    What even is a 0% bond? 0% of anything is nothing but I can't believe they're wanting to get nothing back!

    better no gain but secured money, than losing EVERYTHING while buying argentine bonds. That's probably the thought of the investors.

    Germany says “thank you” to Argentina for granting them these conditions. The reward for trustful, due-fullfilling and responsable governments. Simply said, something that goes beyond your Kirchnerist world... its only consequent that you can't believe it.

    0% extra return is perhaps believable, I read the article quickly and imagined that to multiply anything by 0% is to wipe it out entirely and rather obtusely made the point that can't be what they're talking about!
