Dollar Up

#34
the dollar is way undervalued. It's more expensive now than it was under Kirchner in 2015. With the blue rate you could still live OK at that time. Right now a steak dinner runs you like $30 at a mid-range parrilla and a breakfast of eggs, bacon, pancakes, coffee and water is like $25 (wtf??). Prices are just ridiculous. Based on previous prices in Argentina the dollar should be at least at like 50-60 pesos right now.

Anyone know exactly how they're artificially keeping the dollar so low?

Dinner also unacceptable, I mean I'm paying $30-$40 for the same dinner (less actually) that I was paying $10-$12 for in 2010

I don't know about 50 0r 60 , but based on the traditional exchange in argentina , the dollar should be closer to the 30 peso mark(3 to 1 ) or 3 million to 1 , or 300k to 1 depending on what year you base your exchange and what was the money denomination at that time.
One of the tings that stayed pretty much constant except for short bursts of hiper inflation is the liter of gasoline, 1 liter of gas , 1 dollar, as per today's fuel prices the dollar is a little behind, but i would keep my eye on that, it is my experience they will level off at some point in the near future, perhaps not all at once , but over the years that constant hardly ever changed, we might see a dollar reaching the 25 peso mark before the fuel prices go up again, narrowing the gap between the dollar and the liter of gasoline.....
That's my 2 millions cents....:confused:

Very easy. Central Bank employs the technique called 'dirty flotation'.
