The government staked everything on a deal with the US to launder offshore money to prevent the new currency from running. Castagneto and AFIP are a key part of the deal to bring in undeclared dollars from businessmen abroad.

Massa made a strong political speech against those who speculate on devaluation shocks. He regarded them as “crows” who were looking for a hole in economic policy, but who risked losing value to their companies in such a move.

He said this in front of the main traders who make up the red circle, where, surprisingly, there was no talk of the last two days’ run that caused the blue dollar to rise nearly 20 pesos in two days. 302 to 319 from Monday to Friday.

In the Ministry of Economy he blamed a certain nervousness of businessmen and politicians who have offshore money for the rampage of illegal dollars. They fear that agreements will be signed with the US and AFIP to facilitate the repatriation of these funds and they will be fined for theft.

Meanwhile, Massa is betting on dampening devaluation expectations and attracting dollars to the BCRA with a new version of the soybean dollar.

They also expect the IMF to approve a review of the agreement in the last quarter to receive DEGS before the end of the year and add to the BCRA’s reserve buffer.
