Wadih al-Hanal *
In light of the current globalization system in all countries of the world, and the liberalization of the bulk of global trade, and in light of the movement of money and international currencies between the countries of the world in line with the movement of international trade between countries,

the acquisition is the term reserve and facilities for these activities and linked to the equation of return and risk, Money is moving among countries for investment, so there is a so-called foreign investment.

And that one of the main risks to investment is the so-called exchange rate among them in the world, because what matters to foreign investors is to ensure that the loss due to instability of the exchange rate (the so-called evaporation of the actual value of the currency) and thus non-operating losses that may result in revenue or Due to the decline in exchange rates between them.

It is also known that the exchange rate is the rate on which the exchange of foreign exchange is based on the national (local) currency, the number of monetary units in which a unit of local currency is exchanged to another foreign currency.

The exchange rate in any country is directly linked to the reserves of foreign currencies in question, and therefore its close correlation with the volume of export activity of any country (because foreign exchange earnings).

The balance of payments balance (the balance of foreign trade and the balance of current transactions) is very important. The deficit in the trade balance necessarily leads to a decrease in the exchange rate.

This stability leads to stability in production inputs and products, as well as reducing inflation and stabilizing interest rates. It has a direct impact on the profitability of export industries and the cost of imported resources.

Hence, it is important to make the exchange rate stability a tool for controlling foreign trade in order to attract greater volume of foreign direct investment, because the reassurance of global investors on their capital and financial assets from the risk of erosion is a major attraction for these investments, as well as length of investment possible.

However, it is also necessary to bear in mind that the exchange rate is not a tool independent of other factors in the economy but that all macroeconomic policies must be consistent with one another, and the need to continue to direct the exchange rate to a uniform price between the official market and the
market .

Trading currencies


One of the most prominent features of globalization is its economy, which is based on the return on capital, which is more than the return of economic growth.

This is known in the G8 or G-20 economy, which generally manages the international economy in their favor first to export this type of trading in the currency.

When these processes flourish in fragile economies, the parties to the relationship become unequal and the fragility and developmental blockage is in favor of adults.

We now have a currency that is not previously known by the current monetary capital authority that has swept the development field and is keeping pace with the pattern managed and organized by the
giant economies .

What does this mean economically as results? First, the increase of non-wage earning forces is the main beneficiary and the consequences of this are very large as they help to increase the demand for hard currency is not known fate is not for import because it is open wide, and it is not to establish projects as our currency still enjoys excellent exchange rate.

The dollar is not for treatment, travel or study, and the other is the transfer of personal hooves.

Which accounts for 75 percent of the cash mass to this new currency market and the shift of the hard currency hoards to raise the value of the dollar at the expense of the dinar; as well as the monetary interactions that he ordered left to the monetary authority to deal with
its consequences.

As we are in a fragile economy and owe more than $ 100 billion and need to rebuild more than $ 120 billion, the flow of foreign currency has a direct impact on achieving our very urgent economic goals, and the profitable forces behind this new currency market will grow

to include All employees through consumer associations and even retirees and to sting their consumptive feelings in the discharge of accumulated droughts, these activities promote the stagnation of wages in general, which exacerbates poverty and decline
in incomes.

Therefore, immediate treatment at the court of monetary authority first and seriously think of strategic policies to preserve our monetary independence by developing skills and new products in banks within an eco-economic system that is positive to diversify our savings within our economic cycle.
