    CFKs regime reminds me of the Little Dutch Boy.

    Every member of her government is using every finger and every toe to block the holes in the economy but eventually they'll run out of appendages.

    it seems this imbecile does not know that the central bank cannot decide any devaluation.
    devaluation is produced every fucking day through inflation.

    all these corrupt wankers will finish their days in jail or in the islets, as they deserve.

    You can guarantee Argentina hasn't fixed it's money problems overnight with this baboon running the central bank. Continuing to borrow more money to throw at bloated soccial programs does nothing in the long run.
    I didn't think inflation was too bad over the last couple of months untill I went food shopping on Saturday. Some products are up 25% from when I last checked.

    You should see a HUGE spike in inflation Q1-2 2015. They're pumping more $ into the system this last quarter than they did the last year!

    BTW Venezuela wants its U$1B in overdue oil bills.
    That should be fun to watch

    This guy looks scared to death, if he's not careful he will be sucking on the end of the microphone, or something similar to get out of trouble.

    Those damn Yanquis and their pathetic dollar.

    ”The Yen — an important regional currency — recently sank to a seven-year low against the now mighty U.S. dollar (USD). This is putting downward pressure on the Korean won and other Asian currencies.

    The situation is similar in Africa where the Kenyan shilling has hit a three-year low against the USD; the Nigerian naira recently set an all-time low against the dollar; the Ghanaian cedi has shed over 25 percent of its value against the greenback this year.“

    But more importantly here -

    ”The big Latin American loser is the Venezuelan bolivar, followed by the hopeless Argentine peso.”

    There's floatin' and there's sinkin' ... Take your pick ; )

    @7 yankeeboy
    BTW Venezuela wants its U$1B in overdue oil bills.

    Any useful links to this? I'm interested. Thanks.
    On a more historical note, from 1937;
    “ECONOMICALLY, Argentina has long been virtually a British colony. The United Kingdom is both the best customer and the chief source of imports of the country ; 85 per cent. of the railways are in British hands and the British dominate in other public utilities ; in shipping, the United Kingdom is over three times ahead of its nearest competitor, Greece ...”

    ... interesting....

    You are so ridiculous it's not even amusing. The US dollar lost on average 57% of its VALUE between 2000 and 2012!

    So the “mighty” dollar even today is still well off the levels it trade in the 1990s and early 2000s. All of the rises the dollar has seen are from all-time lows.

    No one's impressed.

    “Ridiculous” - 'moi'?

    Shoot the messenger why don't you. I provided quoted from an article by Steve H Hanke, who seemingly possesses an attractive pedigree.

    As for your point about the decline of the Dollar - hmmm Peso or Dollar??

    I'll have to think about that one : )

    The frightened Hedgehog speaks !

    The look on his face says volumes: It appears that CFK is standing to his right, behind the curtain, either telling him to zip it, or she's giving him the finger.

    Bad Times in Buenos Aires.
    It’s already a chaotic Thursday as a public transportation strike and a massive blackout hit the city of Buenos Aires this morning, sending the population into a frenzy. And it’s not even December yet.

    A massive, unescapable clusterfuck....

    They'll be into hyperinflation soon...3...2...1

    It is currently bouncing around 130/1. Which is a 30% change in one month.
    I think the brakes have failed on this bus.
