    Indeed Stevie.

    Not long now until Argentina defaults, throwing it's people into extreme poverty.

    And after ALL of that - Argentina will still OWE the money AND interest accrued.

    Argentina will pay eventually. The hedge funds will just keep piling on the interest.

    But as Argentina fails, that can only be good for Uruguay, surely?

    If there's a place where a will to negotiate is a sign of weakness and lack of belief in your own case, it would be in a Court...

    @3 But crooked argieland doesn't “negotiate” does it? Did Nestor “negotiate” the debt restructuring? No! Only, this time, the opposition is tougher, has more money and is better at finance. And most of the world has turned against argieland, hasn't it?

    Personally, I hope Argentina drags this one out to last a Century.
    The debt restructuring was accepted by many, and the others sold their share to the vulture funds.
    Everybody got a deal except the vultures.
    I can live with that.

    Just like they were forced to pay ICSID judgments the Rgs will pay the holdouts.
    I've said for a long time, in the end Rg will negotiate payment the Billionaires are smarter and can outlast the gov't.
    I hope that they will be able to start to seize assets that Arg thinks are immune.
    That will be funny
    YPF stock anyone?

    You mean like Repsol going to Argentina and taking over the oil fields?

    Or merely telling yourself that that particular stock is someone elses?

    That would be funny indeed...

    Repsol will be paid, 51% of the YPF stock is owned by Arg but and there is a big but, its on the NYSE and Singer could take control of it by seizure if Arg loses AGAIN as Always in the NYC courts.
    It is just a matter of time.

    Repsol will get paid back soon enough they can also block the sale of oil from Vaca Muerte ( and what ever else they had stolen) once the cases get through the courts. No biggy they can wait out the ailing K regime.
