    “Private economic analysts claim the government continues to underreport real inflation.”
    “Consumer groups, opposition politicians and renegade statistics workers accuse Argentina's government of under-reporting inflation for the past four years for political gain as well as to save on inflation-linked bond payments.”

    This is a copy paste of La Nación Mixtured with Clarin.

    They don’t like the figures of INDEC, they don’t like CEPAL and now they don’t like IMF.

    Why we don’t let Clarin, La Nacion to put inflation to 500% and stop talking about this for lets say 15 years?

    Seems they are desperate as Clarin had a reverse in the justice who gives the reason to the govt.

    Haha nice to see liars like this falling a lesson to be learn in the media business.

    “ ... Local press attributed the government's sudden decision to approach the IMF as a concession to avoid sanctions for its refusal to submit to the Article IV consultation.....”

    “Page Unavailable
    The document you requested either no longer exists or is not currently available.” WSJ says

    So anyway can you tell me what would be such sanctions?

    Oh yes the IMF will..., will..., will... do nothing we (Members) support the IMF like a club these good for nothing cost to us U$s 3.32 billions.

    So may be we should get out of this scam and save that money to be use in defense for example.

    What do you think?

    Sorry about the link Dim, worked fine earlier.

    As for sanction, no idea.

    As for your 'defence' expediture, well you currently spend only slightly more than Surinam (where?) so you could probably do with the cash :-)

    Well some spend a lot and cannot win a war against nations without a proper army.

    3.32 billions enough to buy 60 jet fighters SU 35 and MIG 35 full equipped to sink some fleet in decadence from a little Island.

    Value for money
