Abstract
The change of political regime in 2003 sets the beginning of a new era for the Iraqi economy. Certainly the United States and the rest of the world is hoping that with a fresh start the country will finally be able to unleash the considerable economic potential locked up in the nation's oil and gas reserves, in its agricultural land, abundant water and relatively well-educated labor force. This document examines what strategy Iraqi authorities can put in place that offers some hope in avoiding the spectrum of problems that have plagued almost all other developing country oil exporters.
