Iraqi Economy Expanding

With all the bangs and killings that are the daily diet of "news" from Iraq, ever wonder what most people are doing? Ever wonder about the Iraqi economy? Would it surprise you to know that:

Iraq's GDP per capita has more than doubled between 2003 and 2005. Compared to pre-war levels the increase was 31 percent. And the future looks bright. According to the Brookings Institution Iraq Index the Iraqi economy is expected to have a real GDP growth of 49 percent in the period 2006-2008."

I thought it would.
