    9.5 billion dollars doesn't sound an awful lot in these days of trillion dollar debts. Loose change really. Argyland should just pay up and move on.

    The talks are a waste of time - whatever Argentina promises they will not be able to pay. They're running out of everything but pesos.

    @3 It is a lot if the fundamental pillars of the economy are being undermined by poor policy. That would account for CFK's entire retirement fund.

    I thought it was a done deal?

    By the way Kickitoff came back waving to the crowds of La Camping-It-Up thugs that were at the airport you would have thought he “had saved the world” just like The Cunt Brown © Jeremy Clarkson 2010 was supposed to have done over the sub-prime scandal.

    Bet it has the same result, bollocks!

    Don’t you just love the argies! Ha, ha, ha.

    Everyone, and I mean everyone is going to look conciliatory while they slow walk any type of negotiations in the hopes they can drag them out until the Ks are gone.
    Same thing she did with the holdouts
    What comes around goes around.

    Record underemployment in Germany
    Strikes in the UK
    Sharp drop in housing in France
    0% growth in Italy
    still record unemployment in Spain
    plunging stocks in US due to slowdown fears (slowdown from what? did they ever even grow after the massive recession?!?)

    But lets all talk about Argentina, that will surely solve OUR problems back home!

    Narine/ daddy dearest gagging you again with his skin flute he makes you play? You've brain damage.

    You do know the “Plunging stocks” are because the developing countries economies are in the shits.

    Februruary 6th...2014..what is todays date?

    I suggest you read this one of thousands of articles today. The difference in what you bring up and deflect and try to change this article with the economics in SA is that this is not destroying the economy as Argentine's know it. Only you are clueless as you've never left your mommies basement and traveled in this world to see it first hand. You're one pathetic dupe tobi. Stick to what you know....your .mommas nipples and daddies foreskin.

    Read the article again. What's it about? So why shouldn't comments on this page be focused on Argentina?

    How're your plans for an isolated Argentina protected by a defence shield going? Let's talk about that.

    If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen instead of crying like a baby.

    @9 I wonder what you are trying to convey? Do you have aspirations as a headline writer? However, the Paris Club has had experience of argieland since 1956. I doubt some ridiculous offer of some bonds will get argieland anywhere. The Club will want real money. It might accept some argie assets. Provided that there are, and can be, no constraints. I judge that, if it accepts argie assets, it would be on the basis that they would be assets that could be sold whenever the Club chooses. There would be conditions, probably backed up by sanctions, to ensure argieland couldn't “move the goalposts”. Trying to figure what argieland might have worth US$9.5 billion plus interest. Call it US$15.5 billion. That's only 5% compound interest for 10 years. Quite reasonable.

    Strikes in the UK,? One tube strike in London, is not a UK matter, it is a localised matter to central London and will be over in no time.

    I can't find much info on the postal service here. I tried to post letters to Europe and i was told (after queuing for a lifetime) they are not sending out ANY post.
    Put's the ketchup situation in the shade.....
