    “The bonds will be issued under local legislation, keeping them safe from any possible court action by holdouts or “vulture” funds trying to block their payment.”

    it is a payment - and NML and co. will find a way to disturb it. me too.

    Words of warning. It's an argie bond. Are you owed money? Subscribe to this bond so that you can give the government money and pay yourself back with your own money at the same time. And all under the wonderful argie local legislation. A bond for the truly stupid.

    Can't be a member of the 1st world if you aren't a member of the WTO in good standing and if you don't pay your debts.

    Your trade policies are noncompliant.

    You are still trying to beat your creditors.

    Anybody who buys into these bonds have asked for it.
    In case of another default the bond owners should not be paid later as holdouts.

    Good Lord! Are the Argentinians intent on creating more Vulture Funds when they can't / won't pay back money that they beg, borrow or steal?

    Don't worry, HughJuanCoeurs, anybody who lends Argentina money has asked to be disappointed.

    I am sure of Macri's good intentions, but he will at most last 4 years as the president, 'cause in at most two years 60 percent of the Argentines will blame him for the Kirchner's destruction of the economy, and they will feel that he in 24 months should somehow have corrected all the errors made during the last 70 years. A large majority of the Argentine population has a mental age of about 3 years.
