    Ask Cristina to bank roll the peso, she has plenty tucked away somewhere, how can someone get so rich on the Presidents salary? It beggars belief.

    Why would a country reelect someone that's been accused of so many wrong doings is mind boggling!

    For his first three and a half years in office, president Mauricio Macri blamed the “heavy inheritance” of the CFK government for his inability to steer the Argentine economy in the right direction.

    It now appears that, for the last six months of his term, Macri is going again to blame CFK for the catastrophic crisis that is growing by the day. This time is not because of the “heavy inheritance” but because of what may happen if Cristina returns to government in October.

    Macri's numerous decisions that include dropping export taxes, massive private foreign borrowing and later the decision to ask for an IMF loan are not up for scrutiny, in the president's view.

    In any event, let's be clear on one thing: Argentina's next government, no matter who forms it, will need to restructure the foreign debt because there is no way the country can manage to service its debt in 2020.

    Nobody will be able to say there was no warning: The Voice is diligently telling us in postings below every single MP story about Argentina:

    ”Kentucky Fried Chicken's (KFC) spectre is rising“ while ”Argentina collapses.”

    No doubt, exceptional circumstances require exceptional measures. From now on, I am becoming vegetarian.
