    Argentine labor unions and social groups protest austerity measures in Buenos Aires City

    This year Argentina will close with inflation at more than 40%, according to economists' forecasts

    Labor unions and social groups blocked streets in downtown Buenos Aires on Wednesday, with more marches planned over the days ahead over austerity measures proposed by the government and backed by the International Monetary Fund. Protesters are angry about the belt-tightening policies, which are cutting services to low-income Argentines already walloped by inflation of 31 percent and climbing.
