"It's much better to use the reserves than to borrow at interest rates of 15% or 14%, when the reserves are barely earning 0.5% or 1%." Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, President of Argentina.

She is referring to foreign currency reserves at the central bank.

To what extent central banks are or should be autonomous of a government?
