    [$$] Argentina’s ex-president answers bribery allegations

    Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, the former president of Argentina, on Monday sought to paint herself as the victim of a conspiracy in the face of bribery allegations that have unsettled markets and led to comparisons with the corruption inquiry that has shaken Brazil. Ms Fernández de Kirchner called for the case to be abandoned in written testimony on the first day of her trial, and took to Twitter to denounce what she claimed was a conspiracy between Mauricio Macri, her successor, his media allies and Claudio Bonadio, the presiding judge. The former president, who ruled from 2007 to 2015 with a fiery brand of populism, is accused of leading a criminal ring that took bribes, at times through extortion, from construction companies in public works projects.

The peso has weakened 0.5 percent in that span to 27.57 per dollar.

    Thirty Is the Magic Number for Argentina's Macri

    Argentina has a new refrain: 30 — it’s a magic number. Just after President Mauricio Macri completed 30 months in office, inflation looks set to jump to a staggering 30 percent by the end of the year. It’s all an unfortunate confluence for Macri, who swept to office in 2015 vowing to jump-start the economy by enticing foreign investment and slashing inflation.
