    The economist's Argentine forecast

    Five years after the crash.... the economy is recovering but the country's middle class whose savings were wiped out by the crisis is still impoverished. As for the poor, they are getting poorer. I didn't do my homework or give any stats but I think I got pretty close to the mark yes?

    The economic future from Argentina

    Forget teaching culture. There are many an Argentine mother who might appreciate someone teaching their children to do their own laundry before they are 30 years old.

    Piermo, probably the easiest way to extend your stay in Argentina is to cross the border into Uruguay then turn around and come back into Argentina, stamped for 90 more days. Using a tourist visa. I think you can also pay 100 pesos at immigrations to have your tourist visa stamped for 90 more...

    Buenos Aires offers Tango and Tango is sexy. If you speak to young Argentine people, many say Tango is for old people like their grandparents. I never saw my grandmother dancing like that.

    Why are Argentines so arrogant???

    "The "arrogance" and the machismo are there to compensate for deep-seated inferiority complexes and profound doubts about ethnic and cultural identity." Bigbadwolf, your the man.

    The economic future from Argentina

    "tourism will soon decline and the contruction is a boom and will soon bust." I don't see tourism declining pericles, I think it's going to grow. The construction boom will slow, it has to, it already is slowing. Inflation is the concern for rank and file Argentines right now.

    Common misconceptions?

    "It's good to hear from the people who don't look at the world through rose-colored glasses. I'd hate to see this site censored just because some of the people don't agree with their postings." Keep in mind some people have financial interest in promoting BA and Argentina as a cheap Paris. Some...

    Buenos Aires shocking accident rate

    Wouldn't enforcing the traffic laws generate a huge revenue for the cities, villages and provinces?I mean a policeman here could sit on any corner and write ticket after ticket all day long. Think of the pesos that would generate for the local governments. I'm thinking yes but there has to be a...

    Kids In Need!

    I would advise against giving money. Many times criminals have children working (begging) for them and the money is later turned over to them.School supplies is a good idea, food, clothing...nessesities. That's a better way. Also you don't need to give through an agency. I myself don't trust...
