sandyf   Back in the early day many were optimistic about possibility of The IQD gaining value through reconstruction in Iraq. Even incompetence from the US administration and the death of the UN envoy Sergio Vieira de Mello did little to dampen the optimism and the years went by with only some small increase.

About 2009/10 along came the modern day gurus like Terryk and dinarland moved to fantasyland with talk of 3 dollars plus and the GCR. People should reflect on the timing of this, shortly after the financial crisis of 2008.

It is not out of the question that the financial crisis gave birth to a plan to restructure the global financial situation. Should such a plan exist it could be that over the years misinformation has been allowed into the pubic domain to satisfy a particular agenda.

I find it a bit strange that more aggressive steps have not been taken to shut down the speculation if it was doomed to failure in its entirety.

There may well be some return on the Iraqi dinar but one thing is for sure, it is not going to come from anything that Iraq does. The three zeros project is a redenomination and nothing more than a distraction in the bigger picture.
