If an agreement isn’t reached next Wednesday, will the country default?
A default isn’t an abstract concept and it’s defined on the contract Argentina signed with its creditors. It means not paying either on the established time or in the 30-day grace period. But that definition has to be combined with what paying means, which is depositing the funds. Argentina paid so it would be technically incorrect to say the country will default on Wednesday.

Furthermore under the Administration’s broad trade data reclassification proposal, white-collar workers at firms that have offshored their production would be counted as manufacturing workers.    at 08:33
