With the expectation of how the market will take the new restrictions on access to the exchange market, the president of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce, gave details of the measures and pointed against the blue dollar, which he defined as "criminal."
"It is very difficult to know what is going to happen. It is a criminal market. When raids have been made in caves and databases have been crossed,
one finds drug dealers, arms dealers, anything
. It is a market that supplies crime, for what is impossible to know what is the type of change that the crime is willing to pay, "he assured.
, the official said that "there is a romantic vision of that market because people are used to it, they go to a little tree on Florida Street, all very nice", but warned that "it is the same situation as going to buy or sell things to a junkyard. "
"We are talking about criminal matters. You have to be very careful. Going to buy dollars in the blue market is something illegal. People who do that,
who assume the circumstances
, because they are buying dollars from someone who committed a crime," he sentenced .
On the other hand, the economist clarified that savers will be able to continue withdrawing their deposits from the banking system without any type of restriction.
“We have the perception many times that everyone buys dollars when in reality they do not reach 6 million.
Those who buy regularly are 4 million and those who buy insistently are 2 million, "he said.
