    It seems like most of the world is running to help and invest in Argentina.

    perhaps they know something the ordinary argies don't ,

    or they have more money than sense.

    @1 “It seems like most of the world is running to help and invest in Argentina.”

    It doesn't seem that way here. Only empty promises. Can you blame serious investors from staying away in droves?

    Perhaps it seems that the IMF is willing to deal with a lower level of outright lying from Argentina in its economic stats.

    Article: “Foreign investors still cautious”

    ... which was mostly based on this article at Reuters:

    “.....investors, remembering Argentina's long history of instability, are waiting for signs that Macri's policies are here to stay.”

    Remember that the stink of fratricidal peronismo here is never far away.

    what the people should be benefitting by.

    The IMF has been bad news for Argentina--every single time.
    Nestor Kirchner's payoff and goodbye to the infamous organization put him in history as an example of a country relying on its own forces first.
    The renewed IMF-Argentina relationship only deepens a looming sense of deja vu catastrophe

    @5 Entirely IMF's fault -- Argentina blameless. IMF invaded Argentina, forced it at gunpoint to receive loans.
