    Apart from boosting spending for state universities by 500 million pesos, helping Siemens to invest US$5.6 billion and provide us with 10,000 jobs, releasing the dollar clamp, starting the process of paying off our international debts which was a hole dug ever deeper for him by the previous administration's refusal to comply with their contractual obligations, stopping INDEC from lying about how bad we were doing, paying the pensioners, reducing inflation, reducing the number of power cuts, announcing a US$1.4bn investment in Patagonia, allowing Argentine farmers to export an extra 60%, allowing the “Libertad” to sail to foreign ports without fear of being impounded, stopping the sell-off of Argentina to China, directly causing BP to be more interested in investing in Argentina and causing the US Ex-Im bank to start offering financing in Argentina at lower rates what did Macri ever do for us? ;-)

    It takes time to develop trust and actions speak louder and words. I guess it is a sign that they like what Macri is doing as well as what he is saying.

    Of course not.

    He sees Capitalists and business owners harvesting monies that are rightfully belonging to the Populist Evita K, to dole out at her pleasure, in return for compliance and votes.

    He's waiting for his copy of The Daily Worker or some such, to get the latest 'official responses' for denouncing Macri
