Negotiators attend the third meeting of the EU-U.K. Joint Committee under the Withdrawal Agreement in Brussels, Belgium, on Sept. 28, 2020, with the EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier (center) dialing in on video.
A Better Climate in Brexit Talks, but Only Modest Progress
The negotiation environment between the European Union and the United Kingdom is improving, with both sides making moves to buy their negotiators more time. But the lack of significant progress on disputes related to fishing rights, as well as London’s future alignment with EU rules on issues such as state aid to companies, means that a no-deal British exit from the single market in January is still possible. In recent days, London and Brussels have exchanged proposals on both issues, but have not reached a deal. There will not be a free trade agreement unless these issues are resolved. EU and U.K. officials have said that the parties are considering moving to the so-called “tunnel phase” of the negotiations, where technical issues are discussed without issuing updates to the media. If confirmed, this would be a strong sign that an agreement is probable.

Peru: Congress Threatens to Impeach President as Political Crisis Erupts
Members of Peru’s Congress submitted a request to begin proceedings to impeach President Martin Vizcarra over his alleged recorded conversation with officials at Peru’s Ministry of Culture, in which they seemingly agree on a cover-up scheme regarding government contracts awarded to a singer for services within the ministry, Reuters reported Sept. 10.

Argentina's Latest Default Doesn't Have to Mean Another Economic Collapse
Argentina's debt restructuring negotiations with creditors appear stuck, but the recent extension of the country's self-imposed deadline for talks with private debt bondholders keeps alive the possibility of reaching some form of a long-term deal. Ultimately, however, debt restructuring will not by itself change the fiscal and monetary policies that initially led to Argentina overborrowing. Whether the country's default again transforms into another full-fledged economic crisis will instead hinge on its government's willingness to reach a compromise with bondholders, as well as produce a credible, long-term economic growth plan that remedies the country's currently untenable levels of public spending.

A Fragmented Parliament Paves the Way for Peru's Anti-Corruption Drive
Peru's parliamentary election is likely to yield a fragmented congress but still open up a path to moving anti-corruption legislation sought by the South American country's president and public opinion. This is likely to promote stability in the near term, but the next government in 2021 after this transitional period could take Peru in a different direction.

The U.K. May Find That Getting to Brexit Was the Easy Part
Plenty of pundits have weighed in on the electoral implications of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's recent landslide victory, but fewer have addressed its strategic implications for the United Kingdom's position in the world. In part, I suspect, this is because there are few obvious analogies for the political crisis Brexit has precipitated, and, without historical comparison cases, forecasting too easily becomes guesswork. There is, though, one suggestive parallel for what Britain is going through. Extrapolating possible futures from an isolated analogy is open to obvious objections; however, it is surely better than working without comparisons of any kind -- and it prompts some sobering thoughts.

Argentina's Economic Sins Come Back to Bite
When he takes office on Dec. 10, Argentina's new president, Alberto Fernandez, will quickly find his hands tied, having raised expectations of simultaneously increasing government spending while lowering inflation. But while those campaign promises may have earned Fernandez the seat, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the many other foreign creditors who keep Argentina's lights on won't tolerate such visions of grandeur. Without a long-term program to solve the country's economic crisis, or the cash to make good on its heaping pile of IOUs, Buenos Aires will likely be forced to once again default on a large part of its debt next year, sending the already impoverished country even deeper into a tailspin.

The Future of Cryptocurrencies
More than 10 years since the first bitcoin transaction in January 2009, and almost two years since a speculative spike pushed the price per bitcoin to almost $20,000, cryptocurrencies are moving beyond cypherpunks and anti-government culture into the world of governments and traditional institutions. The transition is impossible to ignore. While some governments, central banks and financial companies see cryptocurrencies as a threat, others want to harness the advantages they offer. And some governments see cryptocurrencies as a way to save their own struggling economies. To understand whether nonsovereign currencies can serve as a default currency and what threat they pose to governments or how beneficial they might become, it's useful to examine some of the most interesting geopolitical and corporate use cases available.

Why Good Reporting Isn't Dead
Sometimes old journalists like myself feel for the Roman captives who called out to Emperor Claudius, "Ave Imperator, morituri te salutamus -- Hail, Emperor, we who are about to die salute you." Sometimes, though, a great scoop comes along to give our profession a stay of execution. It has just happened in Brazil, where disclosures published by The Intercept Brasil have severely wounded the country's new political establishment. In case you missed it, reporting by Intercept journalists Andrew Fishman, Rafael Moro Martins, Leandro Demori, Glenn Greenwald and Amanda Audi has exposed Brazil's much-vaunted anti-corruption investigation, "Operation Car Wash," to accusations that it was, in large measure, a political tool used to rig last year's presidential elections. For Brazil, it is Watergate times 10. This scoop came courtesy of a whistleblower who has put himself at risk. The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists has documented the murders of 42 Brazilian journalists
