    According to a non-Kirchnerist writer, president Macri's Argentina can be defined with five red numbers:
    First, primary fiscal deficit amounting to 4.3 per cent of the GDP.
    Second, external debt interest deficit amounting to 2.3 per cent of the GDP.
    Third, provincial deficit of 1 per cent of the GDP.

    These four components make up a consolidated deficit of 9.3 per cent of the GDP, representing some $46 billion dollars, which goes further than any deficit registered during Kirchnerist governments.
