    I know far too much about this topic so ask if you any questions. But aren’t you from a strange land that isn’t the US?

    Anyone here pay double taxes as an Argentinian resident and US Citizen?

    Short answer: if you follow the letter of the law, then you have to pay income taxes in both countries, on income you make anywhere in the world! So it is double taxation kinda but... first see the above comment about the foreign earned income exclusion: in the US, If you do some paperwork to...

    Dry Cleaner Viveza Criolla

    You know, “viveza criolla” is Argentine slang that means some combination of “street smarts” plus “chutzpah” plus “ripping people off just because you can get away with it to make an extra cent” plus “taking advantage of people because if you don’t, YOU are the sucker.” So.... I found it funny...

    New - Wanting to move to BA asap

    Wow this may be the first time ever I agree bajo_cero but he's right on the mark. The only way to do it for an American here, if you want to make a non-trivial salary, is to work remotely for American companies/clients. Also, there is a class of "permatourists" from first world countries here...

    English skill

    The overwhelming majority of the over-educated sub-40 crowd does. However, among the rest of the population (Ie, everyone else except for those who are both very educated and also under 40) does not. Of course there are many exceptions.

    Seeking Tutor For Making Videos

    Hey everyone! I think it would be fun (and very modern!) to be able to make fun videos. But I have no idea how to go about it, and I'm too busy to delve in to lots of Internet research to figure out the methods, tools, and best practices. My goal is purely for fun - like making little meme...

    How can i finance a new car here?

    Arturino! This is about the one case per million in which I agree with Bajo Cero: "Car financing has very low requirements because by the time you got it you already paid for it and you owe another 2 cars. This is for poor people. Buy cash." He's actually right on the ball. Don't do it. Stop...

    Upcoming Software Upgrade

    Thanks for the upgrade! Question - I'm being stupid and I want to edit my neighborhood and I don't see the option. It still says I'm in Palermo. I think I'm being blind!

    Where Do You Buy Your Clothes From?

    See Ben’s joke in the other thread: only the rich can afford to shop in the Alto Palermo; middle class Argies shop in Miami.

    Tell Me What You Want

    BTW i was then one who proposed collective moderation, not Ben - and he responded in this thread that he liked the idea :) give me credit where it is due :) That said I agree 100% Ben would be a great moderator. (And I have zero interest in being one.) That said, I worry it may be too late :(

    Tell Me What You Want

    PS -- ignore this unless you're a classics nerd: Step back. I studied ancient Greek & Latin culture/society/language/history in college ("Classical Studies"), and this issue we're dealing with is an ancient question. The ancient Greeks prided themselves on what today we call the "rule of law"...
