A challenging financial week takes off for Argentina's new administration of president Mauricio Macri: on the one hand Argentine farmers have to keep their part of the deal by providing the central bank with 400 million dollars a week, and on the other the long-awaited debt talks are expected to resume in New York next Wednesday with United States hedge funds suing Argentina over defaulted sovereign bonds.

    “Cleary was part of the reason of the failure of the negotiations. We want to solve the issue as soon as possible, there are investors from Europe also waiting for a solution” +++

    US$15 billion. No stays. No bonds. Cash. US$100 bills. argieland is used to this method of moving money. How many attache cases is that? Argieland has US$25.556 billion in “reserves”. Anybody care if argieland's ”reserves are reduced to US$10 billion. For how many years has argieland evaded payment? It deserves to suffer.

    They want relief from the only thing that's making them come to the negotiation table?
    Good luck.
    Why would they ever do that?

    Singer already told them don't waste his time with less than 100% offer.

    It will be interesting to see how the new Argentine president manages this hot potato affair. As an opponent to the previous government, Mauricio Macri had flatly argued that “whatever Griesa says, we've got to do it.”
    His position was in total opposition to Cristina Fernandez's, who did not want to reward the vultures for their greedy, immoral--even if legal--operations against the country.
    In the meantime, it's too bad MPress fails to entertain its readers by following on Team Macri's information management nightmare following the escape of three lifers who walked out of a maximum-security prison and whose capture was announced with great fanfare by the government before actually happening two days later.

    @ 5 Kiki Mashed Potato Head

    The only one handling a 'hot potato' is you: your head for starters has the brain power of a potato.

    Macri inherited the BsAs crime pact from your 'mistress' TMBOA and her drug dealing government appointees namely Bogbrush ‘Anibal the Cannibal’ © ChrisR 2015.

    We had all started to enjoy the lack of your brooding presence on here so piss off.

    I think rottingroadkill has the little matter of repealing a law before they can settle up.


    This is about like Obamy normalizing with Cubar.


    Forgot about the statutory embargo, huh?

    Wow! I did not know that, on top of owning the truth, Chris also owned this forum so much as to tell those he dislikes “piss off.”
    Sorry for intruding into your comfort zone, Chris.
    I think I'll be posting here from time to time to keep some semblance of diversity.
