    Can someone explain what these are exactly? Been trying to look around but can't find out. From what I can see they are bonds issued but provinces to pay for wages by why the need to issue them?

    4. It is a quasi-currency issued by the various provinces, I think patacones were only from BA the other provinces called them something else.

    Basically it shows their economic system is in failure.

    Cheers. So, by issuing these we are saying that they are unable to fund in Pesos (as they don't have a surplus (actually a massive deficit in the provinces)). They can't print more Pesos as the supply of this is controlled by the central bank so, to make sure that they don't declare themselves bust and the make sure that people get “paid”, they are funding in a quasi-currency which will then be redeemed later by each individual province (principal and with a decent coupon)? Is this madness? What do people on the ground think of this? Surely even the most hardened “K” will realise that there is something fundamentally wrong with the economic system once these come into circulation...

    9. BA province is by far the largest, they ran out of $ in Jan. They issued bonds to pay their suppliers who were owed 6 months of invoices, so they had enough pesos to pay the 2 month back pay for the employees.
    Now there are 4 provinces openly contemplating issuing the patacones because they are out of $ and can not find any buyers for their bonds due to the YPF seizure.
    The system is in shut down it is going to be very scary this winter, no gas, no heat, no money.
    They are talking about CKF reelection but I doubt she will make it through the year. I hope she has her safe house in Miami ready.

    Stagflation.(now).. devaluation (I think 10/1 but rumors are 16/1) hyper inflation( already predicting 30%+ w/o devaluation!)...depression

Am going to be in patagonia visiting the family in August-September so it looks like i'll have to couple of extra coats against the cold. That is in 4-5 months so it will be interesting to see what the situation is like on the ground in the middle of winter.

    12. I read most of the Arg daily newspapers all of this was reported in January. Since RGs don't understand economics they are still thinking all is well and will be completely taken by surprise when it all collapses.

    My friend's parents told him that it is so dangerous now they don't like to walk in their neighborhood because so many people are getting mugged and they live in the Northern Suburbs of BA. There were also 20 bank robberies in BA last week!

    @14 Why would you rob a bank to get pesos? You'd be better robbing a paper shop because then at least someone can print on the paper.

    ... or a organic butchers, artisan bakers or boutique candlestick-makers.

    Robbing a bank for cash is a rubbish idea in Argentina.

    14 - That is something is noticed. Impossible to talk about ecomonics most of the time as every economic statement is politically loaded so much so the the economic message gets lost. A case in point is a piec in Pagina 12 about the expropriation. Basically saying that it was the right thing to do and that the move brings it into line with other states and that quasi state/private production works. What it fails to address is the fact that (post expropriation) it will be very difficult to make the economic case to any corporation that investing in YPF is viable or prudent. They just skate over not understanding that this is a major stumbling block. Also, a number of corporations (in the UK and elswhere) have to comply with a equivalent of 172 of the Companies Act stating that each investment/transaction is “in the best interests of the shaerholders as a whole”. It will be impossible for a number of boards to do this and, if there were to sign off on this provisions anyway, they would break domestic law and be barred from being directors. So, most corporations couldn't even invest if they wanted to. The rammifications of the YPF action run very deep (and can I assume that the patacones move is a direct result of not be able to issue standard bonds)?

    Believe me when I say that not all Argentines have their heads in the sand in regards to their pending economic collapse. It's not that they don't care, they are just accustomed to chaos and understand that there is little that can be done to stop it. The Argentines that I know are hording dollars and preparing for the inevitable....but they aren't worried about it. They shrug their shoulders and wait. It's a 'normal' part of life here. You make as much money as you can when the economy expands, trade for dollars, survive the next crisis and start over again. Normal.

    27. The difference between the next crash and the previous ones is that in the past the USA wanted a stable Argentina to keep SA stable. Now we don't care there will be no money coming from IMF or USA and I think WB and IDB will also start to withhold funding shortly due to the lack of IMF audits.

    The impending collapse will be spectacular and last a long long time.

The messaging is about the contstitution not reflecting the current popular feeling in Argentina and they want to remove bureaucracy by changing the parliamentary system to fit.

    I’m hearing that the cream bun will be partly subsidised by the government for the next ten years. It will also be the only thing put in the basket for inflationary purposes (as it is the only constant) and later the subsidies will be taken away for corporations and extra money pumped into keeping the cream bun at same price it has been for the last 10 years thus showing that inflation is not rising and has not risen for 10 years. It will be called the CBMK Index. Sensible policies for a better Argentina.

    #46 I think the reason that the anti-k's are dominant on this particular thread is that its they (you) who make all the running on conspiracy theories and scaremongering about Maximo. To spell it out, I said maximo for Congress makes sense because its a realistic, relatively junior, position, an antidote to the madcap idea that he's going to be made President a la Kim Jong-Un. If my Queen insists on standing down, there are others who can continue her work without resorting to heredity, like the up and coming young Kicillof, but I think the smart money must be on re-election, at least give the people the chance of re-electing the heroine of oil nationalisation, and I think they will take it =)

    Justicialist Party May Day Celebrated

    Buenos Aires, May 1 (Buenos Aires Herald) -- The dear respected Maximo Fernández made a congratulatory speech at the Justicialist Party parade celebrating the brave workers of Argentina on the May Day holiday. His speech has enjoyed great public response as it was vibrant with superb intelligence and iron will and gives clear-cut answers to questions arising in building a thriving nation.
    In particular, his statement that “Our party and the government of the Justicialist Party will join hands with anyone who sincerely wishes the reunification of the country and peace and prosperity of the nation, and make responsible and persevering efforts to realize the historic cause of national reunification with our brothers held captive in the Malvinas Islands” instills in the minds of all Argentinians the conviction of sure victory in national reunification with them.
    Maximo Fernández was evidently making a reminder of the tireless work of his mother, Dear Leader, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who has called for national unity before anything else and led all patriotic-minded Argentinians to the efforts for national reunification with the Islas Malvinas.
    This statement also made people recall the bold and fearless leadership, of his father, the late Great Leader President Néstor Kirchner as well who declared that Argentina would join hands under the banner of great national unity with government authorities or ruling and opposition party officials, politicians and Argentine workers, if they value the common interests of the nation and want national reunification with the illegally held rightful territory of Argentina.
    The idea of on great national unity and their lofty personalities and patriotism of Presidents Cristina Fernández and the great leader President Néstor Kirchner, have served as a source of strength enabling all Argentinians to turn out in the drive for national unity and reunification.

    #71 You know, we really should not be making fun of this national tragedy, but it really is mind boggling that the Argentines would fall for this.

    All this talk of the Peronists looking for ways by which Mrs K could stand again, plus the grooming of the son as heir apparent, suggests that Argentina is well on its way down that slippery slope that leads to dictatorship. Still, if they want to join the likes of Cuba, North Korea and Syria, that's up to them.

    I think there is a lot of people got the wrong end of the stick. 'Preparing the Ground' for Maximo merely refers to the steel reinforcement works they had to make to the stage at Stadium to accommodate him.
