    PayPal's really handy. I imagine you can use it in the Falkland Islands, and everywhere else in the civilised world.

    All, reamber though that although you can use Paypal for foreign transactions as they are foreign using your Argentine registered card will mean an advance income tax of 15% will be applied.

    Do you know what this mean for the 100 oo0's of expats in Argentina who want to buy stuff thru Paypal linked to a NON Argentine account?

    I guess they-ll still get stung at customs when they have to declare the value of the imported item and prove how they paid for it.

    A gold currency will put an end to all the BS. We have lots of gold in San Juan Argentina and I am sure we can turn the gold into a Argentine currency anything short of a good. Currency is just another way for banks to theft Argentina's resources. I doubt anyone in the world will refuse payments in gold.

    If you are so sensitive to investing in YPF don't do so. Mr Galuccio has many friends in anLondon d he would like to give them a break at the immense fortunes to be made. Mr. Galuccio is only stopping by for a few hours though, so if you're interested, don't miss the boat. Too good to pass up. Else, there are takers in other places.

    I think anyone who waste Argentina's wealth in another country should pay 50% taxes. As we pay in Canada when we import. The truth is simple there are taxes we must pay anywhere we go why do the english make such a big problem in Argentina??? Because we let them that simple, because they are killing muslim women and children all the time all over the planet and yet we read this garbage about Argentina,you can all see the lack of values and consistency in their reporting, I like the fee is long over due. People here need to travel more and leave politics to real politicians, if you import anything into Argentina I demand you be treated as I am treated outside Argentina, pay taxes damn you all, I pay them.

    Seems the BCRA reserves are a lot less then lead to believe. There was a total of just 500 billion in reserves (pesos) of which 16% was foreign funds......roughly 80 billion pesos or 17.4 billion DOLLARS. unfortunately 14%, 70 billion pesos...15.2 billion dollars were pegged as credit deposits.....not their money. Reality is that they only had 2.2 billion in December 2011. while they made some money in surplus, they also paid those bonds. They really have no international funds in reserves.
    WTF does killing muslims have to do with this. Besides.....they wanted to fight the western world........the western world decided to bring it back to them. The politicians should unleash the full force of the military and make that sand bowl....a glass bowl.

    “the western world decided to bring it back to them. The politicians should unleash the full force of the military and make that sand bowl....a glass bowl.”

    And then you wonder why the “non-western” world is mass-weaponizing and fast.

    I'd say Iran get nukes, and Israel make public that they do. Then everyone else get nukes.

    The world is most peaceful it's been proven when all sides can annihilate the other. Which is why since the fall of the Soviets the world has been much more unstable and violent.

    Argentina should build their own nukes to protect the main land from British occupation, as we have Malvinas Argentina under illegal occupation already, we need to use the excuse to arm ourselves in South America.

    #33 lol I didn't say Argentina will be asking USA or Brazil to have nukes I said, Iran and Argentine should build their own nuclear defence program, USA couldn't even stop north Korea from building their own nuclear defence program, besides self determination in Argentina dictates that no country can have a say in Argentina but Argentine themselves. Unless international laws are made only for white people, racist bastards have no say in it, do us a favor and lead by example not by lies and bias attitudes. We can make up our own mind in Argentina, thanks but no thanks. I pay taxes in Canada and I am Argentine I expect every Argentine to pay as well. There is no way around it, I wish Barrick gold payed 25% for mining rights as theyndo in Canada, maybe you will like to comment on that.

    Why do you live in Canada if argentina is so grand? Nuclear defense is a dream for you, not argentina, they signed a no prolif treaty. RG expects people to eat well for 6 pesos a day, they can't develop and army let alone a nuclear defense. And if they did, they sorrow they would inflect on their people would be unimaginable.

    nah it would not work,
    CFK would be much better served if she exbanded her dream empire over the spannish,
    and get an argentine foot hold in Europe,
    now that will make her indocronought happy,

    ABsolute tripe!!

    “ the english make such a big problem in Argentina??? Because we let them that simple, because they are killing muslim women and children all the time all over the planet and yet we read this garbage about Argentina,”

    You are RANTING absolute nonsense that has NOTHING TO DO WITH ARGENTINA

    “ if you import anything into Argentina I demand you be treated as I am treated outside Argentina, pay taxes damn you all, I pay them!”

    LOL, you ARE an angry little kid aren't you.

    Meanwhile, we laugh at you.

    'Poor little me' , you cry.
    While you live in the comfort of Mummy and Daddy's home in Canada, then you wish hardship on your “fellow” Argentinians, by their own corrupt government.

    You reference everything to Canada, I'm sure you know nothing else.

    You CANNOT travel to Argentina - you have already stated that, previously.

    You obviously do not have a passport to travel, or you cannot get back into Canada if you leave.
    Perhaps you have a criminal record??

    I can tell the other users reading these posts that you make up taxation stats only to suit yourself.

    I can tell them too, that your information posted about Canada is usually incomplete and misleading, if not completely wrong or irrelevant.

    In fact - YOU are irrelevant.

    Even “pgerman”, the Malvinista in Vancouver, calls you an ignorant kid and “intellectually dishonest”.

    That's being kind.

    Now, go complain elsewhere.

    The invitation plays to her vanity, but even though she is sorely tempted, she will not appear.

    CFK would be wise to be afraid of historians, lawyers, academics, scholars, and other genuine debaters...

    She can't risk that.

    However, one hopes that while she is shopping in NYC, the Argentinian people will organise a coup, and Tango Farce One will leave the US without her.

    C'mon Argues, this is your chance!
