Argentina blames ?vultures? as it slips into default; limited fallout expected

Argentina slipped into default status last night after failing to reach agreement with a group of unpaid bondholders.

While the news was bad for Argentina and its economy, most analysts expected the global fallout to be limited, in part because Argentina has been locked out of the world?s credit markets since its $100 billion default in 2002. There was little worry about  ?contagion? and no air of  ?crisis? either globally or in Argentina itself, where the story was competing for attention in news outlets with the surprise death of the long-time president of the national soccer association, the AFA, and a video of Orlando Bloom punching Justin Bieber.
