    I'll tell you right now that there has not been an increase of the importation of consumer goods. I guess the nationalization of YPF didn't improve national production as much as it was supposed to. The prices at the gas stations reflect this.

    “What is it like living in a parallel universe where NONE of your writings actually are taking placing in this universe?”

    Another own-goal!

    Argentina's economic model was never sustainable over the longer term. Short term temporal boundaries hide the true disaster slowly unravelling.

    Argentina has destroyed its future economic growth.
