The belief that the IQD is purposly UNDERvalued is FALSE. The CBI has issued more dinar and the reserves have been depleted by at least 20 Bn USD. They also may have sold some gold. We wont know until the CBI issues the annual report for 2019. They are talking about raiding the reserves again to cover COVID19 stimulus. The street price is up to 1280:$. Sort of proves the autoins have been proping it up for a long time. It will be interesting to see the value when they open the auctions . .

) - William "Bill" Kelly, a 95-year-old veteran of WWII who also lived through the Great Depression has added another accomplishment to his name after contracting the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, and beating it. "I am doing well," said Kelly. "I definitely feel very good this morning." Kelly's family was there to support him through his recovery, including his granddaughter, Rose Etherington, and her husband, Isaac Etherington, with whom he lives in Yamhill County, Oregon. They joined ABC News' "Pandemic: What You Need to Know" to share their story, and remind people that there "are a lot of people surviving and getting through" the COVID-19 pandemic, Isaac Etherington said. (Isaac Etherington, Bill Kelly and his granddaughter Rose Etherington talk to ABC News about how the 95-year-old veteran overcame coronavirus.ABC News) Kelly said he took steps to care for himself once he started feeling the illness coming. "It's just something that you deal with as you get it. The big thing with me is that if I feel that I'm coming down with something, take good care and get help, find out what to do and do what you're supposed to do, get plenty of rest — that sort of thing," he said. "You generally get through it OK. I was very fortunate that I did. I got through." Kelly said he had "two or three pretty tough nights and evenings where I had problems with my lower [body], my legs and my back — difficulty getting rest — because it was very uncomfortable trying to sleep. Other than that, though, you work your way through it. Do as you're told. And I got some good help here." (William Kelly, 95, with his two great grandchildren in an undated photo.Rose Etherington) He said his family was there to help him. "They stayed right on me," he said. "So we worked it all through. So we're very happy and happy to be here." Kelly, who has kidney disease, a congenital heart condition and high blood pressure, first started feeling symptoms of the infection on March 15, the family told ABC News. "When Grandpa Bill doesn’t feel well, he doesn’t say anything and we have to dig it out of him," Isaac Etherington said. "He said he wasn’t feeling well and he had a fever of 100.7 [degrees]. We called his doctor. He was coughing a little and his legs and body hurt."

Things are getting crazy. Maybe it is a side effect of cabin fever. people areloosing their sense of logic. The gold standard was a failure. Check Wikipedia. Certainly would not be any different today. IQD part of CBI reserves ??? That's not logical . If a central bank could count it's own currency as a reserve it would just issue a big bond put it in the reserve and call it even it would declare any value it wanted. Just a numbers game. There would be no change in real value in the world market. Only BIS and IMF can state what can be used as a reserve currency. The possibility that a RV of the dinar would solve Iraqs problems is impossible . The only thing that would is a massive increase in oil revenues and that is not likely. The idea that a RV of any amount would cause banks to want to buy dinar is Guru pupu. Banks will buy (i.e. broker) dinar ONLY when they have a customer for it .. WHO would that be ??? The only people who want dinar would be those who would have to believe there would be profit to be made that is better and less risky than some other investment .. Many more would want to SELL than buy.
LINK Private banks in Erbil resume work and specify dealing in dollars and dinars 2nd April, 2020 On Wednesday, private banks in the governorate of Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan Region, were resumed at work, and while the reviews witnessed great crowds, the return of patronage and favoritism cases was noted. The "Shafaq News" reporter said, "The civil banks in Erbil today resumed official working hours in the midst of crowded auditors," noting that "the Iraqi Commercial Bank in Irbil witnessed great crowds and according to the instructions, his administration has entered all five auditors with each other." He added, "This created a kind of grumbling, and also witnessed cases of patronage and cronyism, and the entry of some deputies without the obligation to wait until their role comes." And that the bank’s administration spent the sums to the citizens by 75% in dollars and 25% in the Iraqi currency. Private banks have stopped working since March 18, last year because of the curfew announced by the Iraqi government in the capital, Baghdad, and applied by other provinces, as well as in the Kodestan region, due to the outbreak of the Corona virus.
The way im kinda reading it is , 300,000 per family , 30,000 per individual that is not getting a gov. salary .. cheers 300,000 iqd = 252.10 usd 30,000 iqd = 25.21 usd
Very interesting article, thanks for posting dear kamelkeeper, A floating currency is self-adjusting to changing economic conditions relative to a nation's external trading partners. Importers must automatically pay more for imports when the country's competitive position deteriorates, ditto they automatically get better prices when competitive position improves. It is not very common to see a country with floating currency, as this may cause a great loss of reserves, a non-controllable increase of monetary supply, etc. What central banks often do is leave a floating currency but intervene to regulate the currency's price. We wait and see.
It may be fake news but on the flip side if it keeping people inside and stopping the spread I guess it could be a good thing. Let's face it, people have shown their inability to act responsibly and not put other people at risk unless they have the s*** scared out of them. I'm not for government bullcrap and fake news but sometimes so called adults need to be treated like little kids. People started whining about being home for 1 week like a bunch of little kids. These are people who have never really suffered, served the in the military or had real adversity in their life. That's about the majority of the US population. They have had inconveniences in their life but that is about it. It's not the crisis that defines the man. It's how the man handles the crisis that defines him. Look around and you will see what I mean. Off my soapbox now.
Yota Thanks, DV, Are we talking 30,000 or 300,000 IQD per person because both amounts are given? Any comments to add. GO RV & RI
