    Argentina is likely to default barring a last-minute breakthrough in negotiations with hold-outs or a court order. Argentina's grace period to pay bonds restructured after its 2001 default expires July 30th. United States District Judge Thomas Griesa ruled Argentina cannot pay the 92% of restructured bond holders unless Argentina also pays hold-out predatory hedge funds in full.

    "Argentina is hours from default," said Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of the religious financial reform organization, Jubilee USA Network. "At this point, a deal seems unlikely. Argentina may decide that the cost of default is less than the cost of compliance."

    " Les imprudents ! Me laisser tout seul avec moi-même...
    Et ils me défendaient les mauvaises fréquentations...
    Quelle inconséquence ! "
    Voilà donc la vraie réplique
    De Lacenaire, dialoguée par Prévert, du film épique
    " Les enfants du paradis ", à la majestueuse éloquence
    J'avais fait un essai de maspérisation
    Qui n'a soulevé, à priori, aucune objection
    Ce qui sur notre pauvre temps, en dit long
    C'est seulement sur mon blog, que tout est corrigé, de toutes façons
    Jadis, l'on disait maspérisation
    Au lieu du terme de falsification
    Cela venait de l'éditeur trotskiste ( né en 1932 ) François Maspero
    Qui de temps à autre y allait avec les ciseaux
    Pour les érudits, c'était assez rigolo, ce mépris
    Il y avait la " Joie de lire " sa librairie
    Au quartier latin, à Paris, il fallait le dire
    Certains passages de livres, il aurait fallu réécrire
    Et de fait, toujours, des textes sont tronqués
    D'édition en édition, l'erreur est répétée

    Philippines: As President Benigno Simeon Aquino III prepares to deliver his 5th State of the Nation Address (SONA), Akbayan Party-list urged him to "re-energize the campaign for reforms" by carrying out "deeper and broader institutional changes" in his last two years in office.

    HANGING IN THE BALANCE

    "The credibility and momentum of the reform thrust of the Aquino administration hangs in the balance. Partly because the enemies of reform have to some extent succeeded in muddling the narrative of the people's anti-corruption campaign and partly because we are now straining against the boundaries of a reform campaign still constrained by the limits of a traditional political system," Akbayan Rep. Walden Bello said.


    Bello said that the best way to re-energize the campaign for reforms is to pursue strategic changes beyond the expectations provided by the political system.
