6-6-2014 Newshound Guru Kaperoni the world has been trying to push Iraq forward for 10 years. They move at their pace and have little regard for their people. Just a few short months ago, we were literally 3-5 days away (parliament voting) on passing the budget and several economic laws which would have opened the doors to a market economy. Now we have the dispute between the Kurds and central government which shut down parliament indefinitely, no formation of the new GOI, escalating violence, increasing unemployment, no budget so many projects coming to a halt..its getting worse, not better. I am not saying the "sky is falling" but how can anyone think that the currency reform is going to start under those conditions? Yes, the banking system continues to push forward, and it appears the CBI is trying to do it's part. But I cannot see this happening until significant progress is made to resolve these other issues.
