There it is again - service sucks here. Nothing wrong with providing services to grow your economy. Some of the richest countries are service oriented.Oh, Boy!!
Back in the 90´s Menem sold the Jewels of the Crown (the national utilities companies and its matching monopolies) for a song to a bunch of european companies willing to provide enough incentives under the table. The american companies would not play ball, so none stayed long.
The small change was distributed and people fooled themselves into thinging we were actually making progress.
Then everybody turned to providing "services" instead of producing anything.
The european companies recovered the money they invested in no time and trained the natives to run the utilities companies and export the hard currency for a long time. Real investment never hapened. Things improved enough but they might have done so even without foreign direction. Too expensive to call it aid or assistance. It was, in a large scale, like calling the repaiman to fix the fridge and by the end of the visit, not only he got payed but left being the owner of the fridge.
Another clear example is the telecoms. They put boxes (cell phones) on the street a lot more than investing in developping the infrastructure.
Fibertel basic service is a compressed signal way below the image quality you get by watching the free TV signal. WTF?
Service sucks. Things change only to remain the same. It´s a cultural thing.
We strongly practice the chicken coop way of life. We get pooped from above and we take a dump on the ones below us. The monkey tree has nothing on us.
There are many positive things about Argentina... but doing business is not one of them. It's certainly not a "cake walk." You have all of the problems that any business faces, but with a few twists. Here's just a sample of what the PYMEs take on:So even less real competition. Should be a cake walk for someone with a decent success track record if they want to do it.
This is a clear example of the reasoning in arshentina, i'm sure for all the developed countries was a cake walk becoming developed.Honestly, if I saw my currency decline day after day and worked for less and less every hour, I wouldn't give a crap about your sewing machine either. Everything people try here fails or the government screws up. I would literally stop giving a crap, too.
My point was, in hard times, it is better to modify your way of doing business than to go out of business altogether.Um, shops that do not advertise nor do house calls not doing house calls is not within the realm of customer service. That's you demanding services they don't even offer.
