"Enor- Seattle Italo injector ally Konami on Saturday firebrand Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner Said said the government would not repay even half a cent of its IMF loan before the country emerges from recession Argentina has already defaulted eight times in its history. Another failure to pay would spell disaster for the country and for the populist Peronist movement that leads it but might also have serious consequences for the IMF which is under fire for it's handling of the bailout. Those looming fears might actually be good news for this week's negotiations as we go uh-huh into these talks today. I think there's a measure of optimism on both sides and I think the fear of failure is a serious factor there David Smith Smith is Argentina correspondent reporting genocide s Argentina faces an economic crisis. Very high inflation. A deep recession rising unemployment and and the prospect of another default would be semi catastrophic for this country at the same time on the other side. I think we can see an institution the I am F- that is facing serious questions both internally and externally on the way that it managed in handled this record loan to `Argentina over the past couple of years so I think you know yes the stakes are high for both but equally the fear of failure is serious and I think that that drives both sides to compromise over the next week or so and what is it about what the IMF has done. That's being called into question. In what way do people think the bailout has been mismanaged. Well a couple of years ago when the last Argentine government motorshow macrey turned to the IMF et made crisis over devaluation of the peso and a lack of confidence is basically the IMF stepped in with a record loan fifty seven billion dollars forty four billion which has now been taken in total and the management into that was showing a degree more flexibility than the IMF has traditionally in the past and the consequences. Were that inflation. flation didn't come down. Unemployment rose a deep recession began and the IMF in Washington. It's clear that there have been serious questions internally eh over the way this was handled them weather. The institution should have stuck to the principal's going in of a sustainable economic plan going forward rather Alva- than showing the kind of flexibility particularly when the peso was devalued and the government of Mauricio Macri was allowed to intervene on the markets to prop it up with IMF money. And what is the Argentine administration aiming for in these talks. The aim of the new government Alberto Fernandez and his vice president. Don't they don't necessarily speak the same voice by the way. Alberto Fernandez is view is that he wants a compromise. He wants a settlement with the IMF based on the idea that the country must grow. I and the country has come out of recession and then in time for probably in two who three years putting back the debt time-line Argentina was due to start repaying next year to the IMF. The government is looking at minimum twenty twenty three twenty ready twenty four before beginning to payback. Should be said that. His Vice President Cristina Fernandez Decatur is suggesting that the IMF should take haircut which is not what the IMF wants to hear not necessarily what the Fernandez government wants to put out there as we go into these negotiations but how would the IMF deal with simply the request for a stay of execution. Do you think oh I think. There's a willingness to listen. I think the key I gather from. IMF sources is that there sustainable plan from the Fernandez government. So you look balancing the budget. which they're hoping to do this year? You look at dealing with some fundamental one-dimensional structural issues for example Dean Dexing. Pensions State Pension Program here from inflation. So in other would you don't give a pensioner if inflation is running more than fifty percent which it is you don't give them fifty percents immediately because that in turn becomes the fuel for inflation this is the symbol of where the IMF wants to go and where the government is showing that. It's willing to listen and in a sense except the there has to be a sustainable gender as well so there are real concrete connections then to the way Argentines lead their lives. What did they make of these negotiations and the current in status quo? Well there's a very deep skepticism about the IMF in this country you only have to go back to the company's collapse in two thousand and one and the default that followed load to know the many Argentines feel that the IMF while a helpful resource on occasions then expects the country to do as it wished. He's the one gentleman in line the other day at a supermarket publicly bemoaning the IMF and that speaks to. I think sixty percent we're told in the polls who've you the IMF negatively but having said all that I think there is a growing recognition on both sides here that they can't go back to the way it was ause and we have to look further. The fact Jason that in the past on occasions Peronist governments in particular have used the threat of default as a negotiating shedding tool. When hearing that this time we're hearing no we want to pay our debts? We need more time. Give us that time so that we can recover. But as you say this kind of standoff golf with creditors has has happened several times before in Argentina. What is it that brings the country into trouble with debts with such regularity for many it would be the nature of parents leadership which after all is dedicated to working class which has always been strong on defending workers rights trade unions and therefore wage rounds tend to be dominated by the trade unions insisting that wages keep in line with inflation inflation to my mind is the biggest single issue and the government clearly understands? They've introduced for example a shopping basket where prices are frozen for basic elements and. They're hoping this time they can bring it down and follow that up. It should be said by saying to the unions but we can't just go on raising wages in line with inflation which in turn then becomes the source of further inflation and further economic crisis. So is that to say that Argentina is on a path to avoid these troubles. Next time around to me. It is striking Jason. I was here in the early. Two thousands when the country collapsed and then defaulted for the eighth time in terms of its sovereign debt. I I think there's a recognition this time around that the consequences of that could be disastrous for many years. We've heard Argentine say well somersaulting Tinos where time to a different. I think this latest crisis is making most wake up to the fact that you can't just do business just the way you've always done it and expect that the world will come in and value out. This government parentis government after all has to think differently this time. David thank you very much for your time. Thank you Jason..

