    MP should at least qualify idiocies such as “market-friendly Macri” and “populist Alberto Fernandez.”

    Nothing “market-friendly” in Mauricio Macri, who has succeeded dismantling Argentina's domestic productive sector in less than four years, leading to the closure of over 15,000 small and medium-size businesses.

    The only market-friendly side of Macri is the benefits to friends, family members and associates in sectors such as financial, allowing for speculation with sky-high interest rates, carry trade and capital flight. Macri also benefited and gave long-term contracts to some companies such as toll highway Autopistas del Sol (currently under judicial investigation), and the Macri Group is still attempting to erase a USA $ 81 million debt to the government in concept of royalties for the Correo Argentino concession (also under judicial investigation).

    The courts are going to be very busy with these and other Macri-related cases under investigation as soon as the threatening, tight grip on judges is released.

    Tell us “ oh wise one ” who in Argentina is NOT looking to make money,how did Nestor and Cristina make “ so much money ” surely not on a Presidents salary. Do the Presidents in Argentina have to lodge TAX RETURNS or are they the same as the general public and fail to lodge TAX RETURNS.

    Why, of course everybody wants to make money so that they can live.

    A different thing is when you live to make money.
