Specialists: fluctuating inflation confuses living life for citizens

Baghdad/zahraa Al Jassim

Like many employees, as well as the vast majority of people, you may not realize, in a wasteland
State services, meaning high or low inflation index as she read it in the newspapers or hear on the
radio and television, but they are complaining about and expresses concern about how they can
develop a stable budget for the family as her and her husband, the employee's salary also began to
go down due to the release of several deductions.

( This is from the perspective of the Iraqi working class citizen, who are having diffuculties in
setting a budget, with fluctuations in the cost of living, and deductions now coming out of salaries. )

Ministry of planning revealed in the latest report of the Central Bureau of statistics for lower annual inflation index for the year 2016 (0.9%), but this year was opened slightly higher in the past month of January (0.1%), having a high rate (0.2%) During the month of December of last year, inflation rose by another base rate (0.3%) From the previous month, with mention in the report that price survey did not include the provinces of Nineveh, Anbar, because of the security situation, as it is known.

( 2016 saw a reduction in the inflation numbers, but the beginning of this year saw a slight increase.
Some provinces not being concidered due to the security situation. )

The parliamentary Finance Committee member Magda Tamimi considered it normal to happen
fluctuation in inflation index in the absence of real productivity of the State in General, and
stresses the importance of strengthening the value of dinar through attention to the private sector.

( Here Tamimi gives the inflation numbers, and noted that this fluctuation was "normal".. "in the
absence of real productivity of the "State in general" and that it is important to "strengthen the
dinars value " by focused attention on the "private sector" )

Tamimi adds, saying in an interview for (how): when we have a good market movement recuperative economy, this development is reflected on the ability of the Iraqi dinar and high value to foreign currencies, adding: therefore all rely on the private sector because the strength of the economy comes from activate agriculture and industry, however: but the reality is that there is a recession in the market and unemployment, and we hardly count at all on imports from abroad.

( Here Tamimi points out that "we have good market movement" and a recuperating economy. This is
reflected by the high value of the dinar, against foreign currencies. They have managed to keep the
dinar stable, even under the influence of a strong dollar, among other local exchange rates )

Tamimi asserts: that the rise in the inflation index, even if slightly, it affects low-income citizens, because the man's earnings are not enough to buy the same goods or services which he bought before, so the purchasing back down, which means more poverty and high rates of poverty.

( Here Tamimi speaks of a decrease in "purchasing power". And even "slight" inflation can play havoc with those on a low income. he just can not buy what he once could. reflecting in high poverty rates and unemployment. )

The planning Ministry spokesman Abdul Zahra Hindawi said in a media statement, a number of important divisions recorded a rise in prices, which rose by Housing Department (1.1%) to contribute the amount (169.2%) Monthly change rate due to high rental collection indices (0.1%) Housing services, maintenance group (0.8%, and electricity and water supply group (10.1% and the other is health department record increase (0.1) to contribute the amount (2.1%) in average monthly change, indicating that prices have risen by Transport Department (0.1) to contribute the amount (8.0%) Monthly change rate, and various goods and Services Department record increase (0.5%) To contribute the amount (11.7%) In the monthly rate of change. .

( Here the ministry spokesman Hindawi, gives some reasons for the rise in rentals. To include collection fees, maintenance, electricity and water supply. other indicators are the rise in cost of health care, transportation, and the monthly change rate of goods and services.)

Economist sees his dorgham Mohamed to high and low inflation as long as not based on
developmental grounds is not an indication of the recovery of the Iraqi economy as some believe, being still depends mainly on the only oil supplier.

He says in an interview for "(over) that, by working to adjust the price of the dollar in the domestic market and expansion in the housing sector, and other factors, including increased demand for property market rental allowances bumping, alluding to the adjacent areas of military operations in Nineveh witness exodus can increase demand on rents might raise their prices.

( Here other factors to inflation are, the adjustment of the dollar price in the domestic market, demand for property, rental allowances bumping(allowed to rise) due to proximity of military operations, and the exodus(displacing of people, refugees fleeing. )

And continue on talking: any rise to the dollar in local market rises with consumer exchange rate and raising the exchange rate and low inflation index, pointing out that it leads to a low exchange rate for the consumer, adds: so the country's inflation index is subject to several factors, most notably the dollar prices of imported goods which is determined by the fact that Iraqi citizens today depends almost entirely on imports.

( Any rise in the dollar, raises the consumer exchange rate. Along with a low inflation index, leads to low exchange rate for the consumer. He explains the country's inflation is due to sveral factors, most prominent being the costs of imports due to Iraqs dependence on imports. )

Successive crises and Iraq experiencing tangled strain its economy and finances and resources, with no corresponding temporary solutions aushklih, where widespread financial and administrative corruption in most State galleries and the inability of regulators to prosecute the corrupt and legal actions, public money has made vulnerable to looting by various individuals and groups for lack of deterrent laws and strict measures taken against them, which is clearly reflected through the failure of new development projects and material and human fragility.

( Successive crises have strained the economy with no short term or temporary solution. Corruption has been the major obstacle, to include the follow up and conviction of those accused of corruption.Stalled laws, and the lack of law to address this, is shown by the faliure in new developement projects, material, and taking the human condition into concideration. )