Argentina Steps into the Post-Macri Era

"Want to talk about some big news in South America the change of government in Argentina. which which happened yesterday oversee? How with the right leaning business-friendly Marizzio macrey who basically failed to still the country in the right direction couldn't hold inflation and that seeing a return to the left With Alberto Fernandez. A former cabinet lead in the government of Cristina Fernandez occasion both could Fernandez on related oversee. She is the former president. Now the vice president or is really really on You know how the country's GonNa Change Not just in terms of sort of political orientation orientation. We've seen a shift to the right in Latin America through the likes of both Naro a now. We have the left returning in Argentina but also the sort of difficulty of a country that's really struggled economically for are longtime inflation now over fifty percent Poverty rate forty percent which is shocking for our country that sort of prides itself on having a large middle class. So a lot for this government to try to do to try and Bring inflation under control and really improve the economy so that poverty rate goes down on on things start to look a little rosier a very hard task indeed we still have to hear from the new president of the wars. The exact planning to solve these issues. But what is the feeling if you look at these papers. What is the feeling in Argentina? Do people who believe that for Rhonda's has takes for this job and to face the challenges. Well well I mean there's a big reaction against macrey look When when he came in and a lot of people thought that he would be able to turn the country around? He went to the math and offer historic loan The F. is very unpopular in that country due to the two thousand and one two thousand and two economic crisis and the fact that look he was not able to bring inflation under control. Tro So I think you know. A lot of people who may be voted for macrey. Switch sides They'll be hoping that they will be a change. I mean we're saying that the government is looking to spend more on social programs for example In order to try. And you know help those most needy. And who is on the New Economy Minister Martine Guzman Cushman who was based in New York As a professor at Columbia University doesn't have a political background but obviously given the fact that the economy has struggled so much is will be particularly on his

