Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.
By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and, while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. [...]
Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.
and so the discontent continues for argentinians, how much longer can the average argentine be shafted by their government who treats them like retarded peasants throwing them crumbs every now and then, god help them when irans influence creeps in like a plague.Feb 01st, 2013 - 12:15 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
Precious metals are probably the safest way to duck the currency crisis but their value can ebb and flow depending on economic circumstances too. They are still subject to supply and demand forces.Feb 01st, 2013 - 12:20 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
9. Precious metals are banned from purchase in Argentina. Plus if you can find them illegally there is a HUGE premium due to the very very high import taxes.Feb 01st, 2013 - 12:32 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

I would love to see what they have to say about this.... I would love to see them try and put a positive spin on this.

TTT has probably had to sell his computer to buy food. I understand that La Campora aren't paying nearly as well as they used to...;)
But you are right, the usual trolls will be on here desperately trying to distract the thread or calling the unions traitors.
Like ostriches they bury their heads in the sand and hope all the bad stuff will magically go away.

Industry insiders said horse meat from Holland was likely to have been imported from Argentina or Brazil.
I see Argentina produces a lot of horse meat

The UK has a 2 trillon dollars debt,
riots like the one on 8/2011
royals scandals every 3 months
a british woman sentenced to death in Indonesia for drug charges
a big recession
The brits have to accept the fact that they cannot resolve their own
why to comment on the argentine economy?
