    Business as usual!

    The argentine church gets around $5 billon pesos from argies taxpayer. They are the big “ñoquis” living from the state. They get tax exemption, salaries and pensions free paid by the state and all kind of subsidies for their private schools, etc.

    They use their fake statistics to put presion on any govt. to get more money.

    Just wonder what would be the answer of the ARG chuch if asked all the money they receive would be given directly to the poor?

    I can hear a big NO

    With the huge increase in the slums surrounding BA, they estimate there's over 2MM people living in them now, this figure is probably a bit light and will grow tremendously as the economy continues to grind to a halt and the tsunami of inflation hits next year.

    the universidad católica argentina, of course, is right.
    +/- 11 million live in poverty due to inflation, economic policies that encourages speculation over production, corruption, uncontrolled immigration, etc.

    and of course, the uca has a lot more credibility than anibaúl fernandez, the imbecile who said that there was not insecurity, but a sensación de inseguridad, that there was not inflation, etc.

    now, you bennys, fake yanks, etc try to shut the fuck up.

    Socialist governments need the poor as they are the ones who provide their voting base. As individuals become more prosperous they tend to change their voting habits and don't always look to the State for more hand-outs.

    Immigration flows is always a good indicator of the economic situation in a country. There are more and more Argies working here every day. The influx is sustained.

    In a normal day in town my morning coffee is served by a nice Argie lady in the cafe; my lunch is brought by an Argie waiter; my windscreen is washed by an Argie “student” at the traffic lights on the way to the pub where my pisco sour at the start of happy hour is shaken by an Argie. I am very happy for them to have jobs here. I am glad we can help in their time of need, the same way a previous generation of Chileans worked in Argentina when we were in trouble.

    But that was back in the last century when they were rich and won football. In this century they are poor and can't win any football cups. Unfortunately it often takes the poorly educated members of society a long time to move from denial to accept the reality of demise. Poor deluded souls.

    Poor Argentina. They can't even win in polo anymore. Who are the current polo world champions? Oh we are!

    I believe this to be accurate. Poverty has risen steadily since 2011 - when the dreaded cepo was introduced - and this trend will likely only continue if Scioli is elected.

    The only people that are better off today are the ones who are employed by the central govt, at the direct expense of everybody else. Of course, those people will claim that everything is fantastic, since they, themselves are better off. It shows what a perverted ideology socialism is.

    Argentina is trapped in an apparent never-ending downward spiral fuelled by deceit, conspiracy and utter ignorance. The leftist ideologues who frequent this board in support of the perverse K regime reminds me of the those Russians that, even today, will support Josef Stalin, simply because they and their families were better off under his reign (who cares about the 30M who died, they are dead anyway, right?).

    @3. $5 billon pesos? From a NATION with a proper, respected currency, about sixpence then. All over the world, religious and charitable organisations get tax exemptions and so forth. But, by all means, tax the argie church. One way to ensure that 10 million argies die. So, don't get me wrong, tax the argie church. Are you going “home” to take your chances?
    @6. But of course we know a shite. How long have we been telling you that you are one?
    @11. I think you're misguided. What good does it do to let slum-dwellers cross a border and survive? Where is there incentive to clean out the cesspit. Look at you, you've tossed a few pesos to four argies. And tips as well I suppose. If you were to demand that you are served by Chileans, the argies would have to leave. Even better, refuse them entry to Chile in the first place. Now they have an incentive to execute Kirchner & co. An incentive to pay their debts. Perhaps if the entire world were to refuse entry to argies, you would have shown the way! In the process of entry refusal, whilst in immigration detention, perhaps they could be spat on by everyone passing. Just so they understand their worth.

    Not misguided. It is a good deal for us. With the exception of the motochorros we generally get a good caliber of immigrant from Argentina. The ones who work in low skilled jobs are often trained for better. They come because there are opportunities here that they don't have at home. An option made more attractive by the lowest crime rates on the continent.

    And it is a two-way street. We gave them Nestor K's progenitor and they gave us Argie immigrant called Sampaoli. A good deal.

    Dany, yeah I lived across from the French Ambassador's Residence when I lived in BA before I move to the suburbs.

    Metro area of BA is 13MM

    So more than 15% in Slums is probably very conservative.

    Major 3rd world city with a great majority of the population living like its the 1700s without running water and dumping their sewage in the streets.

    The real Buenos Aires

    Its even worse in the outer provinces where poverty is blinding

    Even more disturbing after a “won decade” there are still hoards of dead eyed children picking through trash every night throughout the country and more in BA. If they're lucky they find a chicken that not quite gone bad...

    as i have wisely said, illegal immigration, most of all from the andean countries: perú, bolivia and chilotelandia are one of the reasons to have 11M under the poverty line.

    not only because they are poor per se, but also because they engage illegal activities, namely:
    peruvians: drug trade
    bolivians: drug production
    chilotes: pickpocketing

    the funny thing is that, thanks to this shitty govt, all those criminals who arrive here every fucking day from perú, bolivia and chilotelandia, have free access to healthcare, planes sociales, choriplanes, and whatever the fuck you want, all paid with our taxes.

    in that aspect and in many others, they are the same kind of parasite as the bennys

    Same pictures from 2001 of Villa 31, olds and movies.

    edition and have 2 books published.

