How come she administers so efficiently her wealth and increases her assets more than a 20% in the last year whilst the country she runs is consuming its stocks, depreciating currency, 20% inflation, burning away the reserves of the Central Bank, covered in public debts and a economy with corset attached to it that is under so much strain it seems it will explode in any minute????Nov 21st, 2013 - 12:13 am - Link - Report abuse 0
I would love to say that she is an extremely canny investor with a touch of luck.Nov 21st, 2013 - 12:43 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Unfortunately I believe that US$8 million grossly underestimates her actual wealth.
Funnily enough the Chavez family have been just as lucky in Venezuela even with all their economic problems.

Well.... you write it yourself.....:
20% yearly inflation...
20% yearly increase in her assets...
Just keeping the level of her assets....
I wouldn't call that a good administration....
But I would call hers a good Administration...
Actually 20% plus inflation, no mortal man can keep up with that. Specially if you shift a 6 million US dollar account to Pesos!!!Nov 21st, 2013 - 05:43 am - Link - Report abuse 0
But hey 20% against the 880% plus increase since 2003 is a starter,

I don’t know in which country you are living in but my best advice for you is...
First stop reading Clarinete and La Destrucción and then explore all kind of opportunities that offers Argentina in the industrial sector.
I make for each $1000 invested $2500 250% earnings. How that is possible?
Because of knowledge of course I will not tell you what I’m doing because I don’t want a new competitor ha ha. But in Argentina if you search harder you will find the opportunity to make a lot of money.
Well to be honest I can tell you but you will not be able to do it. But “para que avivar bobos?” © copyright ???
The secret is to find niches and not looking for what everybody else is doing.
If you don’t want to think harder you can invest in mortgages that will give you 36% TNA nothing to be thinking about and it is a secure investment.
Do you want to be more conservative Plazo fijo for $100.000 you will get 20%
Or you can buy US dollars at $12 and then have to sell them at $9 following Clarin Miente BS and La Destrucción advice.
@7 Dany Berger: I'm willing to bet that any amount of money you make, you make dishonestly. There's a subclass of people that make a living taking money from people using all sorts of extortion schemes. People like that are the reason why good lawyers are so important here.Nov 21st, 2013 - 11:19 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Something about you gives me the feeling that you enjoy watching other people's suffering as well.
Also, if a certain publication lies so much, it's not worth mentioning. You just mention reputable sources of information, otherwise you sound like a petty liar trying to discredit someone that is more honest than you.
Cristina declared her assets as $4.8million (Real). That's less than $1million (Real) per year of office!Nov 21st, 2013 - 11:51 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Given her position as Head of State, nobody could be that bad at ripping off the state.
as the shanty towns get bigger , she laughs all the way to the bank...love it :)Nov 21st, 2013 - 12:09 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

20% inflation? Where do you live Think? Certainly not Argentina.Nov 21st, 2013 - 02:30 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
Who cares how much she's got now when it will all be confiscated when she's jailed.
@7 Small point about your wonder earnings. If you invest $1000 and you have $2500 at the end, your earnings are 150%, not 250%. And, as a matter of interest, what about tax? Unless, as Optimus_Princeps suggests, you're as bent as a nine-bob note, you should be paying something like $600 on your $1500 earnings. Down to $900.Nov 21st, 2013 - 04:26 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
@12 The problem is knowing where it all is. There are those stories about bags of cash in bunkers. The hotels she owns that are usually unoccupied. How she and deceased hubby bought public land at knockdown prices. But will she be arrested the moment she is no longer protected by her office? Doubtful isn't it. Which border will she escape across? Uruguay probably. Would argieland even try to get her back? Mind you, if she's stolen money from international loans, couldn't any interested country arrest and prosecute her?

Ok no problem I will take your bet if you are in Argentina.
Here is the condition we both go to a notary (Escribano publico) personally or using a legal representative (apoderado). With $200.000 to make a deposit and we put on a document that if the explanation of my business and if the margins are real and the activity is complete legal I will take back my $200.000 plus yours.
But if I’m a liar and I cannot demonstrate that my activities are legal you take my deposit plus yours back.
Also “The loser” will agree without any reserve to facilitate a picture of him to be used by the other party to make fun over the loser party.
Don’t worry I tell you in advance what I will do with it... I will put a sign saying...
“I’m a fool and very stupid person that have lost $200.000 in a bet”
Then I will ask Mecopress to publish your picture after payment of course by the way with your money so everyone can have a laugh of it.
It is fare. Isn’t it?
Example I invest $1000 and I earn $2500 (250% margin over $1000)
Tax are max 35% corporate tax vat 21% is sum 0 and not included in the 250% margin and IIBB.
The fact that you cannot make money with your cow and milk is not other people fault.
After all, the only thief I can see here is you because you take the milk from the cow and don’t pay to the cow for it.
Can you see?
A Thief always think that everyone is a thief because they think that everybody do what he does.
