    New times hermanito...

    1) It is becoming increasingly difficult..., not to say almost impossible for anybody from anycountry to maintain undeclared offshore banking accounts anywhere...


    3) Capisce...?

    REF...: Wealth Taxes...

    Time-hounored and effective taxation mechanisms..., Wealth Taxes as four European Nations kept until today..., and many others are good on their way to re-establish..., as a sensible and logical form of financing their Countries out of this Covid19 mess we all are in...

    Willing to bet CFK & Co don’t have to pay a penny (Peso) and very little of what is collected, which won’t be much, will go where it is supposed to.

    Is the sad reality for Argentina.

    Seems you’re more closely related to the humble Turnip than anyone, Stink.

    Did you see the above “Wonder what part of the word ***“Undeclared”***..., the above Ignorant Anglo Turnip didn't understand...” ???

    Words of wisdom from the 'undeclared' Chubut Turnip...“undeclared” means “undeclared”',
    i.e., usually associated to 'unknown', and likely to remain so unless the owner of such assets is being investigated for something, shall we say, dishonest ?....capisce ?

    But getting back to the story, without a doubt, the Fernandez couple, along with their cronies in government (including Congress and the Judiciary) have been excluded from the list of 12,000 wealthy contributors.....Socialism at its best....99% of the cash 'confiscated' will just be transferred to 'other' offshore accounts by Albertito and Cristinita.

    I'll bet Reekie must be grateful that he doesn't live there anymore, and his fortune is safe in Canada....even though he won't admit it.
