Economist: The rumor of raising zeros needs 100 million dinars if the intentions are sincere

The economic expert, Diaa Mohsen, ruled out, on Monday, the possibility of exchanging the currency or raising zeros from it.

Mohsen said, in a statement to the agency, “The Information”, that “if the intentions of those holding on to power were sincere by exchanging the currency or raising the zeros from it, this means that we need 100 million dollars to make this big change.”

He stressed, “The argument for eliminating fraud in this plan requires burning all the money in the central bank and issuing a new dinar, but this matter is unlikely and just a process of feeling the pulse of the street.”

He pointed out that “the change will not make any difference between the local value of the Iraqi dinar and other currencies.”   link

The independent politician, Thaer Munir Al-Zubaidi, confirmed that the statements of deleting zeros entered the country’s economy into a new depression, to which are added the ill-studied economic and financial plans.

And he said in a press statement today that: the recent irresponsible statements about the deletion of zeros from the national currency on the one hand and the rise in the dollar exchange rate on the other hand constituted confusion and more depression in the Iraqi markets, which affected the work of the private sector in general.

Al-Zubaidi added that: the government measures to stop the deterioration of the national currency have not yet reached the required level, and the dollar exchange rate remained high without urgent and tangible solutions, despite the rise in the price of a barrel of oil to nearly $75.

He explained: We also did not witness any serious moves by the government and the regulatory authorities regarding the abnormally high food prices, which increased the suffering of people, especially the owners of daily work and limited income.

Al-Zubaidi called on the Prime Minister to hold an urgent meeting with the Ministry of Planning, the Governor of the Central Bank, the Integrity Commission and the supervisory authorities to remedy the collapse of the Iraqi economy and its negative effects on the standard of living of the citizen.  link
