  • President Fernandez denies it, but rumors has it that a new $5000 bank note is being prepared by the Banco Central de la República Argentina (BCRA).

    And true to President Fernandez's early declarations on his preference for people over the fauna and flora of Argentina, seeking for a more 'neutral' representation of the Argentinian people, the new bank note will feature not one but two people (and no gender-less individual because they were out of space).



    La nota del Banco Central también establecía las características del nuevo billete sanitarista, fundacional y peronista. Tendrá en el frente las imágenes de Ramón Carrillo, el primer ministro de Salud de Juan Perón, acompañado por Cecilia Grierson, la primera médica argentina. En el reverso se recorta la figura del Instituto Malbrán. Se hicieron varias muestras. LA NACION accedió a una de las primeras (no la definitiva).

    El Banco Central también especificó las fechas de entrega: deben llegar 20 millones de billetes en junio, 60 millones en julio, la misma cantidad en agosto y otros 60 millones en septiembre.

  • Mamma mia, it is unbearable to watch. It looks like one of those post-mortem pictures of late '800s.

    And with an ugly, squared, art-less building behind it. So Latin America. <X

  • That really is an ugly bill, serafina . Especially disappointing because Argentines tend to do things artistically, like the French and the Italians. This looks more like the work of Russian or similar draftsmen.

    Exactly! It it has a certain Communist Yugoslavia from the '80s touch...

  • if u cannot see the writing on the wall yet, u r seriously blind....

    Btw, the anti corruption offices dropped all charges against two of the queens cases.....

    As I said from day one: alby is as dirty rat as can be!!!

  • Good to see a nice wee Scottish lassie on the 5 mil note


    Dr Cecilia Grierson was the daughter of Scottish immigrants and the first female doctor on Argentina.

  • just reading the article on pagina12, "why the emission of more money reduces inflation"


    Great


    It's actually a written by the team behind the successful books "dry water" and upwards floating rivers".....

    Imagine I spent so many years studying and then working in finance, just to learn that it was all a lie!!!!!


    Not surprised about the stupidity of some people here when being presented with this kind of stuff!!!

  • ......let me add this on: of course if the economy had grown and a higher amount of wealth would be in the system, an emission of more money would be appropriate... but I strongly doubt that this is the case!!!

  • We keep putting ourselves in the shoes of Argentines whose income has been eroded away over their lifetime. Saving money makes no sense (inflation), especially saving in pesos (exchange rate). So it has been impossible to provide for emergencies (covid-created unemployment) or even future non-emergencies.
