Argentina freezes prices to break
inflation spiral

Associated Press, by Almudena Calatrava

Original Article

Posted By:schnapps, 2/4/2013 3:45:05 PM

Buenos Aires, Argentina — Argentina announced a two-month price freeze on supermarket products Monday in an effort to break spiraling inflation. The price freeze applies to every product in all of the nation´s largest supermarkets — a group including Walmart, Carrefour, Coto, Jumbo, Disco and other large chains. The companies´ trade group, representing 70 percent of the Argentine market, reached the accord with Commerce Secretary Guillermo Moreno, the government´s news agency Telam reported.

Comments:
This is the next step after a spendthrift government doesn´t change course. After stiffing bondholders and raiding pension plans, Argies are now going to see empty supermarkets.

In a couple of years time the liberal/left will be demanding we send food to Argentina because their citizens are going hungry.

The IMF also censured Argentina for putting out inaccurate economic data.
Has the IMF has noticed that the US has been running (down) without a budget for four years and Barry Peron Øbama has just missed the deadline for submitting the next one?

I remember when this worked so well under Nixon. Except instead of decreasing gas lines, it made them worse. Man, it won´t be long before we have a huge Argentina version of the Animal House food fight.

"Price freezes" To be followed promptly by food shortages, lines to buy basic food supplies, hoarding, rising unemployment, and riots. The stupidity of liberals on full display. Again.

#4 beat me to it. Price freezes don´t address the problem (central bank monetary policy), they only make it impossible to do business, and shortages result. It wouldn´t surprise me if this budding Eva Peron is clueless to the history of price controls. A remarkable picture of this occurred in Germany just after WW2 when the then-chancellor lifted price controls (which were a component of US occupation policy, BTW). OVERNIGHT shelves were restocked.

All you who say that gov´t price controls lead to rationing and shortages, just because they always have in the past, are not thinking positively. You should know that we are much smarter now and know the correct way to do it. Besides, would you just do nothing and let the situation get out of control?

MANAGUA - Nicaragua´s national assembly on Tuesday voted to scrap presidential term limits, which could allow socialist President Daniel Ortega to remain in power indefinitely and has stoked concerns about democracy in the Central American country.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
