    OH MY!

    A worthless new digital currency is NOT the solution!

    A major CHANGE of government however is needed!

    It's estimated that the majority of Argentines believe that anyone except the incumbent government could do a better job.

    This current election may be the first time in decades that the Argentine population is satisfied with a change in government control.

    As I've earlier mentioned, they need the Virgin Maria to inject BILLIONS of Dollars into the Argentine treasury or some other miracle soon...

    I hope they come to their senses...

    Today my gypsy tribe has returned to Santiago and I need a rest from skiing for a day.

    It's only me and my faithful Dachshund marveling the snow...

    I have a beautiful sirloin thick steak on the counter and an excellent sweet onion for grilling along with a very good wine for savoring...

    (Although I'll share part of the steak with my dear dog, he prefers snacking on mini carrots.)

    Life is very enjoyable right now..

    Dear Tænk

    You can describe the worthless monitory instrument as you wish, but we both know it's another desperate failure by Sergio Massa.

    Meanwhile I'm still here in our gypsy encampment with my Dachshund pondering today's lunch...

    ...I'm strongly considering a sirloin steak with a perfectly baked potato with glazed buttered mini carrots...

    (Madame and our daughter remain in Cleveland.)

    I am not “describing” nothin' hermanito...
    I am calling different things by their different names...
    As CBDC's (Central Bank's Digital Currencies) and Cryptocurrencies are...

    Btw..., this “worthless monitory instrument” as you call it..., is being introduced officially in the European Union this autumn...
    (Even your beloved ”Shilean Central Bank is working on it...:

    Tænk

    Comparing the Banco Central de Chile to your Argentine disaster is a sad comment on the relative status of the comparative valour of your once former Peso.

    It's a self inflicted disaster to your country...

    I took a few runs this morning and returned to reheat the baked potato while grilling the steak -while basting with garlic butter. I finished dressing the potato also with garlic butter and plain yogurt.

    My Dachshund also really enjoyed the steak.

    I am not “comparing” nobody with no-one .., hermanito...

    - I'm just clearing your confusion and lack of information about CBDC's (Central Bank's Digital Currencies)...

    More than 50% of the Worlds Nations will have fully implemented the CBDC Financial System in the next five- year period... (And the rest will soon follow...)

    - Kind of you..., taking good care of that luuuvely teutonic induced dwarfism genetic mutation of a dog..., btw...

    You might be surprised at how it does. People don't trust the antiquated banking system any more.

    TWIMC...

    Impossible to know if the Anglo poster just above is talking to me..., or to the Great Spaghetti Monster in the Sky...

    Impossible to know if the Anglo poster just above is in favour or against CBDC's..., Cryptocurrencies..., investments in Gold..., Silver or Manzoni's cans of ”Merda d'Artista...

    These MAGA types as the one above..., Tænk that making short, generalistic comments makes them look smart...


    They are wrong...
