    In other words the money is on the move. As the advanced economies recover and grow, currencies will fall in emerging economies, increasing inflation. Not good news for Argentina as if it needed any more bad news.

    “What will concern them is that their fate rests to an extent in the hands of a massively powerful financial institution, the US Federal Reserve, over which they have no influence and which has no responsibility to take account of their needs.”

    The party of cheap money in the world is not over but the tendency is reverting and the booze is starting to run out and the people are leaving.... Bolivia and Argentina should become efficient and do the painful changes that need to be done urgently and abandon populism and corruption for good... Why is it that the worst ever government of Argentina had by chance the coincidence of existing during best international context in more than 100 years?? 900.000 million USD that came into the Argentine state coffers in the last 10 years, ALL GONE
