Argentina is in the middle of an economic crisis, and it is the US dollar that is in the spotlight once again. Argentines are looking at the dollar to save themselves instead of the country in general.

Seems like Argentina was only so rich in the early 20th century because of agriculture and resources, but technology has only gotten way more complex and valuable since then.

USD? Well I guess relative to other fiat currency it's doing all right, but it devalued by 5% just last year. And now the Fed has restarted QE, so expect a loss of more than 5% of value this next year. Better to hold your wealth in gold and Bitcoin, Argentinians.

Just get rid of the socialism that came in with the italian migrants and argentina would be fine. It did well in the 19th and early part of the 20th century because it was a small government constitutional government formed from the ideas of the enlightenment era (highest per capita gdp in 1901 and first country to abolish slavery).

Why Should Others Boy- Cott the Dollar, When Argentina has made their own problems by overspending and going beyond their means. It's not the dollars fault it's the argentinians fault for not disciplining themselves not to overspend. When Argentina learns not to overspend then they will value the dollar but until then Argentina will be going to the same situation over and over no matter what currency it may have.

@Thadius Sean , Argentina can't spend all their money and expect not to be broke. People hate the Rich Man but he brings jobs. Argentina can't expect Countries to Bail them out and not pay them back. In America we almost went bankrupt and all of us American Citizens had to Bail the Banks out. We couldn't ask for any other Countries to Bail Us Out In America. We lost our 401 Retirement Plan to Bail Out Our Country America . Payed Higher Taxes, and Our Children and Grandchildren even have to pay for a System to Bail Out Our Country America . Until We Got A Great Business Man For Our President Donald Trump and Brought Back Our Own Companies Back In America Now We are doing much better. we had to give incentives to our own companies to come back to America and bring jobs to our American citizens. This is why China is fighting us is because we brought back our own companies to America. Our Own Companies are no longer getting tax write-offs for taking our business to other countries. We stay away from China because they don't believe in fair trade. China caused America to lose employment and We suffered over it. We are no longer buying to many exports except with countries that believe in fair trade like South Korea that we buy Kia cars from. Most of our cars now are being manufactured and built in America that's why our country is doing great now. We Americans had to come together and work together to save our own country America from going bankrupt. We had to stopped big spending and most of us live moderately. People can't expect to have Countries bail out Argentina , Then They keep sending like it's no tomorrow. This is why Argentina is in trouble now. Anytime you have a socialist government, that government takes control over everything including your freedoms.

The basic problem is that Argentina is consuming much more than it is producing, thus necessitating borrowings which it cannot pay back. The solution is for the country to live within its means, whether that be to increase its means to match its living or reduce its consumption to match what its productive capacity affords remains the question. But until this is achieved, Argentina will continue this cycle of borrowing, spending and defaulting, lurching from one crisis to the next.

@Balla JallowJust wait there.. that is what most people think. The local Peso may have devaluated very fast but most of the prices are anchored to the US Dollar so they go up everyday specially high value items like cars and houses, that is the reason they watch the price of the dollar very close... of course the only thing doesn't go up fast are salaries and wages.
