    It's very simple, they'll jut stop flying there.
    I think car mfgs will consider moving out of Arg if they can't repatriate their profits this year.
    Just wait for it.

    I could see that happening if things do not improve after the presidential election.

    GM, Ford and Fiat have far too much blood, sweat and tears invested in The Dark Country to throw everything away at this time.

    “Venezuelans by law are banned from talking about the dollar in the illegal market.”

    It will be the “Thought Police” next!

    “Shortages of foreign currency have emptied Venezuelan shops of everything from shaving blades to milk ”

    The 'Populist Economic Miracle' - and now “Argentina is becoming Venezuela” and “Brazil is becoming Argentina”!!

    Something is coming...maybe thought police and they will file the building next to the toilet paper task force. All the MP's resigned.
    It's illegal to talk about the illegal money market in Veneztina? If you recall though, in Germany it is illegal to deny the holocaust happened.

    @ 9 Captain Poppy

    You miss the point.

    Since when have you been a Jew hater?

    I respond to all posters who take the piss out of those Brits and Yanks who are dyslectic, even you; but race haters are in a group of their own.

    It seems, it that WAS a genuine post, that you are losing your integrity.

    Unlike you......I have never used hate in my posts as you do in your profane filled rants and diatribes. I see the hate of many posters that want to “nuke” Argentina and so forth and so on........but that is typical ignorance from a wannabe and never was military geriatric.

    What makes you think I am not jew? or hate jews? Is it your age that confuses you?

    You did post to me that you will never respond to one of my posts ever again. Apparently an over statement made in the heat of the moment of hatred. You should wait a day or two and take a nitro pill before you respond with a hypocritical
