The US Supreme Court will reveal its decision on Argentina's request regarding litigation with the hedge funds case on Monday at 10.30am, after deliberating on Friday behind closed doors. A final outcome could arrive as late as next year though, if the judges decide to ask the US government for an opinion on the case before ruling. Read full article

    It seems this will be decided on the basis of politics rather than law whichever way it goes.

    So, will SCOTUS support the crooks or the good guys? It strikes me that there's a “split”. Isn't Kicillof's comment instructive? “lawyers and bankers that want countries to bankrupt by buying a worthless bond” and then demand to be paid off with “1,600% of profit”. Isn't that an admission that the bond was always “worthless”? But isn't argieland paying the “non-holdouts”? So it's not worthless, is it?

    IF argieland had dealt honestly with the bondholders in the first place, it wouldn't have a problem. It might not have been able to sling money around so freely, but that's what happens when you've borrowed. In my opinion, SCOTUS should call argieland's bluff. And it is a bluff. If SCOTUS declines to take the case, it goes back to Judge Griesa. And the Paris Club, IMF, World Bank will have to think again. What fun! Maybe there won't be any export credits after all? Maybe there won't be any loans?

    No matter how SCOTUS rules Argentina will have to come to an agreement with the holdouts before they can get any Int'l loans.

    Probably another years wait at the very least for the financially foolhardy holdouts.
    And who knows how long after that.

    Argentina is never paying. Nothing to pay. It's our money because we defaulted.

    Argentina’s nightmare default, this since 2002 ongoing HORROR must finally have an end!!!We, the holdouts, have been suffering for more than a decade!!
    Since 2002, Argentina has not paid a cent to the holdouts!
    Most of the Holdouts are “before default buyer”, who have bought their bonds at an average of 100% or even higher. That is why we cannot accept similar offers as they were in 2005 and 2010.
    It would be a historic event, and the whole world would be very pleased, if the government of Cristina Kirchner finished this since 2002 ongoing NIGHTMARE-DEFAULT!

    In the “Pari Passu” issue the Holdouts are 100% right! There is nothing to discuss. In the bond contracts “Pari Passu” is clear defined. Also, in the bond contracts Argentina has explicitly waived its sovereign immunity.
    It would be helpful, if the US Supreme Court rejected ASAP Argentina’s unjustified appeal. Then, Argentina and the holdouts could immediately negotiate a solution.
    The best scenario for the Holdouts (and finally also for Argentina) would be, if the court rejected the case. If this happens, the government of Cristina Kirchner and the Holdouts would be forced to sit down and negotiate immediately an acceptable solution.
    Probably under the review of Judge Griesa, who also invited Argentina and the Holdouts to negotiate a solution.

    If the decision goes against Argentina then they will implement 'pari pasau' and pay zero dollars on all bonds. So how will the decision force Argentina to negotiate?

    You're out of touch. There is a European Commission vice president in BA right now offering credits.

    At what rates?
    Offering? Maybe. No deals yet.
    probably waiting on the outcome of SCOTUS.
    Your screen name is a misnomer and you are the one out of touch.

    What does that mean? - please explain- your statement is too short and can be interpreted different ways.

    Well, that's lovely for you. Well done you.

    Not sure why you are telling me though. Or why you think I am interested in how you wish to label your self. (93% of what? Fish? A nonsensical statement)

    @15 If you're one of the 93%, I understand your position. You're a stupid idiot who caved under criminal duress and now wants everyone else to suffer. A short description of you would be “spineless coward”. Therefore you are in no way “british”. Change your “name” to “suicide bombless”. If you were British, you would be shame personified.
