Perhaps someone on the list can answer this for me.  I understand that the
Argentine gov't. in the early 1980s actually assumed the foreign debt of both
multinational and domestic companies.  Were these debts denominated in dollars? 
I also understand that the government paid a subsidy to the firms whose debts
were assumed because the peso was losing value.


Can anyone explain the mechanics of this process?  I don't understand it.
