The author focuses on securing Iraq's prosperity as the next critical goal after ensuring its population's safety. He states that it was good to hear U.S. President George W. Bush say that Iraq will be enacting legislation to share its oil wealth with each Iraqi citizen. He believes Iraq should be encouraged to adopt a currency board to fight potentially destructive inflation. He claims that prosperity and letting every Iraqi get a cut of the country's oil money would permit a diffusion of political power from the center.
