NPR's Bob Edwards talks to Peter McPherson about the introduction of a new currency in Iraq. McPherson is the former financial coordinator for U.S.-led efforts in Iraq, and he believes the new dinars now in circulation don't have much in common with their predecessors. McPherson explains how the differences will help rebuild Iraq's economy.
