    Economic realities post-coronavirus

    What are people's viewpoint as far as the economic impact of the Coronavirus on Argentina? I think that it will be quite large and exasperate the current ongoing ecnomic crisis in Argentina. Here are some examples: Small business collapse - many businesses in argentina were already stressed...

    Visa/Residency advice - Student Visa, citizenship, forming a S.A.

    I agree that the advice of Bajo_cero2 / Rubilar is oftentimes not correct in reality. Rubilar gives advise according to his interpretation of the law, but unfortunately what matters is convincing the judge said interpretation is correct. If you cannot do that, then you will lose. This is why...

    Why are Argentinians so accepting of corruption ?

    Don't you mean ravaged by populist politicians that spent too much money? This seems like more blame shifting. Don't blame argentina that spent all the money recklessly. Don't blame argentina that begged the IMF for a loan so they can keep spending. At what point does Argentina have some...

    Violent protests in Chile: Will this spread to Argentina?

    What always fascinates me about these riots is they always seem to destroy the same capital goods that they themselves benefit from. Yes, burn and damage the subway that takes you to work! Burn the grocery store you shop at! When the dust settles it is only the rioters that are left poorer and...

    New CABA Temporary Rentals Law

    Great, a failing economy, poor rates, a 15% capital gains tax, and increasingly additional regulation. This is exactly what Buenos Aires needs to ensure that absolutely no one wants to purchase real estate. People thought the housing crash of 2001 was bad. Just wait until this evolves into a...

    For those who think a Schwab card is tops.......

    One huge advantage of the Schwab account is it is FDIC insured. So for people that don't want to lose their entire account balance when a startup goes under, then Schwab is probably the first choice.

    New Tourist Tax

    Perfect. I agree that the 12% of GDP that tourism contributes to Argentina's economy is not sufficient. Those blasted tourists that are a drain on Argentina's resources and contribute nothing to the local economy. I think Argentina would be much better off if it just banned tourism all together...

    The goal is not to target a certain value. It means that 1) government will quit subsidizing the peso by spending down reserves 2) the government will build reserves this means selling pesos to buy dollars The end result of these two actions has a weakening effect all things being equal. The...

    When will Argentina default ?

    The connectedness of a country to global trade is not measured by focusing on a few select inputs. Every country depends on some other region for some input within it's supply chain. The method to measure this is by looking at trade to GDP. Here is a simple source that will show you the...

    When will Argentina default ?

    Defaults are neutral events. They never cause an issue. Party A loans $100 to party B. Party B defaults. Party A lost money and party B gained money. It was a neutral event. No value was lost. The default itself can only cause issues if you believe party A can utilize the money better than party...

    There is no plan to avoid a default. The debt will be defaulted it is that simple. It is either that or face enormous political instability that will have even worse effects than the debt. Argentina has very little imports. Their primary exports are food, which other countries like China need...

    Western Union money transfer

    Argentina. The land of the arrogant. One thing that is always so predictable here is the lack of self-reflection and stepping backwards. As a betting I will always bet on the worser outcome when it comes to Argentina and I know I will be right most of the time.

    Violent protests in Chile: Will this spread to Argentina?

    After the world wars we entered a time of global prosperity as a world. Globalism spread, technology increased productivity, shipping lanes were protected by the sole surviving super power, nearly everyone's standard of living increased, and our population had not yet exploded. Since then we...

    North America vs South America

    Yes, there is no contradiction.South america is not advaned. Utilizing technology developed by others is not what I refer to as advanced, which is probably where our misunderstanding comes from. Advanced is referring to an economy built on engineering and innovation. The creators of said...

    North America vs South America

    I have already stated this multiple times, so I hope reiterating it this last time will be enough for you to finally understand it: IQ is but one factor there are many other factors.

    North America vs South America

    You seem to be inputting a lot of your own baggage into my statements. I did not even mention race in my post yet you seem to be on a racial tirade. I am really sick of racists like you where everything is viewed through the lens of skin color. It is disgusting and you should be ashamed...
