    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.

    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.

    It will take 2 generations to fix this very simple problem.

    Re-Education camps would be the best solution.

    What a shame.
    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.

    America, Germany and Japan are trying to create inflation in their economies.

    They have been mismanaged for years, ever since that prat Peron came to power and blew Argentina's wealth on bribes to pals and bad investments. They are that stupid that they keep on electing the same type of people who worship Peron. Within a year this Macri will be gone in a coup and the daft buggers will put another put another twit on the throne to rip them off further. Which actually is good news for the Falklands as a weak ind ineffective Argenstubidena can only gnash its teeth against them.

    @5 “....They have been mismanaged for years, ever since that prat Peron came to power...”

    Let's try to understand one thing: it is not just Peronism. Massive incompetence and corruption were embedded long before Peronismo. Argentina has never been decently governed, with or without Peronism. True, Peronismo tends to make things more of less consistently worse then they need to be, but the unwillingness of the population to select and support decent governance is a fault of the cultural DNA and not any particular party.

    Cultural DNA is such a grand way to describe the rg predilection for general societal deviancy.

    @7 “Cultural DNA is such a grand way...”

    -- I actually stole the expression from the local language, argentensis. The term “ADN Cultural” has long been used here.

    I was unaware of that. I used the phrase here a couple of years ago.

    I don't know if the behavior patterns are actually genetically hardwired but they sure are deeply ingrained - almost universally.
