    Tough Times Ahead?

    The current government economic policies could never work over the long term and their shortcomings are becoming more evident daily. In my opinion major economic problems or a meltdown are just a matter of time. I am just curious what economic policies are you referring to? On what do you base...

    lawyers or people good with law

    8.000 or 10.000 is too expensive just to set up a "regular", local company. The price will vary for example if you have a foreign company and you want your foreign company to be a shareholder of the local company. That would require additional work.

    Jedard, you disgust me. Not because of "what" you say, but rather "the manner" in which you express your ideas. I don’t care how argentine your wife is. Matty, your sarcasm is getting boring. Try something else to get a laugh from the rest of the expatriates...

To be honest I am not a veggie lover but I purchased tomatoes for my daughter and learned that the kilo of tomatoes was aproximately 3 pesos.

    Re: These prices are killing me - 2

    The only thing I agree with Ramon is in regard to paying high prices for specific goods. Everything else I do not. Argentina is not a socialist country. The middle class is actually in a better position that it was a few years ago. What do you think triggered the increase in consumption? It...

    Deteriorating relations with the US

    Thanks for your answer. It illustrates why SOME Americans are disliked around the world (and particularly in Argentina). People like yourself, are the reason, why there would be hostility in the first place. The 3:1 exchange has been beneficial to the Argentine economy, and by the...
