    “Lagarde will lose her job over this.”

    I doubt this will happen, as the main IMF's goal of supporting president Macri in power until at least the October election has been fulfilled.

    However, the monstrous debt created by Macri and his gang, the unprecedented level of capital flight together with high levels of economic deterioration will likely cause president Macri to lose his job.

    Will be nice to see the anti-corruption white knight face his own corruption charges without the tools of the State to quash them.
