David Butter on Iraq
Last quote by David Butter on Iraq
When it really came to the fore in July 2014, it had already developed financing streams within Iraq from protection money and from under-the-radar taxation. There was a very broad tax base on farmers and traders ... anything that moved would be taxed, and even things that didn't move. A great deal will depend on effective governance in areas [liberated from ISIS]. But it is still quite a mess. There are a lot of people pushing ISIS-style ideology and they may find some receptiveness in Iraq if the country continues to be governed in the way it has been.feedback
