    So, if there is no issue then this is a policy decision rather “dollar clamp” issue. As such, can we expect more interest and capital payments to be pesified. It seems to be that this will probabbly be the case.

    “All of the bonds under national regulation should be paid in pesos, as marked by the Central Bank rules,”

    This is fine and I am behind it, however, I expect that the bonds will have to be peso bonds, not dollar. Given inflation, this will make no sense to those issuing the bonds or those buying them. I don't think they have understood that people will not buy US$ denominated bonds if they are going to be paid back in pesos...

    If you pesify the economy that is your choice, however, there will be economic consequences.

    I'm guessing if the Provinces or State has to issues Peso denominated bonds the interest rate they would need to offer needs to be above inflation rate and expected peso depreciation...what's that 100%, 500%? Who knows!

    I told you months ago this was going to be fun to watch!

    I pity the grown-ups that are going to have to come in afterwards and clear up the mess. With CFK and co (if not in jail) sitting on the sidelines making comments such as “well we didn't have these problems when we were in government” and being so mind numbingly arrogant/stupid to believe themselves.

    Now that asslips avoided a coup.....for now, Seems another protest/strike is about to begin.....bus drivers. Man O man, does it never end there? Children taking over schools....CTA demanding better wages and calling for a national strike....uniform services work stoppages because they cut 70% wages, grabage collectors went on strike, asslips expropriates an oil company and runs it into the ground for lack of investment funds, debt collectors takes possession of a naval training vessel, bond prices plunge becuase chaco defualted by paying international bonds in pesos......where does it end! With a rope around her ankles hanging our the balconey of La Casa Rosa. Everything that asslips touched she has turned to trash. Her ego is the “Death of a Nation”

    #5 Cristina and her supporters will never be sitting on the sidelines, they will ever be providing government of the people, for the people, by the people, or else fighting tooth and nail with any usurpers who try to disenfranchise the people and throw the continent back into another neoliberal dark age
