Can You Save an Economy by Tying It to the Mast of Globalization?

Domingo Cavallo thought he knew the real problem. For too long, Argentina’s governments had changed the rules of the game whenever it suited them. Too much governmental discretion had resulted in a complete loss of confidence in Argentine policy makers.

Italian translation:albero maestro
Explanation:
Il riferimento è a Ulisse, che si fece legare all'albero maestro per non farsi sedurre dal canto delle sirene. In questo caso caso l'albero maestro è la globalizzazione, Ulisse è l'economia (argentina?) e il canto sirene potrebbe essere la monetizzazione del debito (almeno da quello che leggo dal tuo contesto).
