According to Clarin, the government is printing money like there's no tomorrow, having thrown 1.2 billion pesos into the market since January. 700 million is in $100 notes and they are importing 250 million $500 notes because the printing facilities here can't keep up.
No mention is made of the $1000 or $5000 note because apparently that would signal that we have an inflation problem, something successive governments love to be in denial over.
One wonders if this is going to lead to hyperinflation, because according to conventional economic thinking, printing money only increases inflation.
The other day I had to deliver a quantity of money (around US$500) in $100 notes and I've paid for stuff in similar amounts where higher bills weren't available.
That old joke about for things with carrier bags stuffed with useless notes is no longer a joke, so if there's something you need, get it now. Otherwise you'll need a wheelbarrow.
