Public Debt in Argentina
Argentina - Public DebtRecent polls suggest Alberto Fernández’s Everyone’s Front (Frente de Todos) coalition is the clear favorite to win the 27 October general elections. Although there is considerable uncertainty over the economic program Fernández will implement, it’s highly probable that the new government will shift away from market-friendly policies. Meanwhile, national accounts data showed that the economy rebounded in Q2, growing for the first time in over one year, supported by a surge in exports and a softer contraction in the domestic economy. However, the recovery should prove short-lived. Despite positive figures for external balances in the first two months of Q3 and July’s uptick in activity, August’s financial drama most likely hit the economy hard. On a more positive note, recent data shows that the primary deficit for January-August amounted to 0.2% of GDP, contrasting the 0.9% deficit in the previous year.
