    Another sum that will never be paid back. Most of which will be siphoned off to fill the fat cats pockets.

    Yes if this is used as sugested for those in desperate need it will certainly help some of the population worst hit. But we know only to well Argentine rulers are a lot to be desired and will likely mismanage this new loan as they have all the others then cry wolf they cant afford to pay it back. Sound familiar.
