Sim manito eu so boludo kkk This will be a long comment but here it goes (sorry i cant make it shorter than this):
Macri ran the campaign with stupid ads and lies to appeal to the center left voters (The Peronists , they think they're not leftist though) he never really gave any solid economic points during campaign and his family became rich in the private sector due to fascist protectionism from the PJ and huge government subsidies.
Once he got to power he did 1 good thing wrong and 1 great thing right.
1) He lifted the CEPO , government controlled currency value , that created a black market of other currencies in Argentina , for example , the official dollar was 8.15 Pesos in 2014 , but it was illegal to buy official dollars in a bank unless you checked every single requirement by the government , so most people bought the Blue Dollar on the black market which was about x2 (200%) that (16~ pesos) , he lifted that so that there is just 1 dollar , there was like 4 kinds of dollar with the CEPO , he did it wrong but it was still a good move.
2) He lifted taxes on vacation goods , if i went to Brasil for vacations , bought a shirt for 100 reais and brought it home in my suitcase , government aduana would force me to pay about 40% of its value added to that , if it was something like cellphone or a gpu , it would be from 80 to 200% , Macri lifted that too , so i can go wherever i want , buy what i want and comeback home and its all good , that was greatly done.
After those 2 meassures that he did within the first 60 days of his office , he started to do 100% leftist and center left policies , he kept the same money printing pace as the Kirchners , which is why Inflation never went below 30% under his term , he INCREASED the welfare checks , i think like 4 million people were in welfare when CFK left , and around 6 million people are in welfare now , he greenlighted a huge new tax on the Renta Financiera , its a new tax that affects the economy a lot , created by the Peronists in congress , accepted by him , about 20 different small new taxes were created from 2016 to now , he re-implemented retentions on the agro and mining sectors.
AND NOW They started to put price controls on a lot of products , Macri started to govern with center-left politics after the first 2 months and moved much further on the left , is just that our alt-left is soooo deep in the left that they see him as a right wing (The Kirchnerists) , you can look all of this up , they're proud about all of this you will find all the Boletines about it.
He's very much on the left and whoever tells you he's not has no clue what they're talking about , and sadly , that includes about 45% of the entire Argentinian population.
