Of that, 10 percentage points would correspond to recovering Central Bank interest-bearing liabilities (LELIQ and repo operations). On the contrary, the Central Bank uses these interest-bearing liabilities to regulate the monetary volume and short-term reference rates. Since the day after the runoff, Milei has been making comments about solving the problem of the central bank’s interest-bearing liabilities as soon as possible to enable the elimination of currency controls. However, of all the Argentine economy’s problems, interest-bearing liabilities are by no means the most important. If progress is made in that direction, the stock of interest-bearing liabilities will be reduced, thus making exchange rate unification possible.

Economist Carlos Rodríguez said Friday that he was “ending all formal ties regarding economic advisory” with La Libertad Avanza (LLA). Rodríguez was part of a an LLA team that met with the IMF following the libertarian economist’s victory in the August primaries. Today is the right time, given that Javier [Milei] has designated the Economy Minister and changed the president of the Central Bank. He’s not the right person; being the economy minister has a different set of job requirements,” Rodríguez said. Carlos Rodríguez graduated as an economist from the University of Buenos Aires and has a PhD from Chicago University.

The libertarian bested Peronist candidate and current Economy Minister Sergio Massa, winning 56% of the vote to Massa’s 44%. During the first presidential debate, Milei noted that he had since apologized to the spiritual leader of more than two-thirds of Argentines. On the home front, Milei unofficially confirmed a number of ministers and that his government will have just eight ministries, half of the current number. The latter two “Frankenstein’s ministries,” as we’ll call them, are both amalgamations of numerous current cabinet-level agencies.And what of Sergio Massa? Having appointed a four-person transition group to coordinate with Milei’s economy team, Massa later said that he would remain in office until Alberto Fernández’s term ends on December 10.

The government has increased the taxes that apply to the dólar tarjeta (card dollar) exchange rate, bringing it to AR$950 to the dollar. The card dollar is the exchange rate applied to purchases made with Argentine credit or debit cards abroad. This means the card dollar will now incur a 155% tax on the value of the official dollar, which closed at AR$375 on Wednesday. Thus, the card dollar is now valued at around AR$950 this Thursday, amid the presidential transition process. That means the card dollar rate will be adjusted in line with that policy.

PharmAbcine Publishes Study in Science Advances Demonstrating the Potential of PMC-403 in Preclinical Models of Idiopathic Systemic Capillary Leak SyndromeAdvertisementStudy reveals a promising avenue for addressing Idiopathic Systemic Capillary Leak Syndrome (ISCLS, a.k.a. The results underscore the novel mechanism of action, demonstrating the ability of PMC-403 to reduce vascular leakage associated with ISCLS in the preclinical models. The paper, titled “A ligand-independent Tie2-activating antibody reduces vascular leakage in models of Clarkson Disease” highlights the significance of Tie2 activation and its potential implications for the treatment of ISCLS. In February 2023, the US FDA granted Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) for PMC-403 for the treatment of Systemic Capillary Leak Syndrome. Dr. Jin-San Yoo, President & CEO of PharmAbcine, commented “This study provides vital insights into the efficacy and potential expandability of Tie2-activating antibody for vascular diseases.

They’ve set the bar very high and it’s hard to carry on.”“This isn’t a goodbye, but I need to think things through,” added Scaloni. The Argentina coach, however, confirmed that “everything is good” with the AFA president.

However, the people have expressed their will at the ballot box, and the democratic process must be respected. Secondly, Milei’s victory is a warning to Argentina’s entire political system, because it shows that an outsider with extreme proposals was better able to channel the popular anger and frustration than career politicians. As in 2001, the entire political system has failed the Argentine people. Winning the run-off is not a carte blanche to run roughshod over Argentina’s democratic consensus. As we said in our collective editorial, a Milei government must provide answers to the population’s demands without breaking the democratic consensus that we have spent 40 years building.

Here are three points you should know about why adopting light mobility can change the panorama for LAC. Such “light mobility” includes micro-cars, mopeds, electric bicycles, and scooters, among many others, that can improve city mobility. The main reason is that cities have been designed for cars, prioritizing large motor vehicles, as our latest report, “Towards the light: Effective light mobility policies in cities,” points out. The rest of days, these large vehicles do not represent the same utility for the person, who could equally use light vehicles in their daily lives to get around. The third point is this: to really boost light mobility, cities need to integrate light mobility options with pedestrian infrastructure and public transport systems.

After far-right economist Javier Milei’s win in Sunday’s run-off election, Argentina’s main business associations and leaders generally reacted with support for the president-elect. Common themes across their reactions were the desire to work closely with the new administration to fix the country’s economic situation and the importance of the work ahead. One of the first to congratulate Milei was the group of leading business associations known as the “G6” — the Argentine Chamber of Construction (Camarco), the Argentine Rural Society (SRA), the Argentine Chamber of Commerce and Services (CAC), the Association of Argentine Banks (ABA), the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (BCBA) and the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA). “[We] celebrate the carrying out of a new democratic election in peace and congratulate its protagonists,” said G6 members in a signed statement. Argentine sovereign bonds are also up at around 6 percent.
