    Living here, I'd say no, Argentina is not going to push growth anywhere. Growth is definitely slowed if not stopping all together. Might be so growth at the end of next year if the Govt. stays intact. Wages have risen in 2012 but so has inflation to the same extent. The inflation comes much quicker than wage increases, so I see a problem there.

    Is this committee just a bit more than a bit sh!t? Who the hell is this ECLAC head Alicia Bárcena? and does she know nothing about the impending default of the nation of Argentina??

    If United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) says that Argentia is the economic 'great white hope' of LatAm, then the bar is being set ridiculously low.

    This sort of thing brings the reputation of the United Nations into even further disrepute.

    well, after completely bottoming out, if Argentinia goes from a total GDP of $1.80 to $3.60 then that's 100% growth.

    That's not so bad.

    HAHAHAHAHA. So now the UN or whomever are WRONG.

    You antis are just a free Mushroom trip minus the deleterious effects. The impotence and just sheer despondency when anything comes out that is favorable to Argentina is simply a show to behold.

    @11,12 Talking to yourself under assumed façades is still a sign of insanity. It also shows that you need to validate and support your less developed personality through a sycophantic secondary or parasitic personality that fulfills little more than to support your ego.

    Just saying.

    @8, true. Growth rates are important for investors, but if you want to lift workers up, that's different data.

    Well if Argentina is such a great place to invest, by all means go and do it. I'll bet things don't turn out so great, but I might be wrong; each can decide with their own money.

    The way things are going I don't expect Argentina to last much more than 1 year. Brazil will manage until after the World Cup and Olympics, but then also expect it to crash. The USA has already crashed. Actual GDP growth has been negative since 2004, thus a major depression.
