US dollar approaching the 12 Pesos mark in Argentina

Saturday, January 18th 2014 - 06:39 UTC
Full article 141 comments

The US dollar in Argentina reached a new record on Friday at the end of nerve racking week which saw the greenback in the parallel market climb another 40 cents and close at 11.90 and 11.95 Pesos purchase and sale prices. During the week the US dollar soared 1.15 Pesos, and closed the week with a gap of 75.6% between the official dollar exchange and the 'blue' dollar. Read full article

    TWENTY years ago?! Considering that 20 years ago (let's say 2013 vs 1993), the USD was worth 62 percent more(62% inflation for 20 years), that means the equivalent(of 21.9 billion) today would be 36 Billion dollars. Considering that Argentina's economy was an abysmal failure in the late 80's and early 90's, I'd say that's not a good reference point. So basically, he's saying that currently, the USD holdings are significantly worse (less than 30 vs 36) than 20 years ago, when the economy was in disarray. Um....congratulations??

    A history of the Argentine Peso:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_exchange_rates_of_Argentine_currency

    The last line is probably the most compelling:

    ”The value of one current peso is 10,000,000,000,000 pesos of 1969 (or 1914), and more than 16,700,000,000,000 pesos of 1914 with the U.S. dollar as reference”

    I think one issue we Europeans fail to understand is, that for other societies a currency fluctuation or making money and being rich is not a priority. We might only care about money, but they may not. Perhaps family and enjoying life before one dies takes precedent.

    We would do well to respect other people's values even if they differ from our priorities as EU citizens.

    @4 Oh, I think the different priorities exist in all societies. I don't know anyone in my family and circle of friends who puts 'making money' above the health and welfare of their family and loved ones. BUT, it is difficult to enjoy life when you constantly live in a state of uncertainty. Where insecurity and the safety of your family is a constant worry. Where the thought that you may not be able to afford to feed your family or the possibility the hospitals will not have the medicine to take care of your loved ones is a very real problem.

    We have a saying here 'first world problems' aimed at anyone stressing over something really unimportant in the scheme of things. But the emails I am getting from my friends in Buenos Aires are full of very real concerns about the situations there. Problems I have never had to deal with.

    #4 you imply that because European's and I will include us, American's, have less emphasis on family because we demand our government to manage economic issues, jobs, inflation etc? How can you say another society cares more about family when they care less if they can be self suuficient to support themselves?

    You would be surprised at how many people I know have the same concerns as those in Buenos Aires, in the first world, that are not first world problems, you just have to look closer. If you never had to face them, then count your blessings.

    Perhaps you believe such dilemmas are not a part of our EU landscape because when you return home you focus on your family, which may be well off. That does not extend to all citizens in our EU, or in your region of the EU even.

    Toby, Argentines have no values or morals. They are crooks to the very core of their being
    The only thing that will fix this mess is if the Military takes over again and wipes out all the crooks.

    Everyone has different definitions of morals in a society. For you it is apparently defined through economic management.

    For others it may be defined by how a society reacts, for example a retired police officer when confronted by a texting young couple at a theater, or by how 12 year olds decide to resolve their child disputes at school: with rock/paper/scissors, or with a bullet to the face and neck? Or whether you cover up terrorist attacks against your own citizens, or whether you block public-paid highways for political gain.

    Morals is either relative, or is universal.

    @7 I think you are supporting my point. but don't realise it.

    I absolutely do not agree that Argentineans do not suffer when their economy implodes. If you had ever interviewed people that lived through the last crisis you would not think it was an easy path they skipped through. People suffered.

    And I don't agree that people in developed countries could not survive a financial crisis or difficult circumstances. The world wars? The great depression? People are programmed to survive.

    The mismanagement of the energy sector lies at the root of the government´s economic woes. Importing fuel contributes to the drainage of Central Bank reserves, since fuel has to be paid with actual dollars. This drainage in turn generates uncertainty regarding macroeconomic stability, and fuels speculation regarding a future devaluation, feeding the rise of the black market dollar, currently trading at almost 12 pesos. At the same time, the government allocates public funds to buy fuel and pay for energy subsidies to keep prices low. This accounts for 2.6% of GDP, half of the overall fiscal deficit, as mentioned above. Since Argentina has no access to credit, this deficit is being funded by transfers from the Central Bank to the treasury, which leads to an increase in the money supply and fuels inflation and furthers macroeconomic instability and demand for dollars by the public. Finally, the government has imposed energy rationings on private sector companies, which stalls production in key sectors and harms economic growth and job creation.

