well there is a lot more to

well there is a lot more to this case

- Argentinia is mostly in financial distress because of their own government's cronyism and absurd politics and a failed economic strategy (peronism)

- The whole point why an american court can decide about argentinian debt is because the argentinian government SOLD BONDS WHICH PROMISED EXACTLY THAT!

- Of course argentina could just have sold bonds in pesos, or in dollar but under its own legal system - but in that case they would have had to pay much larger interest.

So if there is anything to learn it could be
- Don't sell bonds in a foreign currency
- Don't sell bonds while submissing to an foreign legal system
- Best include a Collective Action Clause
- If the interest is getting to high, start getting your economy in order, implement some reforms and get the economy growing (ask the OECD or IWF on the details).