    And not enough with that he is currently studing literacy in the UBA University.

    How many poor do you know in USA making movies of his own life, publishing his own books and having and studing a carreer in

    of BA no big deal and their life have improbed sustancialy

    @18. I'm sorry, but I do think you are misguided. Take the UK's current migrant problems as an example. We started off, years ago, with accepting migrants suitable for OUR needs who could meet certain criteria. Now, for Eritreans, Ethiopians, Somalis, Sudanese, Britain is paved with gold. I doubt it will be long before proper British citizens are posting themselves close to ports and motorway service areas armed with the closest they can get to sniper rifles. Try a few UK newspaper comment sections. People are losing patience. Send ships out into the Mediterranean to “save” illegal, economic migrants? Many say, “Let 'em drown”. In times past, the people of Britain would have been charitable. Not now. We're not paying for the worthless scroungers. At the moment you may have the “good” ones. But the worthless scroungers are looking over the border. False identities, false documents, false qualifications. Remember that argies lie as a matter of course. Do what you want. Just remember that I warned you. It might take 10, 20, 30 years.

    (Reuters) - Paul Singer, head of roughly $25 billion hedge fund Elliott Management, said Wednesday that Argentina was making matters worse for itself by not paying bondholders and that the country was on a “sad path” compared to its prior economic status.

    “They are imposing damage on themselves way out of proportion to the cost of paying the debt,” Singer said at the CNBC Institutional Investor Delivering Alpha Conference in New York.

    I can honestly tell you that I have never been robbed, assaulted, or feared for my life through violence, in Canada, the EU, the UK, or the US.

    I can't say the same for Asia and South America, however.

    I have good friends from Lima Peru.
    They have lived throughout Europe and SA.

    These are well-educated professionals. They have lived in Canada for 25 years and are glad they do.
    They travel frequently to SA and Peru.
    They told me that their friends and contemporaries have wonderful villas and beach houses with servants, and all very affordable by our standards in Canada.
    However, all of their friends have been robbed, and some express kidnapped.

    Many feel insecure in their own homes.

    My friends told me directly that they would prefer their more modest lifestyle in Canada to the insecurity, fear, and uncertainty of living in SA.

    sounds convincing to me.

    When you have been in Argentina in 1810?

    You are a big liar.

    A tourist cannot employ people in Argentina and less 5 and NOT ARGENTINE.

    At least you were imploying illegal inmigrants like is the rule in US with domestic workers, etc. because even politicians in US were found having a Margarita from chiguaga illegaly working for them.

    A tourist cannot open a bank account, cannot get tax id, cannot have legal business, cannot hire workers, cannot, cannot and cannot.

    These are the rules, you need at least to get a certificate of residency.

    To employ people in Argentina you have to be first a legal resident, have CUIT/CUIL (Tax ID), register your self as employee with AFIP (domestic, etc) and in the case the domestic worker as you say you have in ARG you need to pay the taxes and contribution for the worker using the form F102/RT link below.

    I know this because I have to sign these bloody forms every month for my domestic service that I hired from Bervelly Hills because I realised that was cheaper than to hire workers locally.

    Do you want to work for me?

    I have 5 toilettes in may house and I need someone persistent like you to keep them clean.

    You are a Pro liar, since when employees bill employers?

    If someone bills you he is not your employee or he works for a company service or he is self employed.

    Employees don't issue bills idiot.

    So you never have any employee to start with they were someone else employee of selfemployed.

    “I get the feeling you've not traveled much.”

    First I don't have to make your visa “wetback scam” as you do when travelling, because with my 2 passports I'm free to travel and live as I have done in any country among the schengen zone plus Mercosur.

    So normaly in a week I get my bank account plus the atm card in situ if I go to stay longer and I have a bank accounts in EU.

    So your travelling experiences like an illegal sounds like from someone with a passport from the 3er world.

    Ha ha

    “Plus most everyone in Argentina is paid in cash”

    Nope, people receive their payments through bank accounts, companies deposit the salaries into a especial account called (cuenta sueldo) and with an ATM card they can take the cash as they need.


    “DB has never been to Argentina. 50% of employees are on the black. How does he not know this?”

    Because is a lie, if you have a dometic service worker not registered and something happens to her/him you are in a big trouble because the worker is not insured by ART. And if the person dies by a heart attack for example this will cost at least USD70.000 in liabilities to cover the mess and you get an inmediate embargo by the court of your assets until you paid.

    “I stayed there for long periods and never needed an Argentine bank account. My landlord always wanted cash in dollars and this was the norm.”

    This is because you were as tourists and no having solvency in ARG and or doing the “wetback Rio Grande” trick (Living illegaly).

