BGG ~ With all they have going on right now, am I the only one that finds this article a little strange?

IMHO – the whole world is in a hurry to get off the USD. We have triggered our own hyperinflation (thereby HAMMERING our own currency) and NO ONE wants any part of it. Not even Iraq.

Iraq may well be the one currency in the UNIVERSE with the actual assets to be a true non-Fiat currency and is still referred to as “grossly undervalued”.

When looking for a hedge – it’s ANYTHING but green money.

Economist: Central Bank policy contributed to achieving monetary stability

Economist: Central Bank policy contributed to achieving monetary stabilityAlsumaria news/Baghdad: The observer for economic affairs, Hassan Al-Hajj, confirmed today, Wednesday, that the policy of the Central Bank and the plans that it has set in the past months have directly contributed to achieving monetary stability and raising the level of Iraq’s strategic reserve of hard currency, in addition to the flexibility of the plans in place in line with the challenges. economic locally and globally.

Al-Hajj said in an interview with Alsumaria News, “The Central Bank’s procedures in dealing with the global economic crisis were very clear in a positive and professional manner, unlike what happened in many countries of the world, where we saw a significant increase in the bank’s hard currency reserves from 50 to 76 billion dollars. It will reach $90 billion before the end of this year, which has a positive impact on the stability of the currency price in the market and the inability of traders to manipulate it.”

He added, “The Central Bank adopts flexible policies and plans that are consistent with all the variables of the economic situation in the local and global market, and they are in remarkable progress, especially with regard to the issue of containing cases of corruption or currency smuggling that occurred in previous periods through the currency sale auction, where we saw a clear decline in These violations are a result of the new controls set by the Central Bank to contain these negative cases during the past six months, and we hope that they will end in the complete bomb phase.”

Legislation of the oil and gas law now will cut the road to the region

Legislation of the oil and gas law now will cut the road to the region

The backbone and cornerstone of the region’s authority is oil and the money obtained from allegiance outside the authority of the federal government, and thus made them an empire that was able to buy the votes and consciences of many local and international politicians. Therefore, the best way to return the region to Iraq is to control the oil in the region and the opportunity is now very favorable after The latest Federal Court decision.

All indicators now show us that the region’s authority is now living in its most difficult political situation because it is living its last days in extending its influence over oil, and its recent attempts to file a lawsuit against the Minister of Oil or to try to establish oil companies corresponding to the federal companies are miserable attempts that do not benefit it from implementing the Federal Court’s decision It is also classified only as “attempts to buy time” and is betting on the weakness of the leaders from the center and the south to give up their right in return for the Kurds to vote for them.

The second matter pressing on the authority of the region is political, not judicial, technical as the first, which is the fragmentation of the tripartite political alliance, which lost the region its influence and power in Parliament and thus its voice and influence in decision-making.

In all the political statements made by the Minister of Natural Resources of the region or other leaders of the region, they mention that the federal government is constitutionally negligent in not legislating the federal oil and gas law recommended by the constitution in Article (112 – first) and therefore the federal oil and gas law must be legislated for the following reasons :

1 – The best response to the authority of the region and cutting the excuses against them

2 – Doing justice to the oppressed people of the center and the south by letting the oil exported from their land go to others.

3 – It helps the people of the region by distributing oil imports to them, as is the case with the people of the center and the south, and ensuring that their salaries are not interrupted.

4 – Reducing the inflation of some members of the authority in the region, which now feels larger than Iraq.

5 – Inflating the general revenues included in the federal general budget, which are estimated annually at more than ten billion dollars annually, in addition to the resources of border crossings, as well as the funds that it takes from the federal government.

The conclusion is that the latter’s movements fall under the pretext of indifference only, but the matter and the circumstances are taking place contrary to their current, and the local or international judicial decisions will inevitably come with what the Kurdish politicians do not desire.

They are prejudiced. The days of forming the government come, and therefore the Shiite leaders need the votes of the Kurds in forming the government, and therefore they use the oil card in negotiating, but now the issue is very different and that the second party is in its strongest condition and does not need the voice of the regional authority and therefore, as I said, they are in great weakness and therefore the circumstance must be exploited in Legislation of the oil and gas law to ensure the right of the center and the south.

Al-Kazemi’s renewal is a compromise to end the government knot in Iraq

Al-Kazemi’s renewal is a compromise to end the government knot in Iraq

Al-Kazemis renewal is a compromise to end the government knot in IraqThe hosting of the leaders of the coordination framework of the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, for the first time in their meetings, sparked a political debate in Iraq, amid questions about whether the step had anything to do with the support of some forces within the framework to renew Al-Kazemi’s mandate.

Al-Kazemi attended a meeting of the framework leaders Thursday at the home of the head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Faleh Al-Fayyad, and the meeting included the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance Hadi Al-Amiri, the head of the State of Law coalition, Nuri Al-Maliki, and the leader of Asa’ib Ahl Al-Haq, Qais Al-Khazali.

A statement distributed by the framework indicated that hosting the Prime Minister was related to discussing security challenges and the Turkish incursion into northern Iraq, and the statement distinguished between the second part of the meeting, which was devoted to discussing the file of forming the government after the Sadrist bloc’s resignation from Parliament, and pointed out that the meeting took place without Al-Kazemi’s presence. , but political circles see that hosting has other dimensions, especially since there are leaders of the framework who see that the renewal of Al-Kazemi may constitute a compromise to end the government formation complex.

Al-Sadr, despite his withdrawal from the political process, remains influential in the scene, and is able to play more than one card, including the street

Some leaders of the coordination framework, including Al-Amiri, are cautiously dealing with the current developments on the political scene in Iraq, especially in relation to the resignation of the Sadrist movement’s representatives from Parliament, and the decision of the movement’s leader Muqtada Al-Sadr to boycott the entire political process.

