    @1 Stink.

    Welcome to a new world where…

    Countries pay their legitimate debts
    Peoples taxes arent frittered on feckless idle so called poor
    People have to work
    Taxes arent appropriated by bent politicians
    Investigating consels arent suicided by assasins
    The public arent subjected to crazy rantings by a screeching hag.
    The country isnt constantly trying to steal peoples homes and land

    Its a new world Stink, somewhat better than the old one but one the politically blind and workshy will never appreciate.

    Too bad the other countries don't follow Argentina's example. They will continue to
    rip other nations off with interest rate schemes and banking fraud
    continue to fritter money on wars of conquest, bail-outs to the wealthy
    continue to try using slave foreign labor at home and abroad
    taxes appropriated by bent politicians
    investigative councils are shut down before they can start investigating (US subprime and banking, Libor, British Empire crimes, EU corruption, Australian war inquiries)
    the public aren't subjected to crazy rantings by a screeching failed billionaire with fake hair, or two Oxford simpletons who have fallen out of grace with each other
    the countries aren't trying to steal land (Antarctica), or other people's homes (literally)

    It's not a new world for you I guess. Loser the lot of you northerners... As usual: do as we say, not as we do.

    Argentina should not be a member of the G20 since they're ranked now somewhere around the mid 40s of GDP for all countries.

    Plus what else are they going to say? Anything was better than Marxists running the country into the ground.
    There's still time.
    You don't reverse 75 years of a trend in a few months.

    Looks like the above posters are in UK or EU since their posting times are so early so why do they care?

    Nostril, still living in a fantasy? How are things in Canada? In fact, how is MacDonald's in Medoza? Just shut up, you are boring...

    If it were not for Venezuela, Argentina could qualify for “most miserable economy” in South America.

    “.....Venezuela's 159.7 tally for the 2016 misery index done by Bloomberg quadruples the next-worst ranking Argentina....”

    These are the world's most miserable economies:

    But, hey, keep the band playing -- we still have our Fernet.

    What a load of crap,

    these same people stated that if Britain left the unmighty European dreamland the world would suffer catastrophic disaster and collapse, and that would include Argentina

    you cant have it both ways.

    it shows corruption is alive and well.
    or perhaps they meant that Argentina would SAVE the world....ha ha .

    ”the countries aren't trying to steal land (Antarctica), or other people's homes (literally”

    Argentina are trying to steal other people's homes and include Antarctica-even though it is not on their 'continental shelf', in their would be empire (as Argentina seeks to copy the worse excesses of the British Empire that ceased to exist years ago.) Though with Macri, I suspect Argentina's attempt to steal will fade as he decides it is better for Argentina to sort itself out, i.e. the massive resources they have already.

    “Praise for Argentina's economic reforms ”

    - My bank is selling US$ at over 16 pesos/dollar today. Similar rates, all over 16, at other banks here today.

    That's devaluation almost on a daily basis now.

    Central bank reserves depletion so far this year: US$2.18 billion. And then when those CFK “future dollars” come due next month, those payments could very well take out most of the remaining reserves

    But... “ Praise for Argentina's economic reforms ”

    But the whole thing might be moot if Trump runs the table in today’s Super Tuesday primaries.

    Perhaps Trump could replace Cameron,

    just saying like.
