    Ave Cristina Long Live the Queen

    Governments from the left and the right can be disasters . Just because a government is of the left does not mean it it good . Cuba and Venezuela have been a terrible failure for its people and I do not buy the argument that foreign governments are to blame as each government can set...

    Shoplifting or kleptomania is a rush of adrenalin for some people be them rich or poor. Surveys show that upper middle class people are just as likely to pilfer as the poor .

    Theft from hotel rooms .

    Reading the thread on the Mexican ambassador on stealing a book from El Atheneo brought me to this topic as Argentinians have the dubious honour of being number one internationally from stealing from hotel rooms as guests. This to me is a very embarrassing statistic and I like to ask the...

    To complain about life in Argentina or USA or whatever country one lives in is a democratic right and allows one to vent their frustations about daily life .Sure our countries have terrible injustices as well but now we are living in Argentina and for this reason we have the right to complain...

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    At that time small businesses were a viable option and costs to run them were much lower. Inflation was 25% per year but wages always kept up with that keeping families above water . There was 10 times as much consumption than today just look at real estate transactions they are down close...

    How long before Cristina kicks Alberto aside?

    The dark horse is Axel Kiciloff and I see many signs that they are grooming here for power in the future . For those who fear the left he is much more to the extreme than Alberto Fernandez.

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    I am amazed how people forget so easily how people lived under Christina . Wages in real dollar terms were more than double and prices were less than double . It is not surprising that she got reelected when you consider how middle class families live today .

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    I lived through this period and it was really an incredible boom from 2004 to 2011. I believe the economy grew close to 10 percent per year and in Palermo Soho the mood was one of optimism and hope. It was a rebirth of many abandoned neighbourhoods and many people got rich quickly . I hope it...

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    Did you not say in your previous posts that Argentina has not done well since before the 1930s ? Now you are saying under Peronist goverments that Argentines lived very well and standards of living went up dramatically .

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    That is one of my points about accepting of corruption . Macri borrowed over 100 billion dollars and this money is now all spent . Where is the accountability for this ? This and his increase of services in some cases 1000 percent destroyed the middle class and most small businesses .There was...

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    I am Australian born and believe I know the history very well. Australia had periods of great wealth up to the 1930s but the great depression destroyed the financial markets for a very long time . Sydney Australia from the 1930s to the 1950s was a backwater compared to Buenos Aires Argentina...
