Alberto Fernandez speaking

Will Argentina’s Fernandez Punt on a Deal With the IMF?

In a vitriolic address to Argentina’s Congress on March 1, President Alberto Fernandez put to rest any illusions that he would be a moderating influence on his vice president and political mentor, former President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. During his speech, the president attacked Cristina Fernandez’s traditional enemies, including the press, the judiciary, and the political opposition. More surprisingly, he also criticized the IMF, despite being in the middle of discussions to renegotiate Argentina’s $44 billion debt.

Argentina: Back to Normal

Mauricio Macri’s failure confirms that there seems to be no politically sustainable way to open up and reform Argentina’s economy. The long-term benefits of liberalizing, improving competitiveness and reducing fiscal spending might be clear in theory, but the immediate social costs of these policies are simply too high for Argentines to bear.

To his credit, [President] Fernandez allowed [Minister of Economy] Guzman to put forward cuts to populist public utility subsidies, streamline the pension system and cool the money presses that feed Argentina’s 40% inflation rate. But [Vice President] Fernandez de Kirchner scotched those market-soothing measures, essentially relegating Fernandez and Guzman as her Men Friday.
No hay que exagerar la importancia del cambio de gobierno en EEUU para las negociaciones de Argentina con el FMI. Nadie en EEUU quiere un default argentino, sobre todo cuando hay preocupación por el nivel de deuda de otros países emergentes, pero el Tesoro no va a presionar al Fondo para que acepte un acuerdo a cualquier precio.
