The consortium of bankers have failed. Default stretches on and the noose gets tighter everyday.
I think it is hilarious that they've lowered the Inter-bank rate a point to drive lending and consumer spending. Is there really a noticeable difference between 27 and 28%? Really? I think not.
Banks are having to pay 58%, yes 58% to attract deposits. The end is nigh.
People are getting scared, there's a palpable feeling of doom, that the cycle is over and the crisis is upon them.
You can see it in the K supporters here they've had a definite change in tone since it is apparent to everyone where this is going.

They seem to concentrate in exalting the passions and emotions of the common masses with flags, cries, and traditional symbols, acts of force like blocking newspapers distributions, etc.
They have no idea of economics, they mismanage it by what is immediately seen, not the long term approach about attracting good business and deals. Poor country, poor people. Buenos Aires it is still a stronghold for reason though, where populism or peronism always looses.

Since we hold the money, whether anyone outside notices or not is irrelevant.

So unfortunately for you, Argentines hold the destiny of matters on the debt. You feckless foreigners do not. Now stop wasting Argentine oxygen with you rants.

Emanates from bilateral agreements between China and Argentina that obligations will be led by the law and the courts of England.
Minister Axel Kicillof gave banks and Chinese companies finance investments in Argentina a similar international legal protection to which the government questioned the vulture funds. The annexes to the treaties were signed, the Economy Minister agreed special jurisdiction to chinese firms and accepted the intervention of foreign courts to settle any potential disputes. This arises from the bilateral agreements which stipulates that obligations will be governed by the law and the courts of England.
Kicillof agreed to step down as “irrevocable and unconditional” objection raised to any future international tribunals chosen by Argentina and China.
The assignment of judicial sovereignty is explicit in loans for retrofitting “Belgrano Cargas”. The 1071 decree is already known and the extension of jurisdiction is located in the leafy Annex 400 folios. But the concessions would be similar in loans for hydroelectric megaprojects Santa Cruz and other financial agreements to be signed today with Xi Jinping methodology would have the same format as that included in the leonine agreement with Chevron.
Delivering Kicillof judicial sovereignty contradicts the “story” Cristina Kirchner's own against the clauses that were granted in foreign debt in favor of the courts of Manhattan, where the conflict is settled with vulture funds. Cristina made this a flag and questioned the previous governments that accepted external courts, like Thomas Griesa.

Sad to see Argentina in the throes of terminal decline. These 1930s style rallies are not a sign of strength but symptomatic of desperation and false belief.
In this modern age they are presenting nothing new but relying on outdated methods to encourage a deliberately misinformed and deliberately uneducated population.
Thankfully many other countries have moved on and all of those people can help inform the Argentines through the power of social media.
