    What does that mean, “censured”. What happened to Argentina for that?

    “the censure decision has the potential to open the way for the Latin American country to lose its voting rights or membership at the IMF.”

    In other words, the IMF didn't lift a finger, they just used a serious sounding word.

    Bullshit from the IMF regarding censures.

    They will do nothing against The Dark Country.

    Argentina is laying the ground for borrowing money again. Followed 10 years later by another default.

    Argentina, spending other people's money since 1810.

    Never have we seen the desperation of and organisation like the mighty IMF,
    So desperate to give ones money away, as if they are swimming in it,

    If they don’t give to em very soon, no doubt mr Cameron will,

    Still
    With so much of the worlds money to give away,
    Why not give some of it the Philippines as they are desperate right now..

    [ IMF, very shamfull ].

    “What does that mean, “censured”. What happened to Argentina for that?”

    Absolutely nothing and nothing have changed since then so this is another Soap Opera from IMF.

    The some numbers and statistics that before were bad now seem to start to be good.

    @Briton

    Of course you are right argies planed to borrow at least 20 millions dollar per head (including me) and the make a “God pays”

    Ha ha

    Argentina will have reduced funding from the only 2 banks that are currently loaning them U$, IDB and WB will cut funding in 2014.

    If at the next meeting IMF chooses to suspend membership they will have no further funding from either and will possible be removed.
    The wheels of large bureaucracies turn slowly both ways. So once they are kicked out I don't see them getting back in quickly either.

    It's a dangerous game CFK is playing with the lives of 40MM people.
    I hope they all realize it, but I think that most of them are as dumb as Dany.

    Dany, When you figure out the difference between a freight train and a passenger train maybe you feeble attempts at insults may have some meaning.
    Your too stupid to bother with.

    I pulled up this MercoPress article from 9/2012 about the IMF and INDEC:

    http://en.mercopress.com/2012/09/24/imf-warns-argentina-on-stats-next-time-december-17-it-s-a-red-card#comment167401

    It seems the IMF brought this up with the Argentine administration in 2/2012.
