Economic experts asserted that the political stability has consequential impacts in attracting foreign investments to Iraq, given the fact that Iraq needs tens of billions of dollars to rebuild its cities.
Other economists believe that Iraq is the only country whose economy is contingent upon the existence of a stable state. This is because, with no state, there will be no laws.
Furthermore, there are influential people who are close to decision-makers that don’t encourage the development of the economy. Therefore, the economic status quo has always been ruled by only central decisions and is impacted by political events.