    Mercopress: “Meanwhile in neighboring Uruguay where many Argentines prefer to spend their holidays, the US dollar was selling at 12.50 Argentine Pesos”

    No it was not.

    To buy US dollar using Argentine pesos in Uruguay, you first have to convert AR fuffies to UY pesos a 1 AR for 1.30 UY.
    Next you have to pay 21.50 UY for 1 US$

    21.50 / 1.30 = 16.19 = the actual cotización AR$ to US$: not 12.50 but 16.19.

    The smart Argentines do it differently. In foreign countries they offer to pay e.g. supermarket bills using their Argentine credit card and get the price in cash. Thus all six of them get foreign currency at the official Argentine rate + 35%.

    there is a good collateral effect about the dollar price rise and the cepo, because many people is investing their money in construction.
    so now, the cost of construction of the square meter in dollars is significantly lower.
    probably you dont know it because construction business is nonexistent in the islets, but it is the industry that creates more job positions per dollar invested.

    We had quite a few Argentines here over the last week; they left yesterday on the one LAN flight per month that is required to call into Rio Gellegos. All accounts say that most of them were well behaved, nice people including at least one family.

    A couple of them tried to make an exaggerated point of paying for things in Argentine pesos. I'm not sure if they were the same ones who were also seen waving Argentine flags. At least one of the Argentine families that was visiting disowned the ones who were trying to agitate the local community.

    I have never been, nor will I ever go, to Argentina even though I live in Uruguay and could easily make the trip.

    But why would I with all the Argentines now holidaying here? Because you have never been to Punta Del Este you will not know that we are inundated with your compatriots who think nothing of abusing the locals as if they own the place.

    Last week in Canelones MVD I met a great Argentine, who with his liver coloured Labrador has lived in Uruguay for 13 years. As we are both dog lovers we got on like a house on fire and I asked him why he had moved to Uruguay all those years ago. He replied that he was always being robbed by the government and by the thugs and had really had enough. In all the 13 years he has never had a similar problem though he does of course take the necessary security actions that anyone with wealth in a large city takes and having seen the inside of the property he lives in I KNOW he is wealthy.

    I have never been to the surface of the sun either but I realise that it would not be good for my health!

    There are things called books and there is the web where you can find most things out, including photographs of the poor sods in BsAs burning tyres in desperation of being without “luz” for many, many days. So why are you so upset that people of intelligence such as those you have listed do not need to go to Argentina to know the truth and people like ElaineB who HAVE been there and who everybody on the list knows is telling the truth, confirms the truth by witness of her own eyes and the evidence of her Argentine friends?

    And I am forever grateful that I am not an Argentine or have been subjected to the delusional lies portrayed by successive governments of your country via the school teachers.

    Narine

    In your post at 42, you included me on a list if people that you state “ARE NOT ARGENTINE, NEVER LIVED IN ARGENTINA, MUCH LESS RAISED IN ARGENTINA”.

    I am perplexed by this claim. You would have to agree that after being on this site for only 4 days, this is quite a leap of logic.

    I, for one, am Argentine. I was born and raised in a city you may not have heard of called Mendoza. I had an interesting childhood, though my parents decided that the constant fear of crime, rampant poverty and all pervasive corruption by the government meant that I would probably grow up into a adult that spouts La Campora propoganda (they are entrenched in our school system) and trapped in a job that wouldn't enable me toake a decent living when the economy crashed again.

    So we emigrated to Australia. Here I study at university for free, don't worry about crime and am comfortably middle class.

    According to your logic, the opinion of those that were born or raised there have more weight than those that weren't. So with all due respect I tell you that you don't now anything about my home country.

    You sit at home in a comfortable country, you can travel overseas when you want without paying a “special tax”, you have no inflation, you don't live behind barbed wire and your education wasn't disrupted by fanatics that put government propoganda before a proper education.

    You sit there and pontificate like some colonial throwback. We don't need a EUROPEAN such as yourself to tell us what to do or stand up for us. We don't need EUROPEANS such as yourself to sound reasonable or fight our battles. We can do it ourselves. It is the reason we threw out our EUROPEAN colonial masters 200 years ago.

    By all means state your opinion, but enough of the superior EUROPEAN attitude for us poor picked on Argentines.

    We don't need you helping us.

