Newsweek: Iraq's Economy Booming
The Good News is the "Mother of All Surprises"
12/19/2006 3:56 PM ET
You won't find the story in the U.S. edition of Newsweek, but this week's international edition of Newsweek features a story headlined: "In what might be called the mother of all surprises, Iraq's economy is growing strong, even booming in places." While there are some gaping holes in this story -- most of the boom is happening outside Baghdad, where many positive economic trends are attributable to security-related spending -- it's an enlightening read that offers a rare sense of things going right in Iraq.
