    PASO Election Results

    Yes exactly my point.The large corporate companies who have enough money to advertise on TV, have influence with the government and so on are the companies that don't follow the rules as I mentioned in the previous post, or they find loopholes. Just because they have visibility doesn't mean...

    PASO Election Results

    This is what people don't understand. There are businesses who are trying to implement positive social change with their products and hiring people in the community. They follow regulations to a T, and then find themselves bankrupt, the former employees now have to go work a Temp job as a...

    PASO Election Results

    It's not a starting point, it's a consideration when a business hires someone. It's a consideration made across the world, not just the US. If you didn't consider costs of labor then you'd go out of business pretty quickly. It hurts PYMES and companies who are trying to be compliant the most...

    PASO Election Results

    I do think labor reform of some sort is needed. It would also increase hiring in cases because many businesses are so cautious to take on new employees because of all the cost associated with letting them go, if needed. I agree with some of JxC ideas that can be deciphered from their vague...

    PASO Election Results

    This is a good question. Last time it was to take on massive dollar denominated debt, keep the printing press on, remove capital controls, have all that debt then go right out the door again in capital flight, take on loans from the IMF, jack up interest rates to 80%, inflation still sky high...

    When will Argentina be open for tourists to enter?

    Yup, at this point, it's all about economics. Once borders open again dollars are going to be leaving at a faster rate than entering, or that's the calculation of the government. And to BAHibs this isn't an anti government opinion from opposition voices. It's a cost benefit analysis done by...

    Vidal buys half-million dollar condo in Recoleta's "La Isla" luxury zone.

    All these politicians should be living in monoambientes with their salaries and somehow they are all rich.

    Vidal buys half-million dollar condo in Recoleta's "La Isla" luxury zone.

    Not a fan of PRO, but a $500,000 condo purchase is a scandal?

    Is there any use for crypto in Argentina?

    It's available on eth and sol. The eth version is an erc20 token and sol is a spl token. You can swap SOL for USDC in your phantom wallet, or you can buy USDC with SPL withdrawals from FTX exchange. As you already probably know Solana transactions are pennies. Solana is starting to catch on a bit.

    Is Cristina finally making her move?

    Saved by soy. God must be a Kirchnerista. Soy prices were up 40% in 2020 from 2019. It's really that simple. Who is president doesn't matter. Soy prices is what matters.

    Is Cristina finally making her move?

    If that statistic is accurate it's because they take the size of the middle class of when the economy collapsed and the Kirchners took over. 2000 to 2014 was the commodity cycle and you'll see most other Latin American countries who are dependent on low US interest rates and high commodity...

    Is Cristina finally making her move?

    Redpossum point #1 may be true, but at the start of the Kirchner years the economy was decimated, so you're starting at a very low level to begin with, you weren't going to go down further from there. Also, those 12 years coincided with the soy, corn, wheat supercycle save the last few years...

    Argentina’s President Calls Crypto a ‘Hard Currency’ that Can Fight Inflation

    It's not cryptocurrency, it's digital currency. There is a difference. The problem is when you have debt in a foreign currency, you can't print because it devalues your currency and makes it more expensive to pay off the debt. That is the cycle Argentina always finds itself in. One government...
