    Amazing that the embrace of many orthodox economic policies is now bearing fruit.

    So much time could have been saved if this had happened earlier. Clever it usually takes an economic crisis, whether actual or potential, to harden a government's resolve to take unpopular though needed reforms and changes.

    This lad Kicillof is hot, hot , hoooot...

    Amazing how this lad, Kicillof, embracing popular heterodox economic policies has managed during his few months in office to stop the Financial World's Vultures & Bloodsuckers speculative attack against my beloved Argieland by...:
    a) Getting us out of the “ICSID” quagmire…
    b) Getting us out of the “INDEC” quagmire…
    c) Getting us out of the “PARIS CLUB” quagmire…
    d) Getting us out of the “YPF-REPSOL” quagmire…

    All of the above whilst applying popular inclusive heterodox economic policies in Argieland like…:
    1) Almost stopping food inflation through his “Precios Cuidados” program...
    2) Including more than 600,000 older Argentinean into the National Pension System…
    3) Raising the ”Per Child Allowance” with nearly 50%...
    4) Keeping unemployment down…

    Today, even the Mighty USof A bows for this man…

    PS…: (for Anglolatino and other fairies out there)
    Did I mention that he’s much cuter in person than in pictures?

    @2 Oh dear. The equivalent of “heterodox” is “dissident”. Thus “popular inclusive heterodox economic policies” becomes meaningless gobbledegook. What are those “policies”? Nothing that's going to cost him anything! How come you don't reside in your “Beloved Argentina”? Something to do with typical argie cowardice and selfishness?

    How would you “Think” that “the Mighty USof A bows for this man? If it's bent at the waist it's because it's laughing itself sick.

    ”Did I mention that he’s much cuter in person than in pictures?“ Surely you need some ”perspective“. Very difficult to get perspective whilst down on your knees gobbling his cock and licking his balls. Or do you get a better ”perspective” on your knees looking between your legs as he thrusts home? Is it better than that plastic thing CFK used to shaft you?

    Who's a fairy? Everybody like you!

    If someone had done what Kicillof is doing 10 years ago, there would have been no “lost decade”, millions wouldn't have fallen into poverty and the pat on the back from Uncle Sam would have come sooner.

    Good boy Axel, sticking to the plan:

    Yeah, I've heard how “good” dong business in Argentina is. Look out for the corrupt work office getting together with “workers” you've never heard of to put a claim in.

    As sooner the Ks are to December 2015 the more investment expectations there will be.

    You say...:

    I say...:
    Probably... but ten years ago he was still in Kindergarten...

    @1, 4


    Really? Let me see... Ever since EUia and the USA have been “praising” Argentina, economic conditions have deteriorated rapidly. In the 10 years when EUia and the USA blasted Argentina, there was unprecedented growth.

    The embrace of orthodox economics bearing fruit? Yeah... where?

    You two need help. You both know exactly that if these policies continue the country will be utterly ruined. Which is what both of you want to see obviously.

    So why then is Sillyoff doing them now?????
    Is it:

    a) He is a complete idiot with no idea of what he is doing.
    b) Knows he is trashing the country, but doesn’t care as he is making loads from it, somewhere along the line.
    c) Other (i.e. “only following orders”).

    He has just probably been misguided.

    Here is the wonderful capitalist system at work:

    THEY (corporations) can fire you whenever they want and pay you whatever they feel, and work you overtime no pay, and you don't even get a lunch break to eat!!

    You have to accept and now on top of it must give up your freedom to not only choose another company to work for, you are banned FOR months to years after!!!

    What an absurd tyranny USA and EU have become. And then they BAIL OUT these “people”, socializing their loses. When the companies make cash again, they privatize the profits and don't share with the people.

    Seriously, what a completely abhorrent, immoral, unjust, and rotten system.

    Thank you, but we'll skip it in Argentina.

    But it's all going tits-up when The Dark Country fails to pay at the first hurdle.

    This yank must be on something if he believes this crap!

    You have missed the “n” out between the “u” and the “t”.

    The Obama administration will preffer that things kept quiet and CFK gets another year of grace. They dont want another Venezuela.
    They know that the continent is becoming more pragmatic and less anti american than it was a decade ago so they will rather wait more...

    Besides even if they dont believe the Ks or not they just like to keep them in their good graces.

    Im confused.... I thought Argentina didnt need approval from any other country especially beyond LATAM. All these arse kissing measures are because the KFC government is DESPERATE for funds. Remember the uber arrogance of the KFC mob of just a year ago? Chavez going and the cracks really starting to open up has made them noivus.

    ZERO political integrity.

    I knew that the Argentines would do the right thing.... After they had tried everything else!
    Looks like the IMF will tolerate Argentina's modest manipulation of the economic data as well, so long as it remotely looks credible. Let's see where this takes them, they have reduced liquidity, have risen interest rates to a more realistic level (still negative rates though), are slowly withdrawing subsidies, and are talking steps to pay their debt so they can borrow from the international markets. Will stay tuned.
    All they need now is to negotiate with the Brits using the Pope as an intermediary, maybe they could get West Falkland????

    @13, you are without a doubt the most ignorant person in the planet. None of what you said is true, (oh but I am sure you can find everthing telling me I am wrong on the internet, becuase eveything on the internet is true), with that being said, I cannot wait for your response witha link to a “truthful” site. Grow up and realie that Che “Communisum” does not work, ever.
