Falklands have a per capita GDP “ten times higher than Argentina”

Full article 83 comments

Argentina's financial daily, El Cronista Comercial has published two articles on the Falkland Islands based on data from the 2014 Statistical Yearbook stating that the Islands enjoy a GDP per capita several times higher than Argentina and that the economy has been expanding at 11% annually since 2008.

    It is getting harder and harder to peddle the lie that the Falkland Islanders would be better off being part of Argentina.

    Perhaps they will eventually purchase a CT Scanner so that Paul can stop worrying.

    “Furthermore Ms Thatcher adopted a protection attitude towards the Islanders and granted them full British citizenship”

    I was not sure of the precise status of the People of the Falklands.

    This is game, set and match for any Argentinian expansionist/colonial ambitions.

    The people of the Falklands are British citizens.

    They should immediately request, note request, not order or demand as Argentina bullies people, but they should request to be removed from the UN decolonization list.

    Note being made of the Free, Fair and internationally monitored referendum the peoples of the Falklands took part in recently.

    As for the Argentinian claims on the territory, It should be suggested that if Argentina wishes the Falklands to remain on the Decolonization list they should immediately apply to the ICJ.

    If Argentina does not apply to the ICJ, lets be generous and give them one month, then the UN should take it that the claim for sovereignty by Argentina has been withdrawn.

    Of course , they fail to mention the rent the US government pays for HMS Penguin , the submarine base on W Falkland or the listening and monitoring station on Tumbledown .
    There is a casual reference to mining , but the figures derived from uranium mining are never disclosed in any case .

    You of course are right about the mining or should I say “de-mining” that is going on in the FALKLANDS, but unfortuneatly it is costing money, not to mention endangering lives. Anyway the Nuclear Penquins are on standby for any incursion buy a foreign state.

    Perhaps Argentina should invite the FIG to take over in Buenos Aires. I'm sure they'd do a better job than Kirchner.

    Instead of “Malvinas Argentinas”, you could have “Argentina Malvinas”...

    @6. How about the Islanders tell the UN that it is no longer recognised by the Falkland Islands Government? The FIG should take the opportunity to point out that neither the United Nations Fourth Committee nor the C-24 has done ANYTHING FOR the Islanders in over 40 years. Neither have even complied with the UN Charter. Britain should beef up the garrison. For instance, any Type 23 frigates should be deployed to the Falklands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands instead of being scrapped. When the time comes, don't scrap Tornados, send them to the Falklands. Deploy gun crews and pilots from the UK until the Falklands can provide personnel. The Royal Falklands Navy and Royal Falklands Air Force. No problem with this. Gibraltar has the Royal Gibraltar Regiment even though defence is a UK responsibility. The Falklands has the FIDF. We should quit throwing aircraft and ships away when our people could use them. Just imagine the argie surprise when vessels of the RFN steam out to meet them. Or Tornados of the RFAF head for Buenos Aires.

    I love the mention of the Sovereign Wealth Fund. When Norway decided to remain outside the EU, but affiliated to it in a free trade zone, it was the best decision they made. As a consequence, instead of pumping money into the EU, Norway was able to build a substantial wealth fund.

    The Norwegian Wealth Fund owns 1% of all listed companies worldwide and 3% of the equity of all European companies.

    Their DAILY revenue in interest and dividends alone is over $ 750 million ($270 Billion per year) and the wealth fund is in the Trillions of dollars.

    The 5 million Norwegians could sit back and not work at all for the rest of their lives and they would still be richer than any other country in Europe. Mind you, a lager in Oslo will set you back £8 per pint!

    The fact is that the Falkland Islanders stand to gain phenomenal amounts of royalties for the oil exploration, let alone the fishing licenses and if this is pumped into a Sovereign Wealth Fund, then life in the Islands will become extremely comfortable with cheap utilities, fabulous infrastructure, all the leisure amenities you could want and cheap transportation around the Islands.

    With a bit of development the wild beauty of the Falklands can be available to even more people seeking a quiet retirement. The Falklands may have a coldish climate, but there's no doubt that they are a natural paradise for the wildlife.

    I'm glad that the Falkland Islands Government has not let the revenues make them spend beyond their means. So many oil rich countries have damaged their land by spending on a concrete jungle, only to find out that they destroyed nature in the process.

    I also agree with Conqueror. The FIG ought to consider buying the surplus UK warships. Type 42s and Type 23s and then using them as accommodation ships for the oil workers.

    The power generation & desalination plant could provide a useful back up to the electric grid/water supply and when the ship is no longer needed, a stationary missile platform.

