The International Monetary Fund (IMF) slightly improved its outlook on Argentina’s economy saying the country will grow 0.1% in 2015 and will remain stagnant in 2016. Nevertheless, IMF warned the country is going through a “very delicate” situation and insisted that the improved outlook doesn’t change its views regarding Argentina. Read full article

    The Improbable Mission Fund has no credibility. Hell, they once had the previously discredited Jo Stiglitz as chef economist (no misprint - he was cooking the books then just like the current clowns are now). imf is soft selling the metrics to try to massage rotting roadkill back into the fold with the rest of the sheep.

    rotting roadkill is in a full blown recession verging on a collapse and depression.

    .01% “growth” with 19 mos of decreasing mfg? Somebody is lying.
    This so called “growth” after pushing 40% more pesos into the economy over the last year...

    I stand by my predictions.

    They've been in deep recession since 2011.
    If they ever get a legitimate gov't that puts out real numbers I will be proved correct
    as I always am

    Porridge Wogs

    I think Voice is mad because England said they're not subsiding windmills any longer.
    I seem to remember telling him they would never be profitable w/o massive gov't subsidies
    Stupid eco nazis.
    I guess I was right again.

    Don't you know? We don't care what the IMF says. Nestor Kirchner freed Argentina of its recessionary measures by paying off the country's debt with the IMF, back in 2006. It was a most memorable day.
    Just for that feat, Nestor deserves a statue.

    10 Retard Reekie, CFK has lied, cheated, used every political maneuver that is possible to stay in the IMF. She could have resigned the membership long ago but didn't.

    It makes me sad when old people are still stupid.

    How lucky I'm by living in Argentina one of the most prosperous and richest countries in the world and now thanks to ElaineB investigation over 50% unreported informal economy in Argentina the country is enjoying a new per capita of U$s40.000 comparable with Finland and France and surpassing poor UK fullof pijamas.

    What else can you ask for?
    Nice country
    Very Rich
    No porvety on it
    Good looking women
    larges citieslike Buenos Aires
    Class & style
    all climates
    alot of fun

    Sometime I feel so sorry for those poor souls who have to live in war zone places fearing to be killed by the police, the criminals or their own corrupts politicians who push them to starvation...

    You can easily see the difference between the people from a civilised country like Argentina and the war zone countries where there are not respect for the rule of law, the value of people life, education, etc.

    I really don't blame them for their jealousy, hatred and bitter ressentiment toward Argentina.

    I know for sure that Pope Francis will also forgive them despite their uncivilised and rude behaviours...

    God bless you guys I promise you I will keep donating money to charities and pay taxes in he EU so you can keep cheating ours socials systems.

    In the Thirties, Argentina was one of the world's top 10 most prosperous countries. Now it's down there with Zimbabwe and North Korea. Corruptina is doing a fantastic job. Keep it up, girl.

    Pure rubbish in 1930 argentina was full of poors living in shaty towns around buenos aires there are documntal showing this.

    That was the reason why Peron was so succeful in elections because he was the first to provide wealth to inmigrant workers and poors in Argentina.

    So if your surname wouldn't be like Rivadavia, Saavedra, Pereira Iraola, etc. and that kind of conservative policy would be still in place sure you will be in the villa 31 living today.
