▶️ El Salvador & Bitcoin Bond: Today, El Salvador is practically shut out of the traditional bond market. The only potential buyers of the new $1B "#Bitcoin bond" are small investors and #crypto enthusiasts. #Retweet 🧵1/4
The new bitcoin bond will have an annual coupon of 6.5% far below the prevailing interest rate on the country’s existing overseas bonds, which have seen yields spiral higher this year as investors baulk at the increasingly unorthodox direction of #Bukele’s economic policy. 2/4
The sell-off in Salvadoran debt continued on Monday, pushing the yield on a bond maturing in 2032 above 13%. The country has 10 international dollar bonds worth $US7.65 billion, roughly 30% of its GDP and about a third of its overall government debt. 3/4

El Salvador neden Bitcoin’i yasal para yapıyor?

Dünyanın en yüksek cinayet oranlarına sahip ülkesi olarak da onedio benzeri içeriklerde karşımıza çıkan ülke, ‘Bitcoin’i yasal para olarak kabul etti’ haberleriyle tekrar karşımıza çıktı. Peki arka planda ne var?
Ülkenin üçte biri yoksulluk sınırının altında. Kişi başına düşen milli gelir ise 4 bin dolardan az durumda. Ülke ekonomisini besleyen en önemli döviz kaynaklardan biri de ABD’de ve diğer ülkelerde yaşayan El Salvadorlular.
Bu kişilerin her yıl ülkelerindeki ailelerine gönderdiği toplam 6 milyar dolar civarında para ekonomiye can gibi geliyor. Çok da değilmiş diyenler için GSYİH 25 milyar dolar vivarında. Yani bu para gelirin %20’sini oluşturuyor.

A lot of things happening in #ElSalvador’s legislative assembly today w/#Bukele’s #NuevasIdeas in complete control.

$1 billion loan approved through Interamerican Development Bank (IDB).

This is major & U.S. government backed. 1/
After slew of privatization in first decades of the post-war period, Salvadorans organized in mass to push back to save healthcare, water, education from pro-corporate restructuring & plunder. US embassy & IDB have always insisted on ignoring the will of the masses on this. 2/
I never get tired of sharing this article as a very clear example of this: nacla.org/news/el-salvad…

This is what ppl like Saca, Bukele, & Biden mean when they talk about “fixing” the country’s water, healthcare, education system. 3/

Sen. Leahy lays out depths of reach of U.S. government’s (& capital it protects) tentacles in #ElSalvador 🐙 with zero self-reflection abt how the economic policies they’ve been able to impose up to this point might play a role in the current state of affairs...
Despite mass organizing & wide disapproval of dollarization, CAFTA & pro-privatization policies (intended to privilege the private sector w/in essential goods & services... bc you know... trickle down blah blah blah)...
Despite the fact that their financing of military & police to protect private property has clearly lead to death & disappearances of land defenders in the region...

Muy lamentable lo ocurrido en #ElSalvador. Recuerdo lo difícil que fue que el Presidente don Napoleón Duarte accediera a firmar el Plan de Paz que propició mi gobierno. Sin embargo lo hizo, convencido de que teníamos que darle una oportunidad al diálogo. Image
Ha pasado mucho tiempo desde entonces y con mucha dificultad #ElSalvador ha venido fortaleciendo sus instituciones democráticas.
La violación del orden constitucional al irrespetarse la separación de poderes que caracteriza a toda democracia es un paso atrás. Image
El presidente #Bukele ha enviado un mensaje sumamente negativo a la comunidad internacional, de la cual depende ese hermano país para alcanzar un desarrollo económico y social más acelerado. El instrumento para dirimir las discrepancias entre poderes sólo puede ser el diálogo. Image
