    Prices up. Consumption down.

    The Argentines continue to enjoy, or rather endure, the perks of the Macri government, which before being elected in late 2015 on promises of achieving Argentina's Joyful Revolution.

    @ i

    You have a lot of ideological certainties but no information whatsoever about what's going on in Argentina.

    Your ignorance shows in your use of hateful adjectives without a single argument.

    Even prudently hiding behind a nickname, you should be ashamed of the garbage you print here.

    Kamerad/Komrade, you support totalitarian regimes that engage in arresting people and put them in camps for speaking out against injustice, use torture and murder with impunity, not to mention invading and stealing peaceful people's land. A hardened murderous ideologue and extremist, you clearly have no have no shame, and never will. Your attempts to talk down to anyone in here are risible at best, and your continuing attempts to dox people are just what I'd expect from a Peronist supporter of Narcokleptocracy, whether in Argentina, Cuba, or Venezuela. Your continuous attempts to get your filthy claws on public money have failed miserably, as your neighbors have figured out you are an extremist, in spite of the chameleon weasel act. But on the bright side, you won't be doing it forever, and I certainly look forward to the day you can no longer harm anyone. :)

    Argentine consumers ALWAYS spend less in July! If you look at consumer spending in Argentina it follows a cycle and always decreases in their winter. I can't see any obvious trend in the data - it looks like it has followed the same pattern for the last 5 years or so, with maybe a slight increase under Macri. So this seems like a non-story which Reekie has jumped on as fuel for his propaganda.

    Temperature down. Consumption down. Nothing to see here.