    If I rent an appartment I pay in pesos and cheaper than what a tourist pay for the same appartment and by wire transfer from any of my bank accounts.

    It would be necesary to remind everybody that there are different methodologies to measure poverty, then, it's expectable that all observatories will choose the one that is convenient for each of them, in order to use it politicly, sorry, but i am not inocent.
    There are other objetive facts that are much more relevant than what any little reliable statistic can say.
    It's well known that Argentina is a country with high levels of social unequality, in fact, before 1975, poverty and unemployment almost didn't exist, however, the disastrous economic plans, applied in the nation, ordered by the i. m. f., since the dictatorship untill 2001, made the country start XXI century, in the conditions of a beggar.
    While it is true that we had an important improvement of our social indexes, but we still can't have the same levels of before 1975, when unemployment was 2%.
    What some people who despise what kirchnerism represents don't want to see, is that if the situation of millons of our compatriots had improved just a little, f. p. v. would have ruled Argentina for three periods, which is a record since 2003, beside, we still would have a big number of argentines who leave the nation, as it used to happen in the 90's, and in 2000, 2001, 2002, etc.
    I recommend you to search in google, El perfil migratorio de la Argentina 2012, (Migratory profile of Argentina 2012), it's a too long report which reffers to the migratory behaviour of the argentines since XIX century, and you'll see also our actual migratory situation, it doesn't include only statistics of the argentine government.
    The problem of all those ignorants from outside, who often dare to tell us what we should do, and who underestimate us for being pro kirchnerists, is that they can't analize our situation, without taking into account, the reactionary view that hegemonical press in first world countries publishes about Argentina.

    319.24 only killed by their partners, 41.64 killed by her sons and 20,82 women killed by a member of their extended family.

    So Britain femicide rate is far higer than in Argentina lets say 2.776 times higher.



    The ‘Femicide Census’ which analyses data from official government statistics, found that out of 694 women, around 46 percent had been killed by their husbands, boyfriends or exes, often with knives or other sharp instruments.

    The research also found around 6 percent of women who had been killed were murdered by their sons.

    Additionally, 3 percent were killed by a member of their extended family – roughly the same percentage as those killed in burglary attacks. ”

We still have many pendent debts in social terms, but we aren't nobody's backyard anymore.

    Of course I deny that becuase simply is a lie.

    why including Prostitution, cocaine and heroine trade into GDP Stats like UK does is not a big scandal?

    And if Arg. does it is?

    The whole world, media, FMI, TE, FT, WP, Fox news, etc would point up fingers and Screaming!!!!!!!!

    Ah! can you see corruption in Argentina, fake statistics, no respect of the rule of law, etc. etc.

    But if UK does it to bust artificialy GDP it is so right and even the HMRC tax them while the bobby arrest her for being prostitute? haha

    can you see, cheating the statics is the rule what makes looks Argentina the more acurated country to make statistics in th world.

    Yesterday by chance I was watching in the local news ARG. a sad story about and extremely poor person according with the journalist

    (cartonero) with a very sad music played by violin like the pice of Ennio Morricone in “Cinema Paradiso” about how hard life if for him and

    almost was dying for hunger.

    In the middle of the interview the jounalist asked him “how much do you get” and “how long do you work picking up wasted stuff to for

    recycling?” expecting the misery amount...

    He was like Donald trump selling properties in NY telling all the prices and if was plastic, fabrics,etc.

    He says ehhhh yyyy working 5/6 hours around $500 pesos. What?

    Working 20 days at month he earns $10.000 like my friend in Germany in Düsseldorf (1000 Euros) after hungry tax eat who cannot afford to pay

    his rent anymore and he may be will end in Argentina.

    Poor and hungry Trapitos, they made $400/$500 per day so working 20 days per month he gets $8.000/$10.000

    So seriously can you consider someone earning $1000 Euros in Agentina to be counted as a person in extreme poverty?

    Wainting for your answer...

    “So you claim to be living in Germany and dreaming of Argentina.”


    Do you have any understanding problem?

    My friend is in Germany I'm In Argentina.

    You and your lads since I posted that video of campanopolis you assumed that I play games and I don'y know what shit...

    What happend problem to understand Spanish?

    So how could you grab the info to make your stats about 50% ARG. Economy is under reported by argies cheaters scamming the tax revenue system?

    So the explanation...

    This place is called Campanopolis is not a game it is real...

    It is a medieval village made by a man who was diagnosed to have cancer and 3 year life time left until death happens.

    So he desired to spend the rest of his life building a mediaval city in “Gonzales Catán” 30km from Buenos Aires city as therapy while waiting for his death.

    In a place that is always spotted by local media as a big slum full of crime and all this shit that La nacion and Clarinete like to use to make their point about poverty, etc.

    He designed and built the entire village without been an Architec or engineer with waste materials from demolition dumped stuff from old houses in Buenos Aires.

    In the end he lived 17 years more of what he was predited....

    So how can someone like me knows that without never been in Argentina?
