    I think this is wonderful.

    Brazil “We're putting in 5 pesos.”

    Paraguay “We can't manage that much. 2 pesos.”

    Colombia and Ecuador “ One peso for us. Between us.”

    Uruguay “We can manage 2 pesos. If Argentina pays back what it owes us.”

    Argentina “We need to re-trench. We need to take 15 pesos out.”
