Implement all the economic shocks well within the first six months of his term in office, which began last December, and wait for the economy to pick up and inflation to come down in the second half of 2016.

This leaves Macri trying to stave off efforts by the main opposition Partido Justicialista (PJ, Peronists) to push through the federal congress a bill to prevent public and private sector dismissals, as well as maintaining a wedge between the five main trade unions mooting unification.