Looks like a mixture of how shall I put it back to the future and then then some new faces David Smith reports for the economist from Argentina most strikingly the Treasury minister. This is Martin Guzman and and this is very much a new face. A young economist coming home to Argentina from Columbia University in New York and a fellow who clearly believes that Argentina has to grow to return to recovery. I at home before this country can pay. Its its many debts abroad. And so aside from Mr Guzman who who's going to be in the cabinet whose whose noteworthy. Oh I think we have to look at a raft of appointments the clearly. Hi The influence of Christina fantastic. And in this cabinet you can see in major ministries in those posts. We are seeing very much members of live the loyal old God and how centers for her so if a lot of these appointees are. Let's call them old friends. I mean she is still under under indictment right a dvd these appoint appointees will essentially help her with the various legal trouble so I think there's an obvious move on the part of the new government onto and the new president. Alberto Fernandez made it very clear that he believes that Cristina Fernandez has been under political persecution along with others from her former government. Mont and one extremely significant Appointment Jason is that of Attorney General and the new attorney general is one color sunny a very very close aide to former President Cristina Fernandez de Gish Data and a man who only austere was in jail himself because he was under indictment amount for an alleged role in an alleged cover up of a deal that she is president signed with Iran. Back in two thousand thirteen eighteen and Zanini like Cristina Fernandez. They all deny the charges against them. So I think in the the makeup of this new government we have a fairly clear path for the former president and the people around her from that government to feel that they will not be going going to jail. So you say that these these all of these appointments point to a kind of as you say back to the future situation I mean what does that mean. Do you think for the economy. There's this looming. IMF math flown and some threat that it won't be paid for for some time. How do you think this government will deal with the economic mess Argentina? Well I think on the economic front we have to to see that about offend is. The new president is very much going to be taking charge of that one. And that's an important distinction here Jason. Because because clearly around him. He's building a team that is his and not necessarily loyal took Cristina Fernandez and therefore what we're seeing. There is very much the idea that Argentina understands that the new world order is is dramatically different and they have to think differently now. What I'm understanding is is that the new economic team is very much focused on growth at home in order to be able to pay its debts abroad? That's not a new argument. They will be used to that one however I think the the focus is not how we for example default remember this this comes through defaulted in two thousand one and the early period of the Kushner's was very much wedded to the idea of default. No I think this government onto saying that it wants to pay its debts. It wants to return to recovery. Eight is focused on how it can get that job done. The question is how much time will it need. And how long will it be able to keep the domestic crisis as it were in control. One of the arguments I'm hearing from the new economic economic team is the please you have to help us. Because we have to contain this crisis in terms of inflation in terms of rising unemployment in terms of poverty in terms of recession because the alternative potentially is the crisis on the streets. All I think there is a recognition that on the economic crisis. This government apparent is government has to show the world that is thinking anew and thinking differently about how to get out of this but if one of the sort of central features features of the economic plan here is to to get the IMF to ask the IMF to to just sort of cool its heels for two years how do you think the IMF will respond to that. I think the I'm F- is in a tough corner to politically the. IMF come under a barrage of criticism emf permit its allies and friends wins for the way it's handled the Argentina crisis and the way that it was so much more flexible on the loan. So Oh I think in a sense the IMF will surely listen to the new government's plea for time. The question is in my mind to what extent the government uses what we might call mornings. Threats fears to persuade its creditors to give the more time or to what extent it becomes a serious conversation about how best to move forward. Because you know some of Argentina's debt jason is due in January and the the government in a sense Has a clock ticking that it has to confront so what about what what the With the with the people of Argentina make of this transition. Oh I think it's interesting Jason. That in in these final days leading leading up to this handover now. You've seen people on both sides celebrating and remembering a massive demonstration here for the outgoing President Marchisio. macaroni evil in tears. Even though he's government does not exactly been able to achieve what it wanted.

It's never a positive thing to take programs away away from people especially in a country where they're large numbers of poor people but i didn't get enough time for the benefits which would have been the economic growth. His left-wing opponents would say well. That's nonsense sense. This was just neoliberalism as it was never gonna work. <hes> macrey made a point of reversing those kind of populist economic policies says of his predecessor and now seems to be staring at an inevitable defeat in just under eighteen months time which will see the return the person he took over from yeah. That's that's right. I mean the return to capital. Controls is particularly humiliating sign that democracy era seems to be over because one of the first things mockery did when he came came into office was he lifted capital controls this had been a symbol of of his predecessors <hes> the kirchner's who believed in large urge muscular state power <hes> they they looked very unfavourably on trade so they punished argentine exporters by essentially confiscating all all all of their hard currency <hes> putting limits on how much they could export especially beef as a way of keeping prices low for domestic consumers and and mockery came in and signalled you know market forces are really going to prevail here now.

