    Argentina shouldn't get too excited.....any sign of it going against them and France will put up the white flag and bail out. Mexico is only in it as an agreement to send the narcos to Nordelta (donde la gente vive bien) in Buenos Aires and Brazil may want to use a couple of stadiums if they don't get theirs finished before June. Not exactly a formidable alliance.

    We don't need them to win anyway. Argentina stands up against the alliance of the entire combined forces of the planet in trade, in debt, and in other areas, simultaneously.

    And you are still losing, my dastardly Anglo.

    If you paid your debts you would not be having to go with a begging bowl to find money. How would you like it if I borrowed money from you and then I said I will only pay you 30% of it back. I bet you wont answer.

    These briefs are meaningless. They are about as relevant as an opinion piece in a newspaper.
    There is so much happening in the next 3 months it is hard to keep track of it all!
    The next 3-6 months will be very telling on how CFK finishes her mandate.
    It may get very bad very quickly.

    There is no way that CFK could get an agreement with PC or IMF with an outstanding judgement and a SCOTUS ruling. Which mean absolutely no Int'l financing would be available until it is paid in full, with interest and penalties and most likely legal fees.

    I wonder if NML could seize the YPF shares held by the Gov't? Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants. Bahahahaha

    @2 So funny. Who in their right mind would listen to Brazil (incapable of building a few stadiums, racked with corruption and riots), France (on the edge of bankruptcy and economic collapse) or Mexico (crime-ridden, drug-ridden, corruption-ridden, poverty-ridden). Not one has an ounce of credibility. Anybody want to post a list of credible places? The UK is one. The USA is another. Out of 193 UN members, only about 5 are “credible”.

    Consumption, one of the last pillars of Kirchnerist power is now falling due to the inflation completaly out taking increases of salaries, pensions and welfare subsidies. Of course this will chill out inflation so I can assume the gov't is going to make a big farse and Think et al are going to come round here and claim how effectively Kicillof is tackling it with pricce controls..... But they are not. Its run out of their control

    Just make her pay the dam debt, if she wont pay, either send in the bailiffs [if there is anything left to take ]
    or don't do business with them , stop giving her freebies, stop giving her hope, put an embargo on the old plastic bag,

    after all, would she not do the same to us...?

    'Dastardly'- great word - reminds me of the Wacky Races and Catch the Pigeon cartoons.
