A newsstand owner counts Argentine pesos in Buenos Aires on January 24, 2014. Argentina on Friday lifted restrictions in place since 2011 that limited the purchase of foreign currency, a day after the peso suffered its worst single-day dive since the 2002 financial crisis. The government has decided "to authorize the purchase of dollars for holding or savings, " said Jorge Capitanich, President Cristina Kirchner's cabinet chief. The restrictions had always been temporary and had served their purpose. TOPSHOTS/AFP PHOTO / LEO LA VALLELEO LA VALLE/AFP/Getty Images
