Argentina debt: Does IMF offer a path to financial stability?

Argentina reached an initial agreement with the IMF to refinance more than $40bn in debt.

Argentina is Latin America’s third-largest economy, but during the past 70 years, it has endured one financial crisis after another.

One of the main problems is it has borrowed too much money to cover its own public spending. That has included loans from the International Monetary Fund, which most of the time it has not been able to pay back. But again, it is now looking to tango with the IMF to avoid defaulting on its debt.
