    When offered the job by Repsol, Galuccio asked for US$2m per year and transport for his polo ponies from London to BA. One wonders if he is sufficiently patriotic to ask for less two years later.

    My dear Simon,
    The cost of living is substantially higher 2 years later with no end in sight.
    I would not imagine him taking less, but certainly asking for more.
    Plus, polo is dreadfully expensive now days...

    Hi Chicureo,

    Sorry I passed over this thread without realizing. I imagine the guy will be raking in at least the 2m, but probably has asked for,and got, a small “campito” to put his polo ponies on plus a flat in Puerto Madero, a BMW and all the other extras that go with being a “patriot” Argentine style. Whatever we'll land up paying for it all.
    I'm wondering if we could get Kretina beatified and passed on.

    How could he have been offered the same job in 2009, the role he's doing didn't exist until nationalisation, no?

    Maybe he was told “If your terms aren't too excessive we'll steal the company for you” ?

    Repsol offered him the job of CEO of YPF, the same job Kretina has given him!

    As I am a good swimmer, I quite like polo. I just wonder how they stop the water getting up the horses noses and all that dung must play havoc with the filters!
