Article Source

As Bloomberg notes, Argentines pulled about $490 million dollars from personal savings accounts in the final two days of August, when the peso reached a record of 41.6 per U.S. dollar.

This is the biggest drop in 15 months as Argentina’s Reserves have tumbled back to pre-IMF bailout levels…


It is evidently very clear that the collapse of the Argentine peso is making the country’s citizens nervous… and the bank run has begun.
