    Good news, the Argentine economy is growing and has grown over the last year.

    However, in a previous thread Reekie stated “If you have been following MP in the last few months, you may have noticed that good news about Argentina is about something that is going to happen--in the future. Never about something that happened or is happening.” The problem for Reekie is that whenever he makes such claims it only takes one news item to blow his claim. This single item of good news destroys Reekie's “Never”. Oh dear. :-)

    The thing about positive predictions for the future is that if you have enough of them, some will come true and they also boost confidence.

    Reekie's outlook on the Argentine economy is like a 'catch 22' situation ......If it's doing well, he'll claim it's only because of something that has nothing to do with Macri's policies....if it's doing badly , it's the proverbial “I told you so”...his opinions are as relevant as a fart in the wind.
