[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ] Dear friends in the UK, A correspondent in Baghdad is reporting of a possible currency crisis in Iraq at the very moment when the old Saddam dinar is being officially retired (today, 1/15). He resports widespread resentment about the devaluing dinar among Iraqis. At the same time, his figures are mixed up: he says where before he could exchange one US dollar for 2000 dinars, he can now only exchange one US dollar for 1000 dinars. But this suggests a sharp RISE in the value of the dinar! Can anyone help us figure out what he is talking about?
