Article: “An invitation to link the Iraqi dinar to the global economy ” Quote: “noting the importance of the introduction of the Iraqi dinar to global markets.” This is pretty much how we have described moving to Article VIII, ending the auctions, international investors, Balassa-Samuelson effect, etc. Sooner or later if they want a market economy they have to transition the dinar and banking system. No way to avoid it. So lets hope that this is a tip off of what is to come. …Iraq has accomplished a lot the last 3-6 months with much more to come this year. The important thing to take away from this article is the description, the plan, the process. This economist clearly gets it, and is “inviting” the CBI to be bold, and make the move. Something we all want to see happen. We have talked about it for a few years now..and now we must let it come to us.
