    Somehow the congressional “annualized” index of 61.7% is “coherent” with the Buenos Aires “annualized projection” of 42%.

    @1 You failed to take into account compounding I 'Think'.

    42% or 61%, either figure is really scary. If these figures apply to lifes basics the average person must be really suffering and any savings will be rapidly destroyed.

    I wonder how much a botlle of Single Malt has gone up in the last 12 months?

    40-60% annualised inflation ftw.

    If I had my savings in pesos i'd convert them into US$ ASAP.

    Oh wait, maybe not...

    That is some serious inflation. We should have seen some trending down particularly since the central bank has scooped up so much liquidity. Maybe the problem is bigger than meets the eye.
