Gerald Baker, Financial Times, on C-SPAN

Main topic: Argentina

Excerpts:

"All countries have to borrow money to run their government."

They borrow from the International Monetary Fund

"It was pouring dollars into a black hole."

and in the black hole IMF
held the notes and accrued interest

All countries have to borrow money to run their governments?
Of course including the USA

Who What Where When How
did it get this way?

All countries?
Truth is where the money went.
Time to cancel debts.

- Thomas Henry, doubting
