    “Vanoli also challenged critics and urged presidential hopefuls to explain how exactly they would eliminate foreign exchange restrictions. Argentina is holding presidential and congressional elections next October.”

    This baboon is out of ideas and has no clue what he is doing.
    I went to buy coffee beans yesterday (177 pesos for 500 grams, that's up over 100% in 2 years).

    “Russia was also considering a currency swap loan”

    Argentina is paying 7% on the Chinese deal, wonder what this one will be.

    Being “shut out of global credit markets” doesn’t seem to stop Argentina from borrowing money, albeit at a commensurate interest rate.

    The party goes on.

    Even the Chinese are realising they shouldn't be bailing out VENEZUELA and ARGENTINA.

    Maduro got no more than a pat on the head from China at the last meeting.

    Arg. is only getting a Commodities for Cash deal - mortgaging their future potential to earn.

    Given the current oil price/glut, Venezuela has lost its importance to China, as well as many other people.

    Argentina however still has things they want, all commodities though, no manufactured goods/technologies/services.
