    Why is everybody complaining?

    Well compared to the average Argentine they're certainly well off. I guess they just hate the country but like the prices, though there's much cheaper places to live still..

    Why is everybody complaining?

    Yeah it's really embarrassing. People knowingly move to a third world country, then do nothing but complain about how much they hate it. They hate the culture, they hate the people, they hate just everything. What did you expect? Did you expect everything here to cater to rich expats? Does it...

    Uber's dark side...

    It's a guy in a car driving you from A to B. For me 5 stars is just someone who does that with no problems, for other people 5 stars requires someone who treats them like some sort of god by giving them free water bottles and snacks and driving the latest model car, and those people can easily...

    Uber's dark side...

    AEP now has a system where you print a ticket with an agreed upon fare and then go line up for a taxi so it's much better. It is more expensive than a normal trip, but the drivers have to line up for a while to wait for a fare anyway so whatever, it's fair enough. The downside to the Uber...

    Uber's dark side...

    Yea last week a friend visited me and we had a similar experience, taxi driver went in circles and he was texting me about it. Ran it up to 350. When they stopped I just told the driver I know it's a 200 peso trip, and when I went to take a photo of his taxi license he just agreed to 200 lol.

    Uber's dark side...

    Everyone has the chance of being a perv. Uber's statistics don't seem any better or worse than what you'd expect. At least the taxis here are generally reliable, I use both Uber and Taxis regularly. Taxis aren't especially pleasant but they're much cheaper and less bullshit involved than in...

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    1st: noting that the historical thesis that Argentina was some sort of exceptionally rich and prosperous country in the 1930s is wrong is different from saying that Argentina did well in 2003-2015 2nd: I'm not saying it, the objective measures are saying it.

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    Since 1983, Argentina has had 2 'populist' presidents, Nestor and CFK. Actually, since the coup against Peron in 1955, there's only been 4 total: Peron and Isabel from 1973 to 1976 and then Nestor and CFK from 2003 to 2015. People who don't know much about the history or politics of this country...

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    You're citing a very old thesis called 'Argentine exceptionalism' that was popularised in the 70s during the dictatorship years. It's been largely debunked today - The thesis did not consider wealth distribution or the wage worker status of the population. Argentina was one of the most unequal...

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    A popular myth, but never true. Argentina declined in GDP per capita to lower levels than Australia in the 1930s and never recovered, and besides, talking about raw economic measures says nothing about allocation. In Australia, migrants were given many ways to acquire abundant land, whereas in...

    Argentina's president-elect rejects remaining IMF money

    'Some liberal' who paid off the debt last time? It was Nestor.

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    Argentina is obviously not a stable developed nation like Australia. Its democracy is literally only 40 years old and it has been ravaged by predatory IMF loans no less than 3 times in that period... And Chile is a nation that still uses the constitution of the dictator Pinochet. It currently...
