4. And in each country, there's entrenched RW media telling people that corporations are "entitled"

and that refusing to pay ISDS kangaroo court rulings is "irresponsible, insolent, and subversive."

In the Argentine case you mentioned above, corporate media added a racial dog whistles to the argument: "the Kirchners refuse to pay (those exemplary, elegant) Europeans because they'd rather use they money for welfare (to benefit dirty indians, many of them immigrants from neighboring countries)."

That's often all you need to do to get middle-class support - even for fraud that directly impacts them.

As for Vivendi, Macri has, as usual, bypassed Congress and the courts to hand them $170 million by decree - which he's deducting from Tucumán Province's federal revenue sharing funds.

His likely commission? 5%, standard - to be deposited in Panama, of course. http://www.democraticunderground.com/110848825
