Argentina's "Far-Right" (Libertarian) Javier Milei wins Primary.

This guy is great, he's like a combo of Ron Paul but with Trump's fiestyness. And he's got Austin Powers Mod haircut.

I’m not sure what to make of this story. Barron’s covered it in an article yesterday headlined, “IMF Authorizes $4.7 Billion For Argentina After Milei's 'Bold' Reforms.”

In a statement, the International Monetary Fund’s chief Kristalina Georgieva, if that’s her real name, praised Javier Milei's "bold actions to restore macroeconomic stability and... address long-standing impediments to growth." Accordingly, the IMF approved a $4.7 billion “aid program,” which is probably an onerous loan with tons of strings attached, but it signals official approval of Milei’s anti-socialist reforms. ...

I was surprised at the news of the IMF loan, since I expected global organizations like the IMF would oppose Milei’s anarcho-capitalist reforms. But something in the zeitgeist seems to have changed. Maybe, revealed by the harsh light of potential post-pandemic financial collapse, socialism is finally looking unaffordable.


I'm suspicious of anyone the IMF supports. This is not a good look for Milei.

Who knew not giving people handouts is good for the economy? Well, if you read Ben Franklin, or use common sense, everyone...

And just after he met the tiny hats, too. Oh no, that's not a connection puzzle trimmers want to be made.

Huh?

Yeah, Milei met with the tiny hats and the Fuentes/Dawson crew was all opining that he got his marching orders from the Khazarim Kabal.

So Milei went and slashed the shit out of the government and cut spending.

But they won't make a connection between meeting with tiny hats and doing a good thing, because it counters their Narrative.

Slashing government spending curtails government power. You don't associate with foreign entities, or carry out their orders to reduce your influence. Logic is necessary, otherwise it's just a theory, NOT a conspiracy.

All the US government has to do to balance the budget is to have a freeze on spending increases for about 4 years. With inflation fuelled income tax receipts, the budget will balance at that time.

Better: cut 10% off the top as well.

Of course, DC area would have a few hundred heart attacks.

Why would a central government that prints money out of thin air give a rats ass about a balanced budget?

Worse though, this is the classic mis-understanding of inflation. As the value of the worthless paper gets closer to reality($0), the price of everything goes up. You can freeze hell, you won't stop that price increase until real money is allowed back into the economy.

Argentines witnessed something amazing last week: the government’s first budget surplus in nearly a dozen years.

The Economy Ministry announced the figures Friday, and the government was $589 million in the black.

Argentina’s surplus comes on the heels of ambitious cuts in federal spending pushed by newly-elected President Javier Milei that included slashing bureaucracy, eliminating government publicity campaigns, reducing transportation subsidies, pausing all monetary transfers to local governments, and devaluing the peso.

We could do it too. The ballooning interest expenses on the existing national debt will still be a problem that will require creative refinancing.

We are going to do it. The national debt goes up by about a trillion dollars every 4 months.

People who have been saying for 20 fucking years it doesn't matter what the debt is, are about to find out quite soon, they were wrong about that.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Argentina formally requested on Thursday to join NATO as a global partner, a status that would clear the way for greater political and security cooperation at a time when the right-wing government of President Javier Milei aims to boost ties with Western powers and attract investment.

The request came as NATO’s Deputy General Secretary Mircea Geoana held talks in Brussels on regional security challenges with visiting Argentine Defense Minister Luis Petri.

Can we have some obligatory "Reeeeeee!" now?

Upon taking office, Milei’s plan was to devalue the Peso by 50% setting it closer to the U.S. currency’s value on the parallel retail market. It’s how the Austrian School quells triple digit inflation.

He told everyone this would happen but Tits McGee here doesn’t understand economics.

UK? Super Etendard - "Standard/Banner" - is a French jet.

EDIT: Apparently the parts are UK sourced.

Smart move by Milei, though! Those things are way out of date anyway.
