    ”(Macri's) decisions have been praised by foreign allies but criticized at home.”
    Says it all of the Argentine president, who has implemented the fastest and mostly injustified indebtedness process in the country's history.

    “the fastest and mostly injustified indebtedness process in the country's history”

    Didn't Macri inherit (from you know who) Argentina in the most indebted state in the country's history?

    So, in Reekieworld, when you borrow money and refuse to pay it back (like CFK did) it doesn't count as debt because you are effectively stealing it.

    Argentina is one of the most protectionist countries in Mercosur...and the French always block the deals from the EU end.

    So I don't think things will be changing any time soon.

    During the Kirchner years 2004 to 2015 the national debt (not including debt by municipalities and provinces) went from about US$178 billion to US$251.5 billion, as of September of 2015. That 2015 debt amount didn't account for the enormous additional liabilities in judgments against the country.
