Argentine inflation 25.4% in last twelve months according to private estimates

Argentine opposition lawmakers presented November's inflation rate, or ‘Congressional rate’ based in the analysis of nine private agencies, which showed a 1.81% advance against the previous month, accumulating 25.4% in the last twelve months, “the highest in 18 months”.

The Freedom of Expression committee making the monthly announcement

As every month lawmakers Ricardo Gil Lavedra, Juan Pedro Tunessi, Paula Bertol, Pablo Tonelli, Patricia Bullrich, Eduardo Amadeo and Carlos Brown, members of the Freedom of Expression committee offered a press conference at the Lower House, where they reported the inflation index, an average from private consultants who are exposed to court actions and fines by the Secretary of Domestic Commerce if they make them public.

“This is the highest rate registered in the last eighteen months. The inflation is in the heart of the main issues of the government,” Gil Lavedra stated.

He added that the slowing down of the economy has not been countered by a drop in the inflation rate, ‘rather the contrary’ which means loss of competitiveness, soaring ‘Argentine cost’ and social conflicts such as not elevating the floor for income and other taxes.

Earlier this week opposition lawmakers and organized labour union leader Hugo Moyano called on the government to discuss in Congress modifications to the income tax.

The Argentine government stats office Indec is expected to announce any moment its November inflation index which most probably will be less than half the Congressional index as has happened sustainedly during the whole year.

In the last two years the controversial Indec inflation rate has been below one percent, while the Congressional index has more than doubled and in some months has soared over 2%.

The official inflation and GDP indexes are questioned by the IMF and World Bank and locally unions and courts refer to the so called Congressional index, ignoring Indec.

Of course the deaths of children puts inflation into perspective. It also puts into perspective any other economic or business news story.

It is also irrelevant to this story, and pretty much any other economic or business news story.

Perhaps there are more suitable places for you to pass on your condolences to their families, and perhaps a more appropriate way to do it.

However, as you have chosen this particular story on which to voice your view, perhaps you might share your considered view in the topic of the thread.

Why is this independent view of Argentinas inflation so different from the official figures. Which are correct?

You people are so pathetic... so dumb, so racist, hateful, and an enjoyment to humiliate.

Allow me to use the same logic as Yankeeboy to rationalize the mass shooting at an indian reservation three days and three mass shootings ago:

Many of the people at these reservations don't do anything to provide for themselves. This is particularly true of this Toba reservation. Or is it any coincidence that all “alledged” reports of malnutrition occur within the same reservation in the same area? Why does this not occur in the Huarpe reservations in Mendoza? In the Tehuelche reservations in the south?

The funnies shit of Alexei, SUYJ, and andy is that then they artlessly make the clumsy attempt to state that what happens at this reservation occurs across ALL of Argentina... in other words, we all are all starving with distended stomachs, everywhere, and with flies gathering around our mouths.

Nice to see Argentina burning a hole in your spleens, antis.

Actually Chile is following the example of Belle Epoque Argentina, from the 1870s to 1950, when we traded with the entire world regardless of their tariffs or quotas, had completely open immigration borders, allowed virtually unrestricted capital flows, and the Argentine peso was completely exchangeable at all ports of call in the world.

That served us well then, but it won't serve us well now. If it serves Chile or Peru, fine. If it serves Brazil and Uruguay to sign trade treaties fine. They are they and us are us.

As for Nostradamus, your use of the horrible deaths in America to deflect from the issue at hand here is disgusting and callous. Argentina is having a major economic problem with inflation. I hope to god there is no tragedy in one month's time when the congressmen and women announce the inflation figures for next month.

Argentina is the most virulently anti-diadem nation in the Americas. We fought both the Spanish and English monarchical pretensions in the New World, more than even the USA ever did.

You may find it interesting, but I respect European monarchies in terms of the tradition and historical yoke they provide to their nations. I have nothing against that, over there.

Here, that is anathema to our core being. However, I don't like the presidential system and would reform the government to have a Tricameral Great Assembly of a Congress, Senate, and Parliament.

