At the beginning of last week, the National government released the data of the inflation of May. From the Pink House They clenched their fists as the Consumer Price Index (CPI) fell to 5.1% after two consecutive months with sharp increases. However, the interannual grew 60.7%, the highest mark in 30 years. In this framework, the economist and national deputy Martin Tetaz launched a soccer chicana against the management of Alberto Fernandez.
When questioning the economic policy of the national Executive, Tetaz compared the attitude of the Government with “a team that goes to B while the President does the ironing”. “The middle class is flirting with poverty, because half of wage earners earn less than $100,000,” said the legislator of Together for Change, in dialogue with Nueva Normalidad (Radio Rivadavia).
Along these lines, Tetaz said he does not believe that the economy “is in order, unless there is a change in the government and a new economic program.” Likewise, he pointed against the Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán: “He said that last year’s 4% inflation was exceptional and now he celebrates 5.1% (in May)”. “Inflation confirms that prices go to 80% annualized”, analyzed the national deputy.
Next, the economist assured that in Argentina the rise in prices is “permanent”. Finally, he predicted that the inflationary situation in the country is difficult to put in order, since “the Government is issuing banknotes and the level of confidence is very low.” Tetaz had already spoken about the CPI data for the fifth month of the year, warning that Argentina “is flirting with inflation.”
