Take physic, pomp

Kirchner fallout

Highly recommended is Joshua Frens-String’s roundup of reactions to the death of Nestor Kirchner yesterday, found on this link. JFS has done a good job of digesting news and opinion on the event from all sides of the political and economic spectrum (and includes the transcript of the famed Kirchner/Krugman debate back in 2004, which is to be especially applauded).
Click here for the JFS note. A whole world of reaction in just a few lines.
To add my own little dos centavitos, right now I’d make Cristina a red hot favourite for re-election next year, assuming she wants the job (I respectfully suggest that she is allowed to mourn first, as even politicos are human beings). Reason? Nobody does death like the Argentines.
