    So very predictable is Argentina.
    Cant pay , wont pay attitude.
    Crying wolf at every anniversary of their default.
    But as usual some quarters will support their straw clutching.
    Time to man up and honour those debts. Stop wasting money on the propaganda war over the Falkland islands, take care of your impoverished people. Because if you dont make changes to fix these real issues Argentina will eventually fold and become an easy target for the lenders to take them over.
    Argentina must surely realise they cant keep this up for ever.

    “ able to meet this debt, which our government did not contract, but which it is going to try to solve...”
    Really? So when a new Argentine political administration comes into office, all existing Argentine debt is cancelled? ...

    “Default” in Argentina is just another of its 400-some expressions for “theft.”

    What a grubby looking man. Filthy, unkept hair, looks like he slept in his suit, needs a shave and is wearing a child's cord around his wrist. Is this how he fronted up to the US Gov't cap in hand, asking for a favour?

    No respect whatsoever.

    As for the latest Argentine financial debacle, it reminds me of the movie Groundhog Day. The only difference is that Groundhog Day ended well.
