Looks like the latest decision by the CBI to devalue the dinar by 22% is cutting out the spread that is made in the currency auctions and money exchangers.
The decision is hurting the people

The decision is hurting the corrupt

The decision is hurting the banks and their profits

The decision is hurting money laundering operations  
The decision is forcing the banks to invest in other profitable ventures (mortgages, loans, credit cards, fees etc)

The decision will increase financial inclusion 

The decision will reduce  the monetary mass

The decision will create liquidity 



Go new monetary policy 


Go 2021

Go $1:1

Spot on brother, this is a strategic move to eventually raise the value of the IQD. Do not get discouraged DV on this latest move by the CBI, it is part of the long term plan, it will accomplish what Laid Back has proposed here and will bring Iraq to the worlds stage. Most important, the decision to reduce the monetary mass, also, we have noticed a urgency to complete certain amount of issues that have been piling up for years now, the agreement with the KURDS being at the top of that list. Hang tight, its going to be an interesting finish to this trying year.

Laidback, I always find your input helpful. Thank you. The two above items did cross my mind when I first read about the devaluing but I didn’t know if it was just wishful thinking on my part. 😀 Maliki hating the plan gave some credibility to my thinking and reading your post convinced me.
