Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

interesting article on the position of the dollar in Argentina society. https://www.aljazeera.com/amp/ajimpact/dollar-sewn-argentina-economy-culture-190912193001142.html what seems to always be missing from those articles is a good excuse for why Argentina does not officially go to dollars. I get t...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Also no reflection on how Argentina might get out of its current problems: neither of the Fernandez' has an economic plan, nor have they proposed a cabinet, one of them is off to Madrid, how nice, and the other is calling Macri a bad hombre. Totally unbelievable :roll: At least Macri had a plan, he'...

Re: Prefabricated Houses

Also thank you to Passport for the list... I'm starting to look at this topic now, for building a cabin out in Curiñanco. We've just started to ask for quotes. Are there any opinions or reports that would help rank these suppliers?

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Even "The Economist" bashes Macri: Argentina’s crisis shows the limits of technocracy As this highlights, the government had too many economic cooks following different recipes. They wanted, variously, to slash inflation, increase economic growth and tighten the budget. Some wanted a weaker peso (f...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Man, Argentinean prices are cheap as heck right now. I was thinking about spending some vacation time there in the next month and prices are way cheaper than in Chile. I guess their exchange rate tanking is good for people earning in dollar, or at least to those who don't live there and who aren't ...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

My bank here is selling Dollars at 57,975 Pesos, apparently the central bank intervened and maybe the initial panic has subsided. I was able to get money out of an ATM (though only one transaction of 4000 pesos, and it was at Fridays's rate) this afternoon. It's a bit worrying though.

Nah, It would be a PR disaster to say that. The modus operandi is to leave a small stream go through to avoid being labeled as xenophobic.
Really? I’d never have guessed :lol:

Thanks for confirming my suspicions.

Re: chile's migration crisis

If Piñera doesn’t want any more Venezuelans he could come right out and say it, this “democratic responsibility visa” crap is chamullo straight out of “El Cuento del Tío”. Most people realise that now, but when you’re 9 months pregnant, desperate to get to somewhere safe where family or friends are ...

Re: Online Service Taxation

Sounds like Chile is planning an equivalent of Argentina's AFIP? That way they get to control everything, and yes, it's a disaster. It's impossible to even write an invoice without passing through AFIP's system. The obvious consequence, apart from tying the country in knots, is to cause an enormous ...
