    so when the govt clamps down on Clarin, it's good for diversity.

    extends dollar clamp, good for the economy.

    clamps down on private agencies so they can't release inflation stats, good for games software designers?

    Everyone I spoke with in Argentina is reminded of the inflation every time they shop. Some things are subsidized, which makes some things cheaper than Chile, especially at the gas/petrol station, but it is hurting overall the government's image.

    Yes as an Argentine I am mad and wish Argentina would have more import and export controls and tax this greedy capitalists for price jacking. We all know very well the laws of supply and demand. If things keep going this way we demand CFK expropiates the monopolies Argentina's most basic needs.

    Thats right, take more businesses and they work run as smoothly as YPF. Looks like YPF just plain ran dry.

    Anbar....we see how well Aerolinas is going. And for the Poster business....YPF....now there's a classic example of cfk's operations in action. YPF will run through the bond proceeds that Anses bought in 10 fortnights, then it will most likely close, unless the government will start funding it, but I tink her resources are getting awefully thin, especially when she's running out of U$ dollars.

    Great idea! - coming from your 3 brain cells.

    One of my friends in Argentina suffers from cancer and last time he bought his life-saving medicine he had to try 9 farmacias before he found one that still had some.

    Great idea! - moron.
