There is clearly a push to get things off the ground now not later. IMO the 2022 budget has to be sorted prior to the 2023. Just as 2003 – 2021 have been. 2022 is no different, except, it has the EFSL that isolated $80 – $150 Billion from the elite poloticians..

Thus, that included the Kurds who are by the away apparently working through that now, as noted by the UN comments and the Kurds themselves.. The HCL is a focus and rightfully so..

The KURDS were not involved with the operational side of the EFSL. The are a part of the investment side.. 

To the fixed exchange rate based off oil suggests they are further along than some may think. They have numbers to work from now and it allow for the budget to be more as an investment budget.  It will be one that enhances revenues and reduces expenses.

They know as well as many do , the private sector is going to alleviate the reliance on just oil. There are many avenues with a market economy to fill the gaps. 

The Financial Management Law shows us that the budget must be submitted by mid October… There was work that was on going during the time frame of the care taker government. They didn’t quit work. imo..

Now we have a fully seated government. They can not only amend laws they can pass them as well, new or old.  I am looking for the exposure for the finality of the 2022, it is the foundation along with the audited budgets bas to 2003..


The reconciliation of 2022 has what the 2023 needs.. imo If there is data to support that this thinking is wrong please provide the data and links to support. I would like to see it..

Peace to you all this fine Sunday.. ~ MM