The Congress would be elected for 2 year terms directly by popular vote.
The Senate would be elected for 5 year terms by proportional appointment of the departeentos or partidos of each province.
The Parliament would be appointed by the Governor of the province for 4 year terms.

Eliminate the presidency and institute coalition ministers. Move the capital to southern La Pampa province, specifically to Lihuel Calel county and build a new capital at the northern shore of the Colorado River. Move the Capital Federal there.

No retard!!

“It should make own employees wages up at least ~ 25 %”

What SHOULD happen is that someone with at the very least, two brain cells to rub together, should get control of the run away inflation.

That way, they can make life more bearable for ordinary Argentinians!! God you have such a short memory. Remember Simon68??? what he said on another post??? about how the cost of living now outstrips his pension??? The ONLY thing keeping him out of the gutter is the fact that his wife is still working.

THAT is the cost of your Queen's economic model, that is the human price. And the story on here about those 16,000 living on the streets.

But you arn't interested in the “Ordinary Argentinian” are you? You feel nothing that your fellow countrymen have fallen on hard time because that mad b*tch has made life easy for a few and impossible for the rest...... Sorry, what was I thinking? I just remembered who I was talking too.......

@ 40 Oh and how INTERESTING that the mass killing in the indian reservation got no coverage in the USA media broadacast internationally, but the mall shooting and this school shooting are getting uninterrupted broadcast on CNN and FOX2. You are thick aren't you? A mass killing in the US being broadcast on American tv channels well whatever next. Give up you arse.

#40 needs to be in the USA to make that statement that it is not covered in the media of the USA and not base it on two networks. It was in the news for a couple of days.......but we digress.
Back to argentina's 25.4% inflation
87 ChrisR (#) Dec 15th, 2012 - 07:58 pm Report abuse
It will be over 30% soon.

“This is the highest rate registered in the last eighteen months. The inflation is in the heart of the main issues of the government,” Gil Lavedra stated.

He added that the slowing down of the economy has not been countered by a drop in the inflation rate, ‘rather the contrary’ which means loss of competitiveness, soaring ‘Argentine cost’ and social conflicts such as not elevating the floor for income and other taxes.”

I have no idea who this guy is but he is the ONLY one who seems to have any idea of WTF is going on and should be made President immediately if AG want to avoid yet another default.

It would only be the cost of a pistol bullet, or maybe 30 to make sure the government get the real message.

It would be interest if inflation were ever correlated with a culture overvaluing itself, 'arrogance' out.of insecurity. Financial and psychological security are related.

Surely, the true figure is 0 % inflation?

In that fluffy fluffy cloudy dreamworld in which CFK and her cronies inhabit as they stash their dosh overseas whilst their citizens struggle.....

Next folks coming up in this latest episode of the Rhea's head stuck in the sand!!
CFK claims she is a qualified lawyer!
CFK claims she will fight to the last drop of her blood for the Malvinas.
CFK claims that the UN Charter doesn't exist.
CFK takes oil companies drilling around the Falklands to court. ........

And then wakes up with a hangover (from pesticide contaminated Argentine wine) to find out all these thoughts were inactable dreams, and that Argentina's inflation is really 25.4 %......................

Slightly off topic but an interesting article in the BA Herald on land tips “which kills people slowly” So much for Argentina accusing Uruguay of polluting the Uruguay river

More international trade disputes running than any other country;
the World's top protectionist country;
regarded as a pariah state by international money lenders;
a govnement agency called INDEC that lies about inflation and growth;
politicians that live in a fantasy World who spread lies about the Falklands.
That'll be Argentina.

@70

From the Guardian 16.12.12

'Argentina faces IMF penalties over failure to meet inflation deadline. Sanctions such as exclusion from G20 could be imposed as country's inflation rate appears at odds with independent assessments.'

and

'Tomorrow we'll find out if Argentina is getting kicked out of the IMF. Tomorrow the IMF will release a report on Argentina's inflation that could truly turn the country into a pariah of the global economic communities.'

Bye, bye Argie-land

So, if you're Argentine and you save up for 5 years (for a round-the-world ticket, a house, whatever), your savings will be worth zero?
