    So, just out of curiosity, what mechanism are they going to use to peg the value of a Yuan in Pesos...?

    If the Peso free-falls the problem will remain the same

    Unless the Chinese are prepared to write off huge amounts of trade losses for political gains, of course...

    China doesn't know what to do with all the SOY they currently have stockpiled. They paid too much for it so they can't sell it. Gosh knows losing money is frowned upon in China.
    So what in the world are they going to buy from Argentina to “trade”?
    Or is this going to be 1 way trade until the U$600 line of credit is used up?
    yeah probably

    I also think its funny they say the Yuan is growning in use and is UP TO 1.6% of all International Trade. Pretty small.
    Does anyone use the Swiss Franc for trade?

    I thought CFK's protectionist policies to protect local manufacturing were restricting is she now making an exception to Chinese goods? It'll be interesting to see how industria argentina reacts to this.

    Taking everything written in the article into account, why can't argie importers pay in argie pesos? Why do they have to buy Chinese yuan first? Could it be that China makes more money out of selling yuan first? Hang on, Kickitoff is a Marxist. Is there a connection?

    It seems easy to understand, after all: The U.S. forced a second default on us. Then, Westinghouse is no longer an option for building our fourth nuclear central. The Chinese contract has already been signed. ROSATOM, probably, will be the candidate for the fifth. China and Russia will become our new partners. That will be the price for the protection of the vultures´ greed against the interest of 93% of our bondholders. And it´s only the beginning. We have got, in a pretty short time, that our special feud with the vultures has transformed in a world issue, and that our position has been adopted by a substantial majority of United Nations members. A result not probably foreseen for that self-propelled mummy known as Mr. Justice Griesa, his vulture masters, and perhaps even the State Department. South American reptilian cipays have been granted the pleasure of watching their respective governments backing Argentina with their votes; as it has been done by most of LATAM.

    Nobody can seem to tell me what China is going to buy from Argentina. I get Argentina needs a lot of stuff from China, China gave them a line of credit with a big interest rate attached so they're getting profit from the exports plus interest but what is Argentina selling them?
    Unprofitable Soy?
    Can they not see what's happened to Venezuela with these deals of last resort with China? Venezuela owes China 25 years of most of their oil production. How's that sustainable?
    Silly Marxists.
    They don't care if the population is poor as long as the leaders are rich and isolated.
    They never learn.

    Don't take the parochial view.
    China wants a strategic Antarctic and the waters in the Region; that includes the Southern America access. China thinks in Decades, not just for now.

    10. I have never understood why people think the Chinese are brilliant strategists. They are merely the buyer of last resort. They'll be lucky to be whole in a decade once the mass civil unrest moves to the East Coast they're done.

    World issue, your arrogance knows no bounds, the world doesn't give a flying fig that you lost a court case on a debt you owe. All those “Beuarocrats” you parade for supporting you, they are not the world. Most of their own people don't even know who the ferk they are and cares even ferkin less. They care what's happening around them, not you and why should they? What made you special?

    Here's what the rest of the world think outside of Argentina. A “Vulture fund” is a charity collecting money for an endangered African Bird!!!!

    “Don´t take the parochial view”

    Yes, methinks you´re right on this advice. But have you ever think on the FINAL RESULT of the INTEGRATION , in time and space, of the myriad “parochial views” that U.S. foreign police blunders have engendererd around the whole world, at least since the end of W.W.II...? In China, Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, Middle East, Irak, Iran, Afghanistan...? Most certainly, it´s not a “parochial” one. Only the totalitarian old Marxist regimes´s brutalities plus their utter ineptitude counter-balanced it.

    Rumour has it, that sooner or later the riches , wealth of minerals possibly oil, and thousands of miles of empty territory in Antarctica may well some up for grabs in the next couple of decades, as the world lumbers closer to exhausting their own minerals and other such items,

    Thus being, out of the worlds powers, Great Britain at this moment is the only nation that has a land based permanently, sited military base, for all 3 services,

    [you work it out ]

    I can name 5 other military powers that do not have these facilities down their,

    And when weak powers are hovered up the heavy mob,
    Will come south, by hook or crook those who have the power will overcome those who do not,

    A contract today, a deal tomorrow may well lead to your future demised country,

    Choose wisely Argentina – China could well be the devil in disguise

    1. disguise
    give (someone or oneself) a different appearance in order to conceal one's identity.
    “he disguised himself
    antonyms: reveal, expose

    1. 1.
    a means of altering one's appearance China to conceal one's identity.
    ”I put on dark glasses as a disguise” to con some one ,
    synonyms: false appearance, camouflage, concealment

    Just saying like….

    It seems the Russians are determined to corner the world market for reactors and even the UK Government have been seduced.

    By what is difficult to determine at this moment but here is a little taster for how quickly things change when the public are looking the other way:

    So I guess the market will be flooded with Chinese foodstuffs Like killer baby food, killer dog and cat food...and then there is the unsanitary conditions they employ in the production of every other food item. Just watch what happens when people start dying. The government will blame the US.

    When I read the comments of “Conqueror”, “Briton” and some other like them. I think of crows, not of vultures, I just wonder why?

    They love to bash anything Argentinean, and they do it with pleasure and free of charge. I wonder why?

    @20 “And China is the Messiah?”

    No, my dear mate. It´s only that, in this case, the United States of America is the Strangler. Because they know, better than any one else, that our indebtedness has been a fraudulent one.

    Ha, ha, ha, and to think at one time I thought you were just a god delusionist, now I realise you are deluded per se.

    Ok we'll pretend it was fraudulent for sake of argument(Argentina took the loans by defrauding the lenders). Give the principle back interest free and call it even........100ish interest. That would be fair.......being fraudulent ....right?
