We didn’t kick them out, they fled: on the “Argentinization” of YPF and the limits of the Kirchnerist oil policies
By Fernando Dachevsky and Betania Farfaro
Translation: Leonardo Kosloff
The government boasts about having stimulated the “Argentinization” of YPF. However, behind this show of patriotism there is hidden the fact that the oil industry in Argentina is less and less viable. The Spanish of Repsol sell their stocks and leak out their capital, while the government not only pampers to it, but allows it to increase its prices.
