    Just weeks before the end of his term, Mauricio Macri resorted to imposing dollar-buying restrictions and other “populist” control mechanisms he had strongly criticized during the previous CFK government.

    These measures, however, come as too little, too late. They could have been implemented as preventive mechanisms early in the process, but now that the horses are out of the barn they will have little effect.
