At the door of the Rafidain Bank, the government hundreds of people stand in a long queue to buy the dollar after the bank allowed every Iraqi intended to travel to purchase $ 5,000 at a subsidized price of the Central Bank of Iraq and the value of 1900 dinars per dollar.

Iraqi dinar is witnessing weeks ago marked decline before the dollar value returned by economists and Vice specialists in regard to financial and political factors and other financial security because of the growing phenomenon of dollar smuggling out of the country.

Central bank sells every citizen intended to travel 5000 dollars at 1900 dinars per dollar, while it sells banking offices at 1126 dinars, but currency brokers and owners have invested banking offices the opportunity to get hard currency.

The problem facing the forex market in Iraq, they are not subject to certain controls, and simply endless Anyone in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities to get the dollar through hundreds of banking companies unlicensed or by the owners of stalls on the sidewalks, and does not cost much more than wages.

Kazem recognizes Jassim, the owner of a small office for banking in the Mansour district in Baghdad, that his work is not subject to censorship by the government or the central bank.

He says that "to obtain a license by the Bank require a lot of regulatory approvals and subject to favoritism and that preferred to work without a license seven years ago."

These accusations of Representatives centered on how to manage the central bank, and procedures that do not live up to the required level befitting the national economy, according to the expression of some of them.
