Why Argentina is cheaper now?
Argentina peso experiences dramatical down for some time already, as well as Argentina’s economy due to so called “endless storms”. Peso declined 108.7% against the USD. Country’s statistic agency INDEC, says that 32% of population is living in poverty. President Macri has signed last year $56.3 billion deal with International Monetary Fund and as a part of this deal has cut government spending and raised utilities prices. Above that inflation rate is over 50%, which makes Argentina not the best place to live in, but more affordable for tourists.
Unique national parks, tango, very delicious food, - are among the top attractions there. It’s time to enjoy it!
Update: since the beginning 2020 Argentina was in default but in July has reached an agreement with creditors to restructure around $65 billion in sovereign debt, breaking a deadlock in talks that will help the country climb out of default and banish fears of a damaging and protracted legal standoff.
Peso has lost more than 57% in comparison with Euro and more than 63% with USD.
Inflation rate is 52.9% and EU inflation is 1.6%.
