    The IMF itself acknowledges its recipes will take Argentina to a deep recession.

    The current plan to vacuum any cash in circulation is akin to kill the patient to end the illness.

    The unprecedented “zero deficit” measures the IMF imposed on Argentina will be the final blow on an economy already weakened by almost three years of domestic productive sector erosion and capital-flow deregulation that has permitted unprecedented financial speculation profiting on Argentina's high interest rates.

    Oblivious to the growing disaster, president Mauricio Macri keeps repeating hollow phrases at carefully prepared ribbon-cutting ceremonies and insisting his way is “the only way” to go.

    We'll see which way he ends up.
