    The “Christmas Basket” is up 50% yoy.

    So I'm thinking this is probably the last year of 2 digit inflation numbers.
    They're pushing pesos into the economy like it doesn't matter

    Recession and high inflation = Depression and a New Currency

    Soon enough it may be found that BCRA is just another name for CFK's gov't
    that would not be good for CFK.
    Bye bye reserves.

    Lagarde is by no means 'clean'. Quote: ”Subsequently in August 2014 the Court of Justice of the Republic (of France) announced that it had formally started a negligence investigation into Lagarde's role in the arbitration of the Tapie case”. What is this woman doing being managing director of the IMF? That 'position' needs to be squeaky clean. Why is the IMF in 'talks' with argieland? At least 75 years of history shows that argieland LIES. What, exactly, is wrong with ejecting argieland from the IMF, and all associated bodies, and telling it that getting back in is dependent upon satisfactory, transparent, honest accounting with unobstructed access to every part of the argie economy by British and American experts? No loans in the meantime. And any instance of obstruction to be punished by a further 5 years exclusion.

    ...but they must stop telling lies. 107th position in the Global Corruption Index (down from 104th position last year) is simply not good enough. And that means that a lot of cheating and lying is going on...

    (UK occupies 14th position in the Index while Chile and Uruguay occupy 21st slot).

    Perhaps this Christine Lagarde would be happy if the French had a base in Argentina,

    if this twat crawls anymore she will be asking for joint argentine citizenship...