    Those people who copy me...///... you can’t copy me, I am Susana Brown.
    I do live in US. I came here to escape from my town in Patagonia. I grew up there but when was I very just being sexually active girl I was looked after by a Peruvian worker. He used to pick me up on way back from school. I didn’t like him first but then I like to call him papi. When I got pregnated for the first time by him my baby looked like a Peruvian. My parents sent me to USA. Here I have to work real hard turning lots of tricks, lots of man...sometimes 15 a day. But im proud, im gonna get back to Patagonia and buy some land better than the falklands.

    BUT LETS FACE THE FACTS:
    I miss my Peruvian papi, he liked my rossy arse. He used to screw my arse all day
    Bang, bang, bang, pppuuurrrrrrfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff!
    But now my arse get screwed all day by many men and some don’t pay just
    Bang, bang, bang, pppuuurrrrfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff!

    And of course I am obviating for the sake of lenifying my compatriots from further loss of face, the inconsistencies by which certain posters state that

    'So why are you so upset that people of intelligence such as those you have listed do not need to go to Argentina to know the truth''

    and yet before I read

    'I have lived there and travel more extensively there than you have. You live in a very small world and that is reflected in your small-minded opinions.'

    I would proffer that the only conclusion to such inconsistencies in standards, patently manifest to a primary schooler, speak terribly of our education system in the EU/USA, or speak sadly of the mental sanity of the participants.

    My guess is the next Prez will ask the IMF for a bailout and enough to pay this off.

    “You were not raised in Argentina, thus you are disqualified from casting judgment on the society there.”

    Who are you to decide who is allowed to have an opinion?

    I would suggest that those born in Argentina born in Argentina, and especially those who have never left Mendoza, are unqualified/unable to comment objectively on that society, Toby-Nostril.

    88 Paulo “Tantrum” Cedron

    “so, the spaniards don´t speak castellano, according to him, and yet it is the official language of the estado español.”

    Now, don't have a conniption, but... I think what he is saying is, the “Spanish” spoken colloquially in Argentina has evolved along an independent path from its origin in Spain, 200 years ago when “you lot” were revolting.
    Spoken Spanish in Spain too, has evolved/changed.

    Just like the“French Canadians” have a dialect distinct from Parisian French (which the true French say they despise), or the Maritimers of Eastern Canada have a pleasantly quaint spoken form of English with obsolete terms, your “Spanish” is different.

    Its likely that, as close neighbours, your language and use of slang is closer to the Uruguayans, than to people living in Spain.

    I guess you were too thick to figure that out, or too determined to find a way to take offence.

    How many times do I have to tell you I am from the USA. My family has lived here almost 400 yrs. I am as American as I can get.

    Why are you so jealous of the Falklanders? Are you mad they can work and survive, let's say THRIVE better than Rgs on a couple little rocks? There is basically no crime, they can travel just about anywhere they want without a visa, they can afford to travel, they can go to any University in the world, and pay for it with no problem?

    Why so glum chum?

    Paul

    Your own Argentine Catholic Church estimates that 27% of Argentinians live in poverty, and growing.

    That's 11 million people.

    And it is getting worse.

    Do you work for La Campora or the Government?
    ( you can answer to yourself, quietly)

    If so, then you are a leach, truly living off the poor - and working to keep them there.

    Have you no conscience??

    i know very well the situation of the poor here, and i trust in the data provided by the rcc and caritas.
    now, i don't know what has got to do with this conversation.
    about la campora, i am exactly in the other extreme, again, it has nothing to do with this conversation.
    then, the rest of your diatribe is just a fallacy.

    112. You'd probably be surprised to know that there are a lot of Americans that remember Thatcher/Reagan with much fondness.

    When I ask Rgs about the Falklands they have such a different memory than we do. I hear the military was putting out propaganda saying you were winning right up until you surrendered. Then everyone was shocked!
    I think its funny

    I love the Falklands! I was lucky enough to have visited there when I lived in BA. It is a lovely island with wonderful people, its very clean and safe with happy optimistic people.
    One thing foreigners note about Argentina is that the people are sullen, moody and sad looking. Like doom is always around the next corner but I guess it is.
    I took an Rg friend to Chile and he was astounded that people were lined up to pay their taxes! He also commented that the people looked happy. He really liked it a lot.

    I learned enough Spanish in Argentina to talk to my maid, construction workers and waiters in the USA. That's about all I have use for.
    If your 1st language is Spanish you must learn English to survive or at least carry on an intelligent conversation. You'll never get that with Spanish.
    Obviously you learned it for that reason.

