Great news! Argentina has finally decided to do something about its rampant inflation. At the surely mild suggestion of their Interior Trade Secretary, Argentine supermarkets have kindly agreed to freeze prices for two months. If only they’d thought of this sooner, they would’ve prevented the double-digit annual inflation of the last few years.
Price caps in Zimbabwe and Venezuela have worked wonders over the last few years, so they’re bound to be just as effective in Argentina. And in our own experience, price caps on gas back in the 70s miraculously saved America’s economy from rising inflation and made gasoline so much easier to buy. I’m sure the Argentines will see similar success in stopping inflation and fixing their economy.
Sadly, I’m not in a mood to keep the snark up for more than two paragraphs.
