A clear majority of Argentines are most worried about inflation and unemployment, a report by the D’Alessio IROL and Berenzstein private consulting agencies have showed.
According to the study released on Sunday, 86% of the survey respondents said inflation is the major concern, triggered by “the hikes in power and gas rates and their consequences in the personal economy” as people cannot make ends meet.
Data also showed that the rise in the prices of goods and services worries both those who voted for Mauricio Macri and those who voted for Daniel Scioli in the November 22 presidential runoff.
The report highlights as well that 57% of those who were polled said unemployment was a big concern too.
Earlier this week, a report by another consulting agency, Ibarometro, showed that 67% of Argentines considered the country’s economic situation negative with 41.5% saying it is “bad” and 25.12% saying it is “very bad”.
The poll was released on the same day that fuel at the pumps was increased 10%, adding up to 31% since the beginning of the year.

And when exactly did inflation occur, yes, you guessed it under the dictatorship of one TMBOA thats when. Macri I hope is going to address the fact, I read somewhere that Argentina need $ 37 billion just to pay its debts this year. Isn't fortunate for TMBOA to be out of office and doesn't have to deal with this. What a legacy, just like when Brown left a note saying there is no money left we got over it.May 02nd, 2016 - 09:54 am 0
They have got to teach the Argys that it's not the gov't responsibility to give them a wage or ensure they live a good life.May 02nd, 2016 - 11:01 am 0
It will take 2 generations to fix this very simple problem.
Re-Education camps would be the best solution.
What a shame.May 02nd, 2016 - 11:15 am 0
A potentially rich country mis-managed by a government more concerned by stealing someone else's land than by successfully running their own.
Argentina is too good for the Argentines.
