia had coordinated closely to transform the redenomination idea into a workable plan.
      He also added that any redenomination process would take anywhere from five to 10 years to complete.
      One of the likely consequences of a redenomination is marked prevalence in the use of coins because they are worth smaller denominations.

      TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Center for Strategic and International’s economist Haryo Aswicahyono, said currency redenomination should be done after general elections where the public psychological condition is relatively stable to prevent politicalization.
      "The current situation is unstable. If the people are panic because of redenomination, banks may be affected," Haryo said yesterday. According to him, most people have not understood about redenomination and often mistaken it with sanering (slashing of currency's value).
      Bank Indonesia (BI)'s governor Agus Martowardojo previously said redenomination needs economic and political stability. One of the influencing factors of national economy is the fluctuating global and domestic conditions and last year's current account deficit.
      According to BI's deputy of payment system, Ronald Waas, although the economy is unstable, redenomination must be done. The House of Representatives (DPR) has established a special committee and the central bank has informed the public about redenomination.
      The government has planned to implement redenomination policy by removing the last three digits in rupiah. Redenomination bill has been submitted to the DPR and is expected to become law this year.
      Redenomination has been said to need seven years of preparation which includes printing, designing, distribution, socialization and education. "Our country is big. Preparation and committment from all sides are needed," Ronald said.

      Bank Indonesia (BI) Governor Agus Martowardojo has said a stable economy is the key to the successful implementation of the redenomination that will replace Rp 1,000 of the old currency with the new Rp 1.

      “We want to make sure that the redenomination will be successful, but one of the keys is that it takes place when the country’s economy is stable and in good condition,” he said in Jakarta on Thursday, as quoted by Antara news agency.

      Agus said that in 2013, domestic economic growth was corrected and the impacts of global fluctuations could still be felt in 2014.

      “The US Federal Reserve’s monetary stimulus has been reduced while domestically, the inflation rate in 2013 has increased, exceeding the targets expected,” said Agus.

      Moreover, he said, Indonesia’s current account was predicted to remain at a deficit of 3.5 percent until the end of 2013 and the weakening of rupiah exchange rate was still a challenge for the country’s economy this year.

      “To ensure the redenomination’s targets can be achieved, it would be better that we don’t push ourselves to implement this in a less than proper situation,” said Agus.

      Similarly, Deputy BI Governor Ronald Waas said one of requirements for the implementation of the redenomination was the stable economy and political situation.

      “The current economic situation is less conducive to implementing the redenomination,” said Ronald, while mentioning the redenomination plan would still continue.

      “The President’s directives must go on. The House of Representatives has established a special committee while public discussions have taken place,” he added.
