I am not defending the IMF, and did not even mention them. I just said it is naive to think China won't have its own conditions too. And regarding the USA, couldn't agree more and like I said any country lending financially to another would want more than just money in return. Although, I don't know what the US has to do with it. No-one is saying Argentina should borrow from the US.Name one 'additional condition' included in the loan agreements then. Their conditions are if the loan is not repaid, not to even receive the loan in the frist place. Defending the IMF while living in Argentina should be illegal, especially as a foreigner.
