ABSTRACT
The author argues in favor of the plan to set up autonomous regions in Iraq. The postponement of the plan until 2008 underscores the need for the U.S. to forcefully push the so-called Alaska solution. Under the solution, about a quarter of Alaska's oil and gas royalties goes into an entity called the Permanent Fund, the assets of which are managed by investment professionals. Adopting an Alaska solution would immeasurably strengthen Iraq's elected government.
