REUTERS/Marcos Brindicci/File Photo - RC18114DEA20/File Photo BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina’s central bank late on Wednesday announced further currency controls in an effort to tame speculation and stem a spiraling debt crisis in Latin America’s third largest economy. The new measure requires anyone purchasing foreign currency to present a sworn oath promising to wait at least five days before using it to purchase bonds. Under previous regulations, a buyer could use the foreign currency to purchase a bond and then immediately sell it at a more favorable exchange rate, turning a quick profit of 5 to 7 percent, traders said. Argentina’s government authorized currency controls earlier this month, an about-face by President Mauricio Macri, who had previously lifted many protectionist practices of his predecessor, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. The initial restrictions limited the purchase of dollars, and required companies seek permission from the central bank to access the foreign exchange market to purchase foreign currency and make transfers abroad. Macri’s decision to implement the controls came after opposition candidate Alberto Fernandez and Fernandez de Kirchner, who is now his vice presidential candidate, pulled off a stunning upset in the Aug. 11 primary vote. The shock result sent bonds, stocks and the peso currency plummeting on market fears over a potential return to the interventionist policies of Fernandez de Kirchner’s previous government.

Turkey’s Radical Plan: Send a Million Refugees Back to SyriaFor 8 years, Turkey has welcomed millions of Syrian refugees. Now, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reversed course, forcing thousands to leave its major cities and ferrying many of them to Turkey’s border with Syria in white buses and police vans. Wait. What color where the buses?!!!! This is what Trump and his supporters have done to our world. Disgraceful why does the colour of the bus matter? haha
