Wonder if Bergara understands that a launching pad is something you leave behind? A slight drawback is that the economy of urineguay is pegged to that of argieland. It will fail shortly, when urineguay becomes known as steviemania. Similar to Germania, since neither exist nor could they!May 14th, 2014 - 11:58 am - Link - Report abuse 0
The first reason to invest there is that it is not Argentina.May 14th, 2014 - 12:26 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
The first reason not to invest there is the Uruguayan government.
The second reason not to invest there is the uncertainty created by the British military threat to Uruguay, or rather that the scoundrels in power could bring themselves to say such a thing. If they can say stuff like that, they are clearly demented and cannot be trusted.

Buggeritupa didn’t go on to say why it is a good launching pad to develop the region, why would he mention as soon as your company get’s here you will be inundated with “licence fees”, “inpections “of the premises every six months and be saddled with draconian union inspired laws that automatically come down on the side of the “poor itty bitty liddel employees”! Oh yes, I have met a few of them: snake oil sellers, all of them.
You will soon be launching yourself out of the country to save yourself going bankrupt.
“However the minister did admit Uruguay had with inflation “a serious challenge” in the “short and mid terms”, but nevertheless the average consumer and industrial prices indexes have fallen dramatically in the last decade compared to previous periods”
Well of course they have with the inflation helping them! Buggeritupa must think he is so clever, but the hard-headed Yanks will see him for what he is; an over promoted bean counter from the Central Bank of which he was “Chairman / President / chief lackey to the now resigned FM.
The final insult to Uruguay:
“Uruguay however honored its sovereign debt and with financial help from the Bush administration, managed to rapidly overcome the situation. The bridge loan was returned to the US in three months and by 2003 the Uruguayan economy was again growing strongly, never having ceased to pay interest or capital.”
ALL TRUE, but hese stupid illiterate and innumerate cunts weren’t in that government, were they.
BTW the default was US$ 2.4 Billion then and “No Money Pepe” is presently looking at in excess of US$ 2 Billion to pay off the “Yankee” tobacco company which is actually Swedish. Seems the same thing always come around time after time in SA.

Not going to happen. We've managed to keep independent from Argentina for over 150 years.
Now, whether it's a good place to invest depends on whether you're investing your own funds or other people's. In the latter case, investors tend to be over- optimistic and leave the nuts and bolts to third parties.
