Argentina's malaise continues to build as the impossibility of Argentine escaping its sad self progresses:
- The local legislature has declared a food emergency and in doing so has committed to increasing spending on "comedores sociales" (archived).
- Argentine retail "electrodomesticos" chain Musimundo has closed 30 locations this year and is continuing to close stores (archived). A reduced availability of electrodomesticos does carry the small positive benefit of reducing the availability of fire hazards advertised as consumer goods in the country.
- The surviving value of the Peso Argentino is increasingly uncertain with several different rates increasingly diverging from the artificial official (archived).
- The Argentine labor movement is continuing to wage its forever war against providers of labor opportunities as normal (archived).
