Like every other Wise Bread writer, I hate debt. Although my debt doesn’t keep me awake at night, it is one of the things I think about while brushing my teeth every morning. “What will I do today (brush-brush) that will help me pay down (brush) my home mortgage ahead of (brush) schedule?”
The idea that “many people would rather struggle to pay off a large credit card bill than utter the phrase 'I can’t afford it,'” tests the limits of my financial imagination like a velociraptor tests an electric fence.
It’s so painful, yet I can’t stop thinking about it. Spending money that you don’t have is a type of self-harm that often goes undetected and can have lifelong consequences. (See also: The Enemies of Frugality)

Don961: Dr.. Amer Al-Adh *: Analysis and criticism of monetary policy in Iraq
BY IRAQI NETWORK OF ECONOMISTS- POSTED ON 06/06/2018
This paper seeks to summarize views on Iraqi monetary policy. This research found an inverse relationship between the support of the dollar exchange rate and the price level. The reverse relationship was characterized by the reduction of the dollar exchange rate by one thousand dinars raises the price level by an estimated 690 Iraqi dinars.
This means that the policy of monetary sterilization is counterproductive to the desired policy of fighting inflation. This conclusion is based on data between 2010 and 2015 issued by the Central Bank of Iraq, and the direct cost of the dollar support policy was set at at least 11,062,702,152.15 (more than eleven billion) US dollars.
The main cause of inflation in the Iraqi market is the real side and the high cost of production, employment, incomes, and commodity flows, because of the lack of rule of law and low productivity.
