Argentina bribery

After months of economic panic and political maneuvering, Argentina finally announced it was not going to make a payment due on its debt to the World Bank. (It had defaulted on its private debts last December.) Richard Jahnke's El Sur Web blog has links to stories about this in The Economist and Latin American newspapers. Oddly, the IMF has responded in a conciliatory, low-key way so far. Apparently, there has been a slight economic rebound in Argentina recently, and the government seems to think its bargaining position has improved.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