The return of Peronist politics in Argentina

"Argentina's, Cristina Fernandez decay. Now is back at the full populace president left office in two thousand fifteen with the country on the brink of economic collapse. But if posed to be believed she has a good chance of returning to this in October, as vice president alongside her namesake and former chief of staff, Alburto Fernandez Jonathan Wheatley discusses, how history may be repeating itself in Argentina with a correspondent Benedict. Mander. Living with the. Going seattle. Get new put them meet there in, then they're gay three hundred fourteen dollars. We realize as individualize see noise when a p really says dune associated that was Cristina Fernandez decay, Schnur extolling the virtues of collective action. And so there can be no individual triumphs. In a society based on the kind of social contract that she advocates, but her parents policies left the country in dire state. Then it can you give us a picture of the economic situation, when she left office? Yes, when macrey took our. He find an economy with twin deficits, both in the budget and candidates, central Bank reserves running on Mt. And so you basically had a country that was under budgeted balance of payments crisis at the same time you had very high inflation. They no one knows exactly how high is they still publishing reliable statistics. There was no growth speak of high poverty. In the order thirty percents. I mean it was in a bad way, and it's proved very difficult for macrey to correct that situation. I what he's done. I was one of the big things he's done is turns the IMF and Argentina's being the beneficiary of its biggest ever bailout fifty six billion dollar package, but the IMF is still deeply unpopular in Argentina. Was that? Yes, I mean, it's like a comic book villain Argentina. I mean, it's had a very checkered performance in Argentina over the past sixty years. There have been more than twenty programs pretty much all of which have ended badly. Most recently, the two thousand one crisis was probably the west all that ended in the biggest ever sovereign debt default at a time. Anyway, huge devaluation that triggered very high employment. Those sibling arrest people shot on the streets, and so on having was disastrous. So it's understandable that people have bad memories if the funds engagement in the country. I Fono money Taddeo. This realm integral Montreal remove scenario Torello necessarily casino much of Argentine was brought to a standstill last week by general strike in protest over the government. So stereotype measures are we just had one of the organizers, Kellyanne Rupak Anini describing the IMF is being the Bermuda triangle, sucking in salaries work, health and education? So things apparently haven't improved for the poor under the reforms agreed between the current president Mauricio Macri in the IMF. What are people telling you about the hardships? They're facing at the moment. The first thing that people say that they just are able to make it to the end of the bone, and that's those that are employed, right? Because there's a huge amount of releasing Jones, but those that are earning salaries which not keeping up with inflation, finding it very difficult to pay for just the basic items food, prices have been up extremely fast and utilities as well have been rising several times over. So people just. Yeah. The month and that is obviously, causing significant social unrest. And you'd be not speaking to small businesses on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. How are they putting up with things the slums and the working class area's been particularly badly hit where there are lots of factories and workshops which not very competitive and been competing with impulse China. The defended the local markets, a lot of have been closing down. So that's leading to mass unemployment in the poorer areas of the city, which is causing big problems on against those are large part of the electorate, exactly. That's the heartland of Christina Fernandes occasion. And she is likely to do very well in that part of the electric ended makes up about a quarter voted. So it'll make significant difference. Deana. See my settlement brother shit. I mean goon Dino. And. Taylor. That was Christina Fernandez running mate, berto Fernandez. No, relation saying it rally that his coalition would eliminate Argentina's debt without making any Argentine suffer the cost with promises like this, how, as Mr. macrey can fight fightback. Well, it's not easy. The big thing that maybe hadn't his favorite, the beginning was that he was supposedly better, managing the economy, now that is not really proved to be the case or at least not over these four years. A lot of people, and I find themselves in a worse position night and they were four years ago. So he's having to look the other areas to sell himself, so recently, they've been inaugurating public works, major infrastructure projects, roads bridges sewerage signs, rather present, but these things do make a big difference to another people. And that, having that will help and also you have to remember that there are no infrastructure projects under the previous government that they're started. We wouldn't have. Completed. So this is also a reminder of the corruption that supposedly happened under the kitchen as you mentioned corruption that Benedict. What about all the court cases that are going on what bearing will that have on the election? Well, that is the million dollar question Argentines have known to vote into power politicians that have been accused of corruption in the past. So it's not gonna be the Bill and endle-. It will certainly have an impact on the margins. I think that polls show that the NFL this is a supporters. Don't actually believe the corruption charges identing that's going to affect that sector of the vote, but in the middle ground, perhaps it will and the extent to which it does could even decide the election another problem that obviously Argentina faces is that foreign investors very quickly lose trust in the country, and we've seen the huge devaluation of the currency last year again, this year, one of the problems that we often hear about is that Argentines themselves. Don't trust the currency. How do you fix a problem like that? Well, this is one of the great dramas of Argentina, and it's not clear to anybody otherwise. They might have six up more ready. It'll take years, perhaps decades of macroeconomic stability for trust in the currency to return or even appear. So the first thing that needs to do is kill inflation, which has proved incredibly hard on democracy. He thought it was going to be very easy, but it's not higher than it was when he came to power looks like it's beginning to go on a dine with paws, but it's going to take a very long time to get rid together at any then I think we'll people say, they're encouraging Argenta on politics have been compared to a circular firing squad. Is there any sign that, that passing could be halted in that Mr. macrey could engage with more moderate parents elements to win a consensus for his reform programme? Well at the beginning of this government, he did manage to cooperate with the mall, mudder elements apparent ISM and was able to pass some important. Reforms, more recently, the last year or even two that has not been so successful, but doesn't no reason why if he does win he couldn't do that again. But the polarization of Argentine politics is a huge problem. It was something that macrey promised to fix and he hasn't. Debatable as to why. But this is going to be a problem going forward without a diet. And why has Christina finance chosen to run for the vice presidency rather than as president this time? Well, you need to. That I mean it's impossible to get inside the head, but some people suggest that it may be because she thought she couldn't actually win. But then again, it's not clear that the person who is running in place on both the mandates will win either. So it could also be that, perhaps, even if she did win. She thought that she might not be able to govern efficiently at least as she might have liked to how she did in previous governments, which were current terrorized by the FTA amongst others is the populist politics. And as we all know populism doesn't mix very well with all sturdy, and that is the situation that we're in at the moment. So she might have decided to pass the buck. Thank you very much. We will certainly be watching with great interest as we get closer to the election. That was Jonathan.