These leaders believe that it is better to go in the option of discussing the formation of a non-provocative government, to the street or to Sadr, who, despite his adherence to the boycott, but remains influential in the scene, and is able to play on more than one card, including moving the street, considering that the renewal of Al-Kazemi may be the best option.

On the other hand, other leaders, led by Al-Maliki and Khazali, find in Al-Sadr’s withdrawal a valuable opportunity to pounce on the political process and impose absolute control over its details, and therefore they strongly reject Al-Kazemi’s choice, which they consider to be outside their orbit.

Observers say that Maliki, who has become the largest number of Shiite representatives after the withdrawal of the Sadrist movement, sees himself as the first qualification for the position of prime minister, which he previously held twice, and the result was tragic for Iraq.

Observers point out that al-Maliki’s assignment, if it were done, would not pass easily, as al-Sadr will not accept the boycotts of the political process to have his political opponent again at the head of the government, and this may lead the country to a dangerous turn, especially since al-Sadr has hundreds of thousands of followers who are ready to take to the street.

Observers consider that a government led by al-Maliki or any provocative political figure for al-Sadr will not last long, and is doomed to fall, recalling the scenario of the collapse of Adel Abdul-Mahdi’s government.

Abdul-Mahdi’s government was forced to resign at the end of 2019, in the face of unprecedented protests in Iraq, in which the Sadrist movement participated before withdrawing from it.

Observers say that this matter prompts a number of the framework leaders to propose keeping Al-Kazemi, who, despite the differences with him about his government orientations, especially in relation to foreign policies, but succeeded to some extent in controlling the pace of the situation in Iraq, in addition to being supported by Al-Sadr who had previously And expressed a desire to renew it.

The coordination framework announced on Thursday evening the formation of a negotiating committee for dialogue with the national forces to form the next government.

Al-Sadr does it and boycotts the entire political process
At the conclusion of the meeting, in which Al-Kazemi attended the first part, the framework forces confirmed that they had discussed political issues and the ongoing dialogues between the national forces, in order to complete the preparations related to the constitutional entitlements and the formation of a government of national unity.

Al-Maliki stated, “We extend our hands to everyone in cooperation with the Islamic and patriotic forces, whether they are inside or outside Parliament, as long as the goals and challenges do not separate us.”

He said in a tweet to him on his personal account on the social networking site Twitter, “We are keen to search for points of convergence, cooperation and integration, not intersection and disharmony, and we should not be separated by differences that are simple and not strategic.”

The Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr confirmed Wednesday the withdrawal of the Sadrist bloc’s deputies from parliament and the political process, which opened the doors for the forces of the Shiite coordination framework to lead the negotiations to form the new government, as it is the most numerous bloc in the Iraqi parliament, after the majority of the Sadrist bloc’s vacant seats in the Iraqi parliament came to it. .

The coordinating framework forces say that they wish to form a consensus government similar to all the governments that were formed in Iraq after 2003, which means the participation of all political forces in forming the new government, while the positions of the independent representatives are not yet clear, especially after the withdrawal of the Sadrist bloc that was calling for the formation of the new government. National majority government.

Observers believe that the most important position is the one that will be issued by the two allies of Al-Sadr, the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Sunni Sovereignty Coalition, and whether they are willing to engage with the framework in efforts to implement the rest of the entitlements.

The leader of the Sovereignty Coalition, Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi, had expressed optimism about the possibility of an end to the political blockage, the day after he accepted the resignation of al-Sadr’s deputies.

Al-Halbousi stated, “After the resignation of the Sadrist bloc, things will go in a different way,” noting that “the constitutional procedures will proceed if the number of members of the House of Representatives is completed, the vacant seats are compensated, and the political blockage is removed.”

Regarding the dissolution of Parliament and the early elections, Al-Halbousi pointed out that “this option is a constitutional option, and the previous elections were early and took place with the dissolution of Parliament, but so far this option has not been raised.” and its performance, and its evaluation shall be before the people.”

An Economist Identifies 3 Repercussions Of Raising The US Interest Rate On Iraq

An Economist Identifies 3 Repercussions Of Raising The US Interest Rate On IraqInformation / Baghdad…  Economist Nabil Al-Marsoumi identified the repercussions of the US Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates, warning that Iraq could be affected by the decision regarding the prices of imported goods.

Al-Marsoumi said in a Facebook post that was seen by / the information / that “the US Federal Reserve raised interest rates, by 75 basis points, to a range between 1.50% and 1.75%, in order to return inflation to its target of 2% after it reached last May. to 8.6%, which is the highest in 40 years.

He warned that “the harshest impact will be on Iraq and other developing countries, because the rise in US interests raises the exchange rate of the dollar against most of its currencies, and thus contributes to inflation and the cost of debt financing as much as it is borrowed in dollars. The annual basis is based on the market or (moving) interest in dollars, which the financial markets indicate to rise, such as the interest (Libor), which is the interest of lending and borrowing between banks in dollars in the London market, and even if some loans carry a fixed interest on the loan itself, but they carry a hedging risk margin around the fixed interest. .

He added, “All Iraqi exports are denominated in dollars, and most imports are either in dollars or with a country that manages its currencies fixed against the dollar, or close to stabilization, and therefore the rise of the dollar may benefit the parties that deal with it, including Iraq.”

He cautioned that “Iraq’s investment in dollar-denominated deposits or US bonds will lead to higher returns in the future, with higher US interest rates.” finished/25h
