    Isn't it about US$10 billion now? There goes half the “reserves”. Do hope the holdouts don't accept any “bonds”.

    Never mind about “negotiations”. PAY, PAY,PAY, PAY! Would it make “life” difficult? Nobody said argies were entitled to life. Let them PAY first. Then we might consider whether 2% should be allowed to survive.

    Never mind the US$10 billion, half the assumed reserves.
    The bonds Argentina issued in October bear an interest of 8.9 percent.

    The only sensible path for Argentina has for quite some time been to pay the holdouts and get the problem out of the way, thereby increasing the probability of borrowing on the international financial market and at the same time reducing future interests.

    @2 ' Do hope the holdouts don't accept any “bonds”. '

    Actually that is the likely path and one that is often used when dealing with this country. If Argentina owes you a great deal (and it certainly owes a great deal to a great many) it's unlikely to even dream of coughing up the greenbacks. So they give you some ephemeral paper which of course some future argento government is going to ignore. So yes, you take the paper with that seductively attractive 10 percent or so interest and as soon as the ink is dry you buy some press that says that Argentina has finally turned the page and that the tiger has convincingly changed its stripes and pigs will now fly and you sell immediately every stinking piece of argento paper to the naive and the unsuspecting who don't have the resources to take Argentina to court every week for the next two decades.