And it takes on Twitter by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries. I'm Dan guarantee. This is Bloomberg. Matt leeann thanks very much for that. Now US President Donald Trump is ramping up the trade pressure on China. His administration says it will slap a ten percent tariff on about two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese goods next week and more than double the rate in two thousand nineteen that is essentially setting up. What could be a prolonged trade war between the world's two biggest economies. If one wasn't already going on for more. Let's go live to Beijing. Where Bloomberg China. Correspondent Tom MacKenzie is standing by Tom. I guess, you know, the first thing we always look for here is a response a retaliation. What is China going to do in return? Yeah. That's right. Well, we know that Leo who's the vice premier here and is one of the key. If not the economic advisor to president she has been meeting this morning with some of his counterparts to ready a response to coordinate a response to these additional tariffs that Trump is outlined. We also some pretty interesting remarks from the vice chairman of China's securities regulator speaking at the World Economic Forum that's been taking place in the summer version of that saying that these tariffs from Trump administration. What poising the atmosphere for negotiations that China was preparing for the worst? But Beijing has fiscal and monetary policies that are ready to cushion the impact of this trade war continues. Mr. Fong also saying he doesn't think the US economy is necessarily a strong as some think we also have been told or at least a reports out now that Beijing is likely to reject an offer from Washington for talks, given these additional tasks, and they have said previously, the Chinese officials that they are eyeing. Tarazona about sixty billion dollars worth of US goods ranging from everything from Alan g to to American aircraft. So yes, you're right. We're expecting and waiting for. That response is likely to be in lockstep. But we've seen from from the US in terms of the out and the exact details we're still waiting to to get from the Chinese officials here in Beijing. What's the reading of what the fallout will be for the Chinese economy or of these fresh tariffs as oppose that will to certain extent shape? The Chinese response. That's right. And we're getting mixed views from various different economists ranging from zero point five percent to as much as they were point nine percent impact on China's GDP if the full range of so laid out, and and the trigger is pulled in on all five five hundred billion. Also, Trump is threatened China's own vice-chairman again, if the securities regulators said today that he would expect to see a drop of about zero point seven percent of Chinese GDP if indeed that goes ahead. And then of course, that takes us onto likely response from policymakers here there were reports out this morning, potentially. We could see another triple as early as Tober to give the banking sector. Here's something as a reprieve. And of course, we're expecting potentially more targeted measures both at the local government level and central government level to try to dampen some of the impact on China's manufacturing sector and exported particularly in the south of the country. So those kind of responses or something that investors keenly watching for many. Spector ramped up response from policymakers here is there any chance that talks will continue behind the scenes, I guess they they must be there must be some back channel talks. But does this kill any negotiation? Probably doesn't kill negotiation off completely both sides. And we heard that from Kudlow the economic advisor, of course, in Washington saying that he was open to talk. So they were open to talks from the Chinese again today. So those back-channel talks as you talk, Shauna probably gonna continue. But as I mentioned, it seems like according to reports have been getting that the Chinese to reject any of formal talks Washington had had outlined. But of course, China's continuing line on this is such an resolve these issues around the negotiating table, most people now think these are going to be a long drawn out affair because there isn't much. They see that China can offer to assuage, particularly the nationalist security hawks at least in the Trump administration life from the foreign lighthizer who for many now looking to topple the US coming from the Chinese company that is from some watching this Bloomberg's China correspondent, Tom MacKenzie. Thank you very much. Indeed for ringing is those details out of Beijing. Good luck with that decoupling. All right straight. It ahead.

