    Does ANYBODY believe inflation is only 27.15?

    No, I didn't think so.

    These days it impossible to trust any figures coming out of Argentina.
    Sad, but true.
    What a waste of such great potential. They could have been the USA of Latin America.

    It will be interesting to see if they really have the U$6.5B they'll need to pay off the coming bond maturation in Oct.

    I don't think they do without taking all the U$ in every bank account in the country.

    Time for a new law in argieland. No politicians allowed to have any money except for the US$50 per person per week for living expenses. All other money to go into an account controlled by Congress. Representing a “windfall” when they leave office. But an excellent point at which to levy maximum taxation. Any other money located anywhere, anytime automatically seized. What a wonderful disincentive for corruption and fraud!
