The president of Argentina, Javier Mileideclared that he did not speak, exactly, about dollarization, and yes in currency competition, but admitted that to reach this moment it is necessary to carry out several reforms, including that of the financial system. In an interview with the program Oppenheimer Presents on CNN in Spanish, broadcast on Sunday, the 31st, the ultraliberal suggested that the plan, echoed in his campaign, should remain until 2025.

”We have always talked about currency competition. And in this competition, if you are led to impose a currency, the currency that will be imposed, based on the preferences of Argentines, is very likely to be the dollar. Therefore, it became accustomed to dollarization. But, in reality, we always talk about competition for money”, said Milei.

“What we are working on is reforming the financial system, but it is an achievable goal before next year’s elections,” he said, suggesting, however, that he does not believe it will be possible to reach the dollarization plan before next year’s legislative elections. next.

Milei said that one of his government’s mistakes was having spoken transparently and honestly with the governors about the “Basic Law”, which added chapter 4 on the tax law to help them, basically, solve a problem. “The governors, instead of taking it as a gesture of goodwill, which is what it was, saw it as a sign of weakness and strove to work on chapter 4 to destroy public finances.”
