In this week’s edition of the Buenos Aires Times, we’ll look at the tension in Argentina surrounding the economy. The worst is over for President Mauricio Macri... for now. As a deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) looms, social and political tension is only bound to increase. Few economists believe the deal will come free of significant austerity conditions.
We also learned of the plane crash near Cuba, Havana. We'll fill you in on the details we knew by press time, including information about the two Argentines reportedly aboard.
In other local news, two dozen former Armed Forces officers are facing arrest after a prosecutor called for a Santa Cruz provincial court to take action on accusations the men tortured soldiers and conscripts during the Malvinas/Falklands Islands War.
In international news, Royal Wedding fever has hit the United Kingdom. But things were far from rosy in other parts of the world. Venezuelans are boycotting Sunday's presidential elections, which Nicolás Maduro is sure to win, while talks between North Korea and the United States are looking shaky just a week after they were confirmed.
We close up this week’s edition with four of our famed columnists, Agustino Fontevecchia, James Neilson, Michael Soltys and Robert Cox. Carolina Barros is also back to look at the stagnation in Latin American politics.
All in all, it's another packed edition of the Buenos Aires Times, Argentina's only English-language print publication. Find us, each and every week, inside your copy of the Perfil newspaper this Saturday!
