    If industrial production grows at 8% and inflation is at 25%, does this mean that the man in the street is better off or worse off?

    LOL kind of hard to make up lies and keep up trashing something or someone who doesn't deserve it, #1 you are another of the many british victims of mercopress bias coverage of Argentine issues, unfortunately for most UK and EU there is two worlds the real one in south America and the world made up in the web for british illegal aliens who will eventually come to see things as they are, and for what I heard a while ago Argentina is building homes for the homeless, including legal inmigrants.

    I'm not laughing, though I may be a victim of Mercopress's journalese.
    My question relates to the growth in the economy - Is the 8% after correction for inflation, or does it not take it into account?

    If argentina was growing that fast, then she would be very rich by now, and a most powerfull nation, but we dont belive that trash do we [ I (#
    so if the truth is false, and we in europe all tell lies, then exacly where does argentina stand ,,is she rich or poor, only the master [ [ I (# ]
    can tell us the truth, so over to you, you clever boy .

    Geoff, regarding your question:

    The 8% growth is only considering the official 10% of inflation. I don't know what is the outcome, considering inofficial inflation of 25%.

    what is it with you britts ? you guys always whinge like a bunch of girls every time something positive happens in Argentina? I feel sorry for you guys, thousands of English immigrants have been migrating to Argentina for centuries even before World war 2 , thank god you guys represent the British minority a true embarrassment to your people . You don't see many Argentine's making silly comments over other countries past hardships look at what happened to the U.S there broke and its no laughing matter.
