City of Buenos Aires, May 10, 2011
The Minister of Economy, Amado Boudou, was in the House of Representatives to give explanations on the resolution issued by the Ministry of Commerce on increases in the company Cablevision.
Before the committee for Communications and Information Technology, Boudou said that “the increase) is neither more nor less than a monopolistic act. “
“This is the same media group (referring to the Clarín Group) using the price increase in the press and radio to explain that there was no justification for a cost study, “ he added.
“Then they have the nerve to talk about price increases. Price increases make them like the Clarin group through these increases, “said the Minister.
“What the government is arguing is that users and consumers do not pay what they do not have to pay, “he said.
