We, as creditors, have the key interest in seeing the debtor becoming wealthier, and thus more likely to pay back and roll over at lower rates, thus making us rich.
We have no interest in backing failed or failing states, as this is a recipe for ruin, or, at the beat. "russian roulette".
IMVHO.

07-30-21  carib

Savo: my observation is that it does not necessarily matter if someone is elected poor, and leaves poor (like Mujica) or less poor (like Lula).
what matters is if the country they lead becomes wealthier or poorer.

Chavismo took over a wealthy country already in crisis... and turned it into a dump.

I hope Peru does not follow that path.

07-29-21  savo

carib.. some commentator said PC is the first peruvian president arriving poor... i said it doesn´t matter how they arrive but how they leave...gave a few examples... you answered

"Lula too started poor.. but did not make Brasil (and bondholders) poorer."

gdp was not the issue...

I responded ... and you cancel me !

07-29-21  carib

Ps: personally, I "voted" for Serra, not for Lula.
but one must recognize he did a decent job.
PT, on the other hand, was not at all free from corruption.
But corruption is endemic in Brasil politics.

07-29-21  carib

Pill: the problem is there is no vaccine for ignorance and stupidity.

07-29-21  carib

Savo:
1) we are wealthy investors, part of the "very few".
2) Brasil currency and GDP benefitted from Lula's presidency, and interest rates got lower. Poverty was significantly reduced.
3) this is forum for bond investors, and in general for people investing in securities. Political discussions here are meaningful insofar have they have financial consequences for us.

Apple Sells $6.5 Billion of Bonds, Adding Cash for Buybacks

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. tapped the U.S. investment-grade bond market on Thursday with a $6.5 billion sale in four parts as the tech giant increasingly looks to return cash to shareholders.

The longest portion of the offering, a 40-year security, will yield 0.92 percentage points above Treasuries, according to a person familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified as the details are private. Initial price discussions were in the 1.15 percentage points range.

Pilly, when I was a kid had two options for vaccines:

take it the "easy way" or take it the "hard way" :-))

07-29-21  pillz

The pandemic, these professionals say, is entering a dark new phase. Nearly half the nation rejects vaccines, goes maskless and sees virus restrictions as an assault on liberty. As cases rise again, scientists and doctors are grappling with the exasperating realization that the country has the means to tame this virus but large parts of the population reject them.

“How much more energy and effort can the nation exert to save even more lives when Americans, given the options and tools to save themselves, aren’t doing it?” said James Hodge, director of the Center for Public Health Law and Policy at Arizona State University. “That’s a very different pandemic we’re facing.”

CARACAS/OSLO, July 29 (Reuters) - Norway's Equinor (EQNR.OL) and France's TotalEnergies (TTEF.PA) have agreed to sell their stakes in Venezuela's Petrocedeno project to a unit of state oil firm PDVSA, which will become the sole owner, Equinor and Venezuela's government said on Thursday.

pana, the problem i see is who the leader of the oppo is. not her fault, but she's el chino's daughter at the end of the day. no credible oppo, just trying to save their own ass.

i was discussing this with a peruvian a few weeks ago and this guy said that he doubts that k can hold fuerza popular together as a credible united oppo against pc. (too easy to corrupt, to divide, what pinky did in your country with the oppo decades ago)

07-29-21  savo

of course carib... but it was them remarking that Castillo arrives poor...so did Chavez... and Kirchner... and Ollanta... how is that important?

07-29-21  carib

The issue, IMHO, is if the country gets wealthier... or poorer, under a certain government.
A president living like a monk and making his country poorer.. is a very bad solution.

07-29-21  savo

the issue is not how poor they arrive... but how poor they leave... Ollanta arrived very poor too... and then got in bed with Odebrecht... like his predecessor... and his successor ...

"No gobernaré desde la Casa de Pizarro, porque creo que tenemos que romper con los símbolos coloniales. Cederemos este Palacio al nuevo Ministerio de las Culturas para que sea usado como un museo que muestre nuestra historia", dijo.

"Durante la campaña electoral se dijo que vamos a expropiar. Es totalmente falso orden", declaró en otra parte de su mensaje, aunque afirmó que busca un "nuevo pacto con los inversores privados".

Venezuela fue tema recurrente en la campaña del balotaje, pues la candidata Fujimori afirmaba que Castillo pretendía seguir los pasos de Maduro, aunque el ahora presidente negó ser "chavista" o querer copiar el modelo venezolano.

Castillo recibió el lunes una llamada telefónica del jefe de la diplomacia estadounidense, Antony Blinken, quien además de felicitarlo le dijo que Washington espera de él "un rol constructivo" respecto de Venezuela, Cuba y Nicaragua.

