Harsh criticism of a Brazilian newspaper: ‘Argentina in the kingdom of fantasy’
January 18, 2013
On January 17, the newspaper O Globo in Rio de Janeiro issued a strong critical content on Argentina.
‘Kirchner’s government has created a parallel reality to show that things are going well, even when the truth shows otherwise. The best example is the inflation rate, which has been consistently below the high real prices since 2007, when then-President Nestor Kirchner ordered Indec intervention.
INDEC, the latest consumer price index in 2012: 10.8. Less than half of inflation calculated by private consultants 25.6, which puts Argentina ahead even of Venezuela (22).
We have, then, the official rate and the real, this called “IPC Congress” because private consultants began to spread through the opposition members, the Casa Rosada banned calculate inflation, something worthy of a banana republic.
The government says that the country has been able to finance the public sector. Indeed, as has become a pariah in the international financial system after the 2001 moratorium, is required to send furiously. Last year, the problem has grown inflation pressure.
To keep the fantasy, the kirchnerism, increasingly similar to Chavez, sponsors a wide communication network whose programming and news will go in the direction desired by the Casa Rosada (besides the great state network). This is achieved, among other things, through the manipulation of advertising funds.
