1. We begin with emerging markets where the declines in Argentina’s economic activity have accelerated. The timing of this turn of events is quite unfortunate because the new government has a limited “honeymoon” window to enact the necessary reforms.
On the other hand, Argentina’s trade balance seems to have stabilized – in part as a result of the peso weakness.