    @6. Argentina has had 92 years to take its so-called sovereignty case to the ICJ and by not doing the has acquiesced to British possession through 'extinction prescription.' Add 'conquest and subjugation' 'immemorial possession,' 'Convention of Settlement peace treaty' and 'the right to self-determination' to the mix and anyone who seriously believes in Argentina's case is seriously deluded or employed to continue the fantasy.

    “Falklands have a per capita GDP “ten times higher than Argentina””

    how the fuck can you compare the gdp of a whole country with the gdp of a pair of islets, eh?
    it would be like comparing the gdp of lomas de san isidro with the ddp of the uk.
    and of course the gdp of san isidro would be a lot higher the gdp of britain.

    this newspaper and its parasite readers are a joke, really.

    17
    the difference, you 1/4wit is that buenos aires is a city and porko stanley is a tiny little village.
    and the city of buenos aires, like san isidro or vicente lopez did not suffer any flooding, you marmota.

    the problems were mostly in la plata and southern gran buenos aires.

    anyway, it would be like joking about the flood in britain of 2013.
    only an imbecile would be able to do it.

    @23 paulcedron

    It is you who is the imbecile, as it is obvious that you haven't got a clue about how economic data is compared between countries.

    Basically each person in the Falklands is 10 times better off than each person in Argentina. That doesn't mean that the Falkland Islands are richer than Argentina, seeing that there are only about 3000 of them compared to 40 million Argentines, but what it does mean that if the Falklands had 40 million people they would be 10 times richer than Argentina.

    As usual you mention the fact that the Falklands doesn't have a CT or MRI. That is because currently they're not necessary, although once their population grows they may well invest in one or both diagnostic tools.

    Because that is what they are...diagnostic tools, and the human race managed quite well without them for many years with doctors using only their knowledge, skills and experience to diagnose ailments and injuries.

    CT scanners and MRI's don't heal people and they are not a magic cure. If someone on the Falklands requires a CT or MRI then they would be flown to the UK or to the British hospital in Montevideo.

    All you show with your post is your ignorance, your impotence, and your jealousy that such a small community can run itself far more successfully than Argentina can.

    It must be so frustrating for you to know what a complete failure your country is, and to be constantly shown up by the Falklands.

    Falklands = success
    Argentina = failure

    The real gap is much worse than that because nobody really knows the official GDP data is for Argentina and that one fixed to the blue dollar rate not the official rate that the government sets. Colombia for sure, and likely Chile too will be bigger economies than Argentina by the end of 2015. Will have to wait for new INDEC numbers for much better accuracy.

    @Paul
    Each Health Trust in the UK deals with approx half a million people and needs only one major imaging department. You can get a lot of diagnostic info quickly from X-ray and Ultrasound and save the CT and MRI for when it is really needed. Most people will never need either and thus the machines would be massively underused in a small population. So i really don't understand your obsession.

    Troy, if I had to make a critic about the article I would say well you know its a small island, the people that run the place obviously now everyone, the tax payer can see where the money is spent, very low population density and they have the fishing licenses to sell and so on. Of course Argentina's GDP per capita is lower. Even US GDP per capita is lower than the FI GDP per capita, the problem is that it is x 10 bigger to Argentina's.

    https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/2004rank.html?countryname=Uruguay&countrycode=uy&regionCode=soa&rank=80#uy

    But now to bitch around and insult everyone about “hey a hood in San isidro or Recoleta is just as rich” when that is not true, or come around with that there is no CT machines, its just completely out of perspective with the complete mess Argentina is right now and just childish and pathetically jealous attitude.

    I quite agree with you, of course it is easier to manage a smaller population like the Falklands. Corrections and results are seen much faster too.
    However, to the credit of the Islanders, they are enjoying a higher standard of living, due to their hard work and well regulated society - it's no free ride, and nothing PabloCabanaBoy should be criticising.

    I think Anglotino has identified why P. CabanaBoy behaves that way.

    I'm sure there are many hard working and responsible Argentines, but there are many bitter underemployed and unemployed like Pablo CabanaBoy, who feel entitlement.

    They will never feel fulfilled, either because of their own laziness, or because the government's inept economics have robbed them of opportunity.

    I can understand why they are an embarrassment to you.

    I would feel sorry for them, but they are so abusive of foreigners and others, that I just don't care.

    43. Plus another thing to notice he is mixing and confusing Income with GDP.

    I would expect the GDP of a gated community or a wealthy residential area to be actually pretty low. Basically because there are no transactions in them and they have no output other than the services the people that live in them provide elsewhere. The people (rich as they may be) that live in them work and have capital and real output in other areas of the city. You dont have a factory or a massive shop in a country club. Just golf or tennis clubs. Even most consumption of goods is done elsewhere. They just take home the income. But that is not how you measure GDP.