Castillo es "el primer presidente pobre del Perú", dijo a la AFP el analista Hugo Otero, destacando que su mayor reto será "no defraudar a la gente que necesita respuestas rápidas" ante la crisis económica y la pandemia.

Castillo debe designar en cualquier momento a su jefe de gabinete y ministros. El nuevo presidente y varios dignatarios viajarán el jueves a la ciudad andina de Ayacucho para una juramentación simbólica en la Pampa de la Quinua, escenario de la batalla de Ayacucho del 9 de diciembre de 1824, que selló la independencia de Perú y toda la América española. Castillo encabezará el viernes una parada militar en Lima.

"La represión a la justa revuelta de Túpac Amaru y Micaela Bastidas terminó de consolidar el régimen racial impuesto por el Virreinato..."

//

El nuevo presidente peruano, Pedro Castillo, no se privó de criticar a Castilla, al colonialismo y a la corona española durante su toma de posesión, sin importarle que entre los jefes de Estado invitados estuviera el rey Felipe VI. Durante su discurso de investidura, pronunciado el miércoles en el Congreso, Castillo culpó al legado colonial de buena parte de los males que hoy padece Perú, incluido el sistema de “castas y diferencias que hasta hoy persisten”.

“Los tres siglos en los que este territorio perteneció a la corona española le permitieron explotar los minerales que sostuvieron el desarrollo de Europa, en gran parte con la mano de obra de los abuelos de muchos de nosotros”, afirmó Castillo, un maestro rural y sindicalista de ultraizquierda de 51 años que en la segunda vuelta electoral del 6 de junio se impuso por poco más de 40.000 votos a la ultraderechista Keiko Fujimori.

"Durante cuatro milenios y medio nuestros antepasados encontraron maneras de resolver los problemas y de convivir en armonía con la rica naturaleza que la providencia los ofrecía. Fue así hasta que llegaron los hombres de Castilla, que con la ayuda de múltiples “felipillos” y aprovechando un momento de caos y desunión lograron conquistar al estado que hasta ese momento dominaba gran parte de los Andes centrales”, agregó Castillo. La referencia a los “felipillos” no podía ser más inoportuna estando presente Felipe VI. Con ese apelativo, el nuevo mandatario hacía referencia a los indígenas que colaboraron con los conquistadores y proviene de Felipillo, nombre con que Francisco Pizarro rebautizó a su intérprete indio.

“La derrota del incanato dio inicio a la era colonial. Fue entonces y con la fundación del Virreinato que se establecieron las castas y diferencias que hasta hoy persisten”, explicó el flamante presidente peruano, que ganó los comicios en gran parte gracias al voto de las empobrecidas y postergadas poblaciones andinas rurales, que se rebelaron contra la élite limeña y urbana.

“La represión a la justa revuelta de Túpac Amaru y Micaela Bastidas terminó de consolidar el régimen racial impuesto por el Virreinato, acabó con las élites andinas y subordinó aún más a la mayoría de los habitantes indígenas en este rico país”, continuó Castillo. “Cuarenta años después, la independencia del Vierreinato del Perú de España en 1821 no trajo consigo una mejora real para la mayoría de los peruanos. Los denominados aborígenes consideraron siendo explotados como ciudadanos de segunda categoría para el erario de la flamante República del Perú”, concluyó el nuevo presidente, en su crítica al colonialismo.

Carib, good point.

07-29-21  carib

There is a "middle group" between the two... such as Brasil.

07-29-21  carib

In a nutshell... "emerging markets".. are great.
"submerging " ones... are not.

All that said.. better not invest our money in such "borderline" countries.
There are plenty alternatives available.

carib, peru, bolivia, guatemala.. peru the most difficult of the 3.

07-29-21  victor

carib, if given the choice most in peru would vote to change the constitution. the revenge of the rural areas against the urban areas.

pc is the first president belonging to "the other peru" in history. the peru that wants revenge and has been marginalized for centuries.

all pc needs to do is bring voting locations closer to people's homes in RURAL areas, and reduce the COSTS of voting for the poorer half in rural areas, and he wins that referendum.

07-29-21  carib

Nothing wrong with a constituent assembly, in my opinion.
Castillo was elected by a small margin as "lesser evil".
He is unlikely to get a majority in a constituent assembly, unless voters are morons.
As far as I know, he has no majority in Parliament either.

07-29-21  victor

pana, this dude isnt wasting any time!
//

Lima, Jul 28 (EFE).- Pedro Castillo took the opportunity Wednesday of his first speech as president of Peru to say that he will ask lawmakers to pass a bill allowing the convening of a constituent assembly to craft a new constitution for the Andean nation.

“We hope it can be approved and ratified in a referendum,” he said before Congress hours after taking the oath of office.
