As if she were not part of the Government, Cristina Kirchner criticized "100% inflation"


The vice president spoke about economics and politics, receiving an honoris causa in Río Negro. She called for raising the level of debate in the election year.


expressed Cristina Fernández de Kirchner when wondering how the economy is after 40 years of democracy.

A couple of times she criticized that inflation "is 100%", as if it were not part of the Government, and compared it with that of her previous administration and the one that followed her.

She did the same, supported by some graphs, with the current level of real wages and employment

(“they are on the floor,”

she said) after the management that she heads together with Alberto Fernández.

It was during a magisterial conference of just over an hour that he delivered on the campus of the National University of Río Negro upon receiving an honoris causa.

After remarking that he had supported the restructuring of the debt faced by Martín Guzmán, he marked his differences on the agreement with the International Monetary Fund that he called to review.

"Support is part of the institutional responsibility, but it is also warning that there are agreements that may be inflationary," said Cristina, supported by a graph that showed the growing curve of maturities agreed with the IMF for the coming years.

"The conditions under which the agreement was signed will have to be reviewed,"

she warned, in the week in which a forum, in which former Commerce Secretary Roberto Feletti participated, raised the same objective.

"I don't have a dogmatic or ideological issue with the Fund and sometimes they put me in the place of being stubborn," said Cristina, who warned that with the combination of inflation and stagnation "we are in the oven."

By focusing her analysis in the context of a bi-monetary economy (“I don't know how we live, it's a miracle”) she took aim against dollarization.

"The first to make the sacrifice will be the middle class, which is the one that uses them the most and their impoverishment will have no limits," he challenged.

He also charged against convertibility and located the beginning of the dollar as a pattern of conduct for Argentines, in the coup of March 24, 1976, which will be remembered in two weeks.

“You have to discuss these things and not repeat them monotonously.

No more colored mirrors.

So there is no solution?


she wondered herself and responded with more comparison charts in which she stood out well.

For example, she sought to separate the evolution of salaries from inflation and also from the fiscal deficit, when comparing the Argentine deficit with those of the Nordic economies and Malaysia.

“Does Malaysia ring a bell?

Yes, it is the one with a deficit of 5.3 points and it is going to give us financing to install a liquefaction plant in Bahía Blanca to be able to export liquefied natural gas.

How the media lie!”

he reiterated in a classic of his speeches, the comments on the analysis of the press.

"These are numbers, I do not come with an ideology

," he defended himself after remarking the need for the country to move towards greater technological investment to export.

In an electoral context, he issued a series of warnings about the future.

“Our main challenge is to review the agreement with the IMF so that it allows us to grow.

A change in attitude is essential.

If we do not agree, neither Vaca Muerta nor lithium will be enough, ”he stated.

Thus, he made a call to raise the level of debate, “flat and mediocre.

We cannot continue like this,” she warned.

Without concrete clues as to whether it is going through her head to return to the Casa Rosada, as insistently requested by the militancy that took over the act, the vice president used her experience in the Executive and Legislative branches to seek to give a lecture on "how are we 40 years of democracy” as he stated at the outset.

"It seems that not even the three powers work" he shot in the first of several references to the defections he sees in each of them.

He again linked the judiciary with “the mafias that wallow in power and at some point collapse,” he warned, after mentioning the ousting of Senator Martín Doñate from Rio Negro from the Judicial Council.

Within hours of the Federal Court 2 disseminating the arguments of her sentence to 6 years in prison for corruption in the National Highway case, the vice president spoke of "no evidence and a single objective, the proscription."

After warning about the "rupture of the democratic pact" he expressed "a lot of fear" for the fragmentation and called to look "a little" at Latin America.

From the title, the magisterial conference raised the dilemma hegemony or consensus and Cristina raised that if there is neither one nor the other "may your sister help you".