    I lived in BA for a couple years then Znorte then finally near Pilar.
    I know BA and Znorte better than you ever could. I went places most Rgs would only dream of going.
    I remember the 1st time I was staying at Llao Llao. It was right after I decided to move to Arg. Some Rgs tried to walk around the resort and some nice security quickly escorted them off property.
    At first I was shocked but after I lived there a couple years I saw it happen a lot in the nice places. The places built mostly for foreigners.

    so, you think that naming a pair of places is enough to trust you have lived here?

    and it is not “znorte”.
    next time learn how to use google maps properly.

    by the way, pilar is also “znorte” (lol), you dumbass.

    @58 How strange that these “3rd class plebs” can point to a GDP (PPP) per capita 3 times that of “argie plebs”. It's not an “islet”. The Falkland Islands consist of 778 islands over an area of 4,700 square miles. Which Islander would want to be “integrated” with 4th and 5th rate losers like brazil or uruguay? Don't you worry, sonny, we realise it's beyond your comprehension. Are they paying you enough for your efforts? Might be worth as much as a whole dollar a week!
    @61 Trouble is, moron, that you reveal yourself so easily. Ever been to the places you slag off? You are identified as a paid employee of the argie foreign ministry spouting the “government” lies, a nationalist argie ex-pat who can't believe current conditions in argieland, a brainwashed robot or a twat.
    @62 I feel, marginally, sorry for you. Is it hard existing without a brain? Licking your arse like any other dog? Drinking out of puddles? Sliding up and down on your floor-mounted dildo? Getting excited about sniffing out a cockroach nest? Yummy. Could you get in touch again when you've spent some time in a nuclear reactor and “think” you might have evolved?
    @66 You mean sussie's a low-end doxy, hooker, prostitute, slag, whore? Do we think she's “full-spectrum”? Pay your dollar and she'll do anything? Think she can do more than 6 at a time? Might be bi- or a trannie?
    @69 Branching out are you, Sussie? Germans like torture. New experiences for you. But 14 at a time may “stretch” you.
    @81 Shove off, gaping holes.
    @88 Here's a “bright” comment. Most of your supposed “compatriots” deny that you're spanish. At what point did you mongrels decide to use Castilian as an “official language”? What was wrong with Basque, Catalan, Galician, Occitan? What was wrong with an Amerindian language?
    @97 Want to try floating their way? I will happily demand that my goverment teaches your “floaters” how to “fly”. With our assistance “floaters” might achieve 500 foot. Want to teach the swan dive?

    119. I know that in your culture you must assume someone lies. There is no reason for me to not tell the truth on here.
    I lived in a gorgeous house near Pilar.
    I could tell you the name of the quinta but that would give you too much info.
    All the places I lived were owned by famous Rgs that could no longer afford to live there.
    They liked getting my U$ tho

    these ignorant isleños are funny.
    they think those islets are important because they have...4000 sq miles?
    lol
    and because they have a pair of barrels of oil in the middle of the sea?

    sadly they will be a burden for the honest british taxpayer for many years more.

    I don;t think so yankee, there are aware that humiliation and defeat is a bad thing. Someone here said that Argentina is like that movie....idiosyncracy where where everything is the opposite.....that explains the pride in defeating on dead, they believe being a deadbeat is honorable. Looks whos laughing now. They desperately need to borrow so they are talking to the Paris Club. It's not long before Paul Singer will be getting a call from them. I would love to see how Nasty “the Bug Eyed” Nestor Kirchner would have handled this.......lol

    Just one of your many identities...

    Do you remember your SUSSIE RANT?

    “Cristina looks like me after a day of work. As a working woman I understand her. I am a strong Argentinean woman and not matter what you say I will be here for 4 more years.
    Those people who copy me...///... you can’t copy me, I am Susana Brown.
    I do live in US. I came here to escape from my town in Patagonia. I grew up there but when was I very just being sexually active girl I was looked after by a Peruvian worker. He used to pick me up on way back from school. I didn’t like him first but then I like to call him papi. When I got pregnated for the first time by him my baby looked like a Peruvian. My parents sent me to USA. Here I have to work real hard turning lots of tricks, lots of man...sometimes 15 a day. But im proud, im gonna get back to Patagonia and buy some land better than the falklands.

    BUT LETS FACE THE FACTS:
    I miss my Peruvian papi, he liked my rossy arse. He used to screw my arse all day
    Bang, bang, bang, pppuuurrrrrrfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff!
    But now my arse get screwed all day by many men and some don’t pay just
    Bang, bang, bang, pppuuurrrrfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff!
