Argentina has one of lowest unemployment rates of his history, the lowest external debt of its history, the highest welfare state of America, the higher rate of pensioned people on retirement age of all America, the highest pension in dollars of Latin America, the third best distribution of wealth after Canada and Uruguay, the highest consumption of public services of all Latin America in this moment.

Bad thing's inflation, but it was inflation or unemployment.
Another problem is too many Argentineans travelling abroad, spending money. Argentineans spend abroad much more money than foreigners in Argentina.
One of biggest problems is our main partner, Brazil is on recession and is our main buyer of cars and is buying nothing, and export of cars is second biggest entry of dollars.

If the biggest problem is middle class can't buy I phones cause Apple didnt want to open its technology under local laws, or buy dollars at legal rate is simple because they have money to save...

If CNN, Fox News, and The Economist say we're in Dante's hell it can only be good. When they said we were optimum and things could only get better we finished with the highest debt in history and defaulted, without trains, without plane factory, 25% unemployment, 150usd pensions instead of 400usd as now.

A truck driver does 3000usd a month. BA policeman does more than 1500usd a month. My maid does 850usd a month. In parity purchase power is even more.
Pension are the highest in Latin America and more than 96% of women over 60 yo and men over 65 whether they contributed or not, whether they are argentinean of foreigners have a pension. In Colombia or Mexico, favourites of neo liberal media is less than 25%.

There are two kind of countries. The ones people run from, and the ones people run to. Today Argentina received immigration from Fox News and The Economist favourites. That means something. Argentineans in US are less than 250.000, Mexicans there are 35.000.000 in US.... In average Argenrtinean families in US have 20% more income than average American families. The only emigration from Argentina is brains, cause they are payed even better than locals in US, Australia, etc.

Don't eat all broken glass you listen on CNN and The Economist.
Think a second: if economy were as neoliberasl media say, Cristina would have had 54% votes as she had? Scioli would be best rated politician? There are 24 districts in Argentina, neo liberals won only one... Macri, the wright wing opponent had to change his rethoric from all bad to moderate cause even more radicalised opponents didn't believe things are so bad.

It took me 1 month to find a f... plumber... 3 month to find someone to fix my heating system cause specialists "don't have time"... Crisis are not like this dear...

I'm sure many Argentinians will say its the worst country in the world, a dictatorship and other shit, the lack intellectuals honesty.

There are a lot of challenges now cause the world has changed dramatically in last year, but things are not at all like you see on CNN.

Sorry but Argentinian situation is horrible, and that's from spending many months there and actually talking with people and seeing things with my own eyes. What i said on my previous post wasn't based on any website but my personal experience. Brazil where i currently reside is a shithole as well.

Chile is the most widespread developed right now. Almost every country has a lot of wealthy and rich people in Latin America, but there are many diferences, the majority lives in the middle class, but you can also find a big and amazing CBD with plenty of residential wealthy suburbs, right next to a very poor slum.