Third, two thousand sixteen few days have passed without yet another previously unconsidered issue making itself obstinately and for Brexit backers, inconveniently apparent among the many, many, many issues not considered by those who insisted that leaving.

So we in visit no change to the way goods come into now from what they did Ruggeri in the European Union.

Once we outside the European, if somebody goes over loses, their Tampa causes an opposite on a visit to the Argentine war cemetery and the falcons Matt is possible. I, if you had somebody the extreme rhetoric of Cristina Fernandez catch me when she was president, it could get very, very nasty. Indeed, anyone pass on that island can speak or conduct external affairs, and that is the governor who's a civil servant appointed by the foreign office. So unless and until the foreign office or HMG Her Majesty's government here decide to look after the church. Truth, then they can't interact with the outside low. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today's show. We'll look at how Brexit will affect Britain's overseas territories and how in a couple of cases that might end up affecting Britain. But first, we head to the Caribbean island of Anguilla Blondeau cloth CB is the chief executive of the west India committee and the government of Angola's Representative to the UK and the EU welcome to the foreign desk. Let's look back first of all to the summer of two thousand sixteen and the Brexit vote. When it became clear, the vote was believe, what was the general response on engla-? I think it was one of surprise. I think that was the case, NIA ks well, but it was all say, one of gosh, had they taken us into consideration in this because we were not given a vote in Anguilla. So following the referendum, how quickly were and grilling and angrily authorities able to get an idea of what the practical implications of Brexit we're going to be within two days. I took it. Allegation comprising the deputy chief minister and a senior minister from the government of Anguilla to Brussels and arrange meetings with the commission so that they could hear firsthand what the EU thought this meant to to us. And what did they tell you what those initial meetings? Again, we found place that was an utter complete shock. They understood. And again, this is something which is not yet fully comprehended in the UK they understood the socio economic relationships between the islands there, and this is something that has gone on for centuries. So it's a cultural thing that we all mixed. We move freely between the islands and we interact according the cultural aspect, which we will come back to do want to talk about one specific, I guess, emblematic practical difficulty. You are now faced with now for the benefit of listeners who are not entirely familiar with the geography of your part of the Caribbean. Could you explain the slightly curious relationship. That on GRA has with its nearest major international airport. Well, I am angrily has has anyone runway, and so we are very dependent upon on the neighboring island of Saint Martin. Saint Martin was split in half in sixteen thirty eight fact and on one half the Dutch side is an international airport, and that is where the majority of our tourist arrive.

I mean, are they, you know the the kind of people who voted for him in two thousand sixteen or is this some kind of cultish thing that follows him? And he can always turn out eight or ten thousand people in West Virginia or in Tennessee, but they don't really represent what's happening out there in the middle of America. Any more. I don't know. That's a great question. Yeah, the West Virginia place was packed. It was over ten thousand people. I spent some time in rural Maine, you know an and that state went for Hillary but barely in. And when I was there before the election, there were plenty of Trump signs up and going back there. Now I did. I saw one Trump sign. I didn't see a single person with a mega head-on. I so one front bumper sticker, and then I looked closer and it had been sort of scribbled over and it said, make American grapes again, you know. So I mean, it just it doesn't. I don't get the sense and the people that I know that voted for Trump. I grew up in a small town and upstate New York. They are suddenly not defending him publicly anymore. You know, a lot of people have just taken a bunch of steps back are preferring to talk about other things. Thanks for very much for the have. Just one final, very quick question to you. Michael, a speculative one to conclude the wig who d- reckons the next shoe to drop. Will you know who who was Michael Cohen. With in in all of these conversations, it was the Trump sons, and I have no doubt that the next step up the ladder will be into the Trump family that self. And that's when it's going to be much more like Gambino time because it is a it is a family business. It is for the family, and I do think that Trump son's really need to not be hiring Rudy Giuliani to be their lawyer, Michael Goldfarb and have Timmons. Thanks both very much for joining us.

