Exchange rate and disinformation

Repeated calls by some observers to call for the lifting of the dinar exchange rate against foreign currencies, to the extent that some of those claims by making the value of the dinar equivalent to one dollar on the grounds that the caloric value of the current criticism is not consistent with the cash reserve ratios, that the reserves which currently stands at rates around $54 billion with nearly 80 tons of gold should be reflected in the local currency value against foreign currencies, which in turn will contribute to the national currency trading in foreign markets!!, with cut and the relevant authorities to silence does not comment on those claims whenever repeated, as if rise above squabbles with such rumors and allegations, leaving the media for such, known by raising the fallacies over the years after the change, to promote such claims which are usually drowned out by the general public, as easy exits for the crisis the country’s economy, as soon It has been circulating on social networking sites on the grounds that the central bank had announced since years for the project to delete the zeros!!

Ignoring the main objective of the project to delete the zeros which aims to restore the money supply structure in line with the market data movement and the country’s need to invest in unstable security conditions reflect negatively on the cash handling operations during transactions especially with regard to large sums in buying, selling and trading currency between banks and other institutions operations, so that some social networking pages that calls itself the economic nomenclature, allowed itself to frequently publish such narratives, intentionally or unintentionally, the same that were promoted to project «dollarization» wages more heavily exposed exchange rate fluctuations in price due to the political and economic variables local and international levels.

The silence on what is called the propaganda bubbles may be feasible in some cases, as it was soon collide with reality and disappear, but it may be impossible to double the media point if shred hiring vanities, intentionality and marketing body subject touches the interests of the people, as soon it takes promotional space on social networking, which requires a serious follow – up media from the relevant authorities to what is said and published, addressing the media, especially since the surge in these days takes rising to undermine all that is beneficial to the country and the people.

In addition to talking about the subject, such as the position of the cash reserve is in fact a modern potentially more fallacies by what surrounds from a misunderstanding of monetary policy, To say that the cash reserve ratio should be reflected on the local currency’s value against foreign currencies seems to be true at first glance with it is a modern late frequently for damage to this reserve on the impact of the continuing work of the Central Bank daily auction to finance foreign trade in conjunction with the decline in the proportion of foreign currency revenues due to lower oil prices, since this reserve juxtaposition of about $80 billion before the oil collapse was not in the day the central database the lifting of the dinar exchange rate against the dollar to considerations relating to the price values of criticism about the economic reality, where the real sectors suffer from almost complete paralysis and market movement on the outer import and activates the parallel market as a result of lack of legal procedural system to the economy of a real market is complete, how can central bank submit the amendment to the value of the dinar equivalent to one dollar in these days? Are there there is no doubt this invitation?

On the other hand, the national currency trading outside the country would have a positive impact to buy more goods and services for the benefit of the country, but this will reflect negatively on the national economy unless there have the largest share in the gross domestic product, real sectors, as well as to raise the exchange rate would have a serious impact on both the consumer, the wages of labor and raw materials in the local market prices, which means the high cost of generating unit over imported counterparts, therefore damage the local product and disable it at a time when the government is seeking to activate all sectors in order to diversify revenue, therefore, our national currency will be a commodity in the speculative financial market as a haven winner no more at this stage or that, this would damage the monetary bloc, amounting to 40 trillion dinars only .. the national currency trading rates outside the country regarding the class basis in a solid economy (diversified economy revenue of rising contribution of all sectors, particularly the real sector in the gross domestic product, along with the importance of higher cash income rates in the external balance and stability of payments in the monetary system as well as financial openness, which contribute significantly to the circulation rates, which requires the presence of a healthy banking system simulates the existing developments in the global banking industry, not necessarily the high value of the currency, our guide the Japanese yen, because of Japan’s cash reserve 1.265 trillion as of the yen around 94 yen to the dollar as the Japanese government is trying with all its capabilities should not make yen rises against the dollar because every cent rise in which the yen is causing big losses for the Japanese economy, meaning that the reserve does not necessarily mean that is reflected in the rise in the exchange rate of the local currency, as this would be determined by economic data.
