Argentines shrug off risk of default

In this Friday, July 25, 2014 photo, pedestrians walk past a branch of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, a target for anti-capitalist agitation ever since a 1927 anarchist bombing of what was then a Bank of Boston, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2001, this neo-colonial bank building from Argentina's golden age was ground zero for the country's financial earthquake. Mobs of protesters stared down riot police to demand the return of their savings confiscated by the government in a last-ditch, and ultimately failed, attempt to stay current on its debt. Thirteen years later, a July 30th midnight deadline approaches to avert another default. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko)