We are not certain, but we some weeks ago, some books appeared from her show fair, apparently keeping a tab, but every single delivery of money. And this. Has been what has sparked the investigation to go as deep as it is going. Now they're looking for possible information on money that was transported in bags or sacks. That's never a good sign right there. Money being transported in bags or sacks, especially when high profile politicians are involved. Do we know though if this is an investigation focused specifically on her, or is this the beginnings of a wider Brazil style scandal involving practically everybody? Well, the Brazil steles scandal is looming. I mean, it's so touched the whole region and Cristina Fernandez. Accuser has already been involved in situations that had to do with suitcases filled with money, arriving from Venezuela, one of her campaign. So this is not entirely new. Don't really know how far reaching it is. We also don't know if it's part of a political vendetta or if it's also a distraction move from the current government. She has used in her defense, the phrase, witch hunt a retort, which I suspect has become somewhat devalued by recent events. Further north of where she is, is that defense proving a a useful one to her? Are people buying it..

Consumed swathes of the northern hemisphere on August the fourth doctor Bjorn Lomborg author, of the book skeptical environmentalist which sets him up as perhaps the world's best known critic of the dominant scientific view. Of global warming tweeted a picture of the economists from page. And drew attention, to the situation in the United States please stop the. Misleading fire stories the? US is smoldering less? Not more 2018 will likely see? Burnt area one sixth? Of, the US record Dr Lomborg attached to chop produced by the National Interagency Fire center in. The United States Which showed the annual number of acres burned by wildfires in the US for nine hundred, twenty six to twenty thousand eighteen the chart showed that. Between the nineteen, fifties and present day there were very, few years that wildfires had exceeded more than ten million acres. Per year of damage but before the nineteen, fifties it was not unusual to see annual numbers over thirty million on. A couple of the Cajun's as high as fifty million but a Twitter follower commenting on Dr Lomborg tweet posted the following in response you forgot something important did you not if you read in the very top the data from before. Nine thousand nine hundred eighty three is inaccurate what this tweet was referring to was the fact that. The national intelligence he fire centers. Data on its website does come with an explicit warning prior to nineteen Eighty-three, sources of these figures are not known or cannot be confirmed and we're not derived from the current situation reporting process As a result the figures prior to nineteen Eighty-three should not be, compared to later data this doesn't mean the data before nine thousand nine hundred three is definitely inaccurate the tweets are described. It but it does mean that numbers before nine thousand nine, hundred three shouldn't be compared with the ones after for the reasons given Dr Lomborg argued on Twitter. That the National Interagency Fire, center was wrong to claim that they didn't know whether figures products in one thousand nine hundred three came from and cited. In one thousand nine hundred seventy five. Document published by the US census bureau, which contains numbers for. The years nineteen twenty six to nineteen sixty seven which, would provided by the US forest service I asked the National Interagency. Fire center why they had claimed that the sources of the biggest prior, to nineteen Eighty-three were not known spokesperson told me yes the forest service provided those numbers but the raw data I've seen came from multiple sources and we, don't know if some acres were double or triple counting Further it's only been in. More recent times that mapping, accuracy has improved by leaps and bounds with advent of GPS tens of millions of acres is a massive amount of land and up through the middle of the last century the tools manpower and time it would take to actually map those fires were not available when I told Dr Lomborg this he maintained that the early numbers were accurate citing a peer reviewed article on biopsies in, the early data which did not support claims of double-counting instead he says, it shows that early reporting covered less than. Thirty percent of present day area so, early fire data is likely to be severely underestimated the science reporter Maggie Baker who regularly writes on natural disasters, says, she's been surprised how hard it's, been to get accurate data prior to the nine thousand nine hundred eighty s I am constantly amazed at the way that Our record keeping in a really meticulous accurate way doesn't go back very far I. Did a story a couple of years ago about tornadoes in the US and over and. Over basically I was told that I shouldn't trust the numbers before the nineteen eighty s that is something.
