On the other hand, the arrival of a large amount of pesos, a product of the government’s new measures for retirees, monotributistas and other sectors to improve consumption.
“The blue dollar had exceeded $800 after the PASO and calmed down. Now, We have at least 10% per month, which is a natural increase as a result of inflation.
