Iraqi Currency

NPR's Renee Montagne discusses the future of Iraq's currency with Torek Faradi, who helped Afghanistan's central bank change its currency after the U.S. invasion and overthrow of the Taliban. Faradi says Iraqis have the opportunity to create a banking system and currency that could unite Iraq's disparate regions and ethnic groups. He is currently senior advisor at the Financial Services Volunteer Corps in New York.