    #45 GDP of a gated community would be pretty low but GDP is not really the relevant measure but GNP is. GNP in a wealthy gated community would be far higher than any whole country.

    Im not so sure, because you already have a low GDP base in which you add what citizens of the gated community earn elsewhere to make up for GNP. If you live in a country club in the nothern outskirts of BA but say have a business in La Matanza, then most of the economic activity is done in La Matanza, pay the local employees, pay suppliers, rent, Matanza taxes, etc. I would use income per household of the gated community vs the whole country to portrait the difference.

    You clearly missed the letters GDP in big black capitals in the articles title.

    China is perhaps the richest country on earth, perhaps number 2. However most Chinese people are as poor as church mice. This was doubly evident when I was in Shanghai being ferried around in a chauffeur driven Range Rover Sport a couple of years ago. For example I remember seeing one lady cleaning a stretch of road (as polluted as the air is, litter is almost non existent, anywhere) whilst her pre school age child played very near by so clearly child care provision isn't that great.

    However this won't always be the case because of the importance the Chinese put on education. Each generation will become ever wealthier. But for now Chinese GDP per capita sucks. It is about individual wealth and quality of life.

    I would have thought that an intelligent person would be able to make the distinction.

    Thank you for your too kind offer, niño, but l like it here.
    l've lived in big cities, l've lived in the mountains, in the jungles & islands of S.E.Asia. l don't need to travel to BsAs.
    l like the peace & quiet.
    l would say that these lslands are maybe too good for me!
    So.........no thank you.
    @58 José Malodorous,

    What is a “vermin off shit”?

    Blame and insult CabezaDura as a Chilean. So this means → Flk GDP lower than a gated community in San Isidro.
    FAIL.

    LOL YOU RETARD

    That figure you have is 10 YEARS OLD!!!!!! And its GDP, not GDP per capita. BsAs= CABA + Conurbano is over 16 Million people. And 2 million of them live in slums alone.
    You dont understand totals and percentages. It doesn't matter if Argentina is 45 MM and the islands is 3200 ppl. You have high, middle, low class in any case. This is the most basic concept that you fail to grasp.

    Its a matter of totals. US, Aus, Canada GDP is not to far from the FI GDP as the CIA factbook ranking states. The suprise is not that Falklands/Malvinas GDP is higher than Argentina, the real problem is that it is 10 times bigger.

    Sao Pablo State is bigger economy than the whole of Argentina put together.

    F.ck you dont even now basic stuff, you seem to be pretty limited. Are your parents brother and sister??

    And Since mid 2007 any estimate of Argentine GDP is fake since the numbers of INDEC are altered. And there is no way CABA reaches the 20th most wealthiest cities on the planet by Gdp per capita terms....

    Pablo CabanaBoy - “illegal chilote”,
    exhibits all the worst racist discrimination traits of the arrogant “ugly Argentinian”.

    Sure, CabanaBoy, blame your social ills on “illegals” and foreigners!!

    Everyone “knows ” Chileans are inferior.

    What an Idiota.
    Sorry CD, people like Pablo give all Argentinians a bad name by their actions.
    They also allow corruption and social problems continue, through their inaction.

    Ironically, fewer foreigners will be coming to Arg “for a better life”, and more wil head towards Chilé, a PA member with a stable economy.

    One thing for sure, Pablo's quality of living is deteriorating - and it's the fault of people like him.

    He had nothing to feel superior about.

    Falklands are a country Paul. Like many ignorant people you can't differentiate between country, nation, state and nation-state. Hardly surprising considering your lack of education.

    And BsAs is NOT the “20th richest city in the world”.

    “Suck an egg, you moron”

    You talking about that Argentine airbase again?

    Why don't you make Moron your capital instead of BA-it would be more appropriate.

    @74
    If Jewitt claimed the Falkland Islands for the United Provinces, in 1820, explain why he (from the USA by the way), fought for Brazil against Argentina later?

    Also if you have read history you will find that Jewitt was not sent to the Falklands to claim them for the United Provinces as they (UP)did not know he was there.

    That is like me going to Patagonia and claiming it for the UK, but without the UK government knowing about the fact I am going to claim.

    Therefore Jewitt's claim is bogus.

    Also, he was engaged in piracy at the time which I thought you were against?

    Does this mean that the Falkland Islands enjoy a GDP per capita several times higher than ANY country in Lat Am?

    I'm quite surprised that a lot more of them are not applying to become a B.o.T.

    It's not all bad news for José. Just think about it...

    He has a corrupt government that is bent on stealing all it can from the population. The economy is about to implode, millions will be out of a job and they have a currency that NO ONE wants..... With a list like that he should apply for Argentina to be a member of the EU.

    It would, I am sure, be a perfect fit.
