you for all your help. Perhaps the below will help you.
I have followed your site for some time and learned a lot. I also have
your book, a huge wealth of information. To anyone who reads this
ferfal's book makes a great gift for family or like minded friends.
Anyway the reason for this message for you is that you have mentioned
how Argentina got into huge debt and had a subsequent financial
collapse and how multinational agricultural and other corporations
bought such large amounts of land. These corporations make big profits
by plundering your natural resources and support your corrupt dictator
(I mean president, pardon the slip) all this while the rest of the
population almost starves to death. This scenario reminds me of a book
I read, it is called 'confessions of an economic hitman' by john
Perkins. If his book is indeed true it my help you see why your
country was destroyed. Keep up the good work.
I’m glad you enjoyed my book. Amazon is currently doing a 56% discount, selling "The Modern Survival Manual" for $11.01. No idea how long it will last but it’s a good deal.
Indeed, the corporations that profit from misery in different parts of the world are always the same, and their modus operandi is pretty similar too: Destruction of national industry, inflation and a good dose of national debt. Once a country is broken it is easy to then come and pick it apart, and force your will on the population through an obedient government.
We live in times when there’s record of food production, enough to keep every single person fed, but still millions go hungry. The amount of food that gets thrown away in developed nations alone would be enough to practically end world hunger.
We live in a time when, since 2009, 95% Of Income Gains went to the top 1% and when fast food workers ask for a wage that allows them to live with basic decency the ruling elite cries out in outrage. It was just a couple days ago that Rush Limbaugh called Pope Francis a Marxist because he said that “"Trickle-down economics" don’t work. Trickle-down economics do not work, they never did. You don’t get a fair society by taking away more money from the great majority that earns less while giving massive tax cuts to the richest people in the planet. Only a fool can think that somehow, because the super rich have more, more money will just fall out of their pockets and land in the hands of average Joe. You know what the elite does with the extra money they have? They make even more of it, and they don’t do that by creating millions of fair wage jobs. They do it by becoming so big that they dictate the laws by which you and I live and what eventually happens with our labor. That’s the real Marxism, that’s the real communism. Creating an illusion of freedom by which you pic employee of the month A or employee of the month B, both who happen to be big corporation lap dogs, and give people the illusion of liberty by allowing them to choose one.
Disguised as capitalism, which is supposed to be fair and liberating, the so called 1%, which is more like a 0.0001%, they get to play big shot Capitalist or full blown Communist depending on what they need. Rush Limbaugh says Pope Francis is a Marxist. Well I say that the real Marxists are the ones that force the entire world to bail out the richest companies in the world because they are “too big to fail”, throwing the worlds population into virtual slavery. There’s nothing “capitalist” about getting billion dollar bailouts when you fail. In a real capitalist system a business that fails goes bankrupt and closes their doors, that's it, they don’t get bailed out because they are too big, only to then claim record profits for themselves. In a real capitalist society, these companies that got bailed out by the 99.999% of the worlds population, would return the money to the people they loaned, no, stole from, to save themselves from going bankrupt instead of claiming record profit and bagging it for themselves a few days later.
Sorry for the rant but the nerve of some people, to defend this cancer in society. Very capitalist when it comes to bagging the profits, very communists when it comes to picking up the tab, getting bailed out forcing the worlds’ population to pay for what they’ll claim to be their own profit a few months later.
There were several factors involved in the final economic collapse of Argentina. Inflation, debt, unemployment and lack of real national productivity along with a corrupt government that played along and benefitted from unquestionably harmful economic measures caused the very much predicable collapse.
