Anyone has any statistics handy to refute the following op-ed piece in today's NYT?

"....I was struck by the angry scrawls on American banks in Buenos Aires. A
Citibank branch was defaced by this line written in English (with Spanish
grammar): "Thieves, returns ours dollars!"

and then, his "objectivity" mixed with his view on the above line -"misguided:"

"It seems to me that Citicorp's chairman, Sanford Weill, could pull out a can
of paint and scrawl those words on the Argentine Consulate in New York. Still,
however misguided, that fury needs to be addressed."
