Most economic experts believe that perfect coordination between Iraqi government and Iraqi Central Bank can play a significant role in financing the budget deficit and providing credit to the Iraqi government. The Iraqi government has its legal right in the board of directors of CBI and the only authority to appoint and remove the governor of Iraqi Central Bank including various other roles. A famous economist Antoine said that many economists have confirmed more obvious role of the Central Bank of Iraq, when Iraqi government is unable to finance public expenses by traditional measures of taxation or by reduction in the government expenditures. The trend of restoring financial policy according to non-traditional order in financing the budget deficit by printing currency and borrowing from banking system would lead to an increase in the prices at general levels. So, it is essential to impose restrictions on provided credit by the CBI to Iraqi government.
