Argentine Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner held a master class this Thursday at the Argentine Theater in the capital, where she criticized dollarization proposals and urged not to repeat convertibility, Telesur reported.
On the occasion of the opening of the Néstor Kirchner School of Justice in La Plata, the Vice President delivered a masterful speech this afternoon commemorating the 20th anniversary of the election in which Néstor Kirchner became President this Thursday.
In his first public speech since the announcement of President Alberto Fernandez not to run for a new term, Fernandez de Kirchner urged not to repeat the “failures of the past”. He rejected the idea of ”dollarization” of the economy, which he associated with “convertibility” and the explosion of 2001. He also called for “building state programs” so that “nothing again depends on one person.”

The country’s former president (2007-2015) warned in an act in La Plata of the dangers of a “circular Argentina” in which “the past reappears in the present” with “numbers and ideas that seem to come from the past to the present to determine the future.”
He mentioned several times the ultra-liberal candidate Javier Milei, whom he identified as a “disciple” of the last minister of the Alliance’s economy and the ideologist of parity between the peso and the dollar in the 90s, Domingo Cavallo.
He recalled that convertibility began with the Bonex plan and ended with corralito to finally “explode in the face of 40 million Argentines”, bringing poverty and social explosion to the country, followed by “repression, death in the streets and pain”.
Regarding the agreement with the IMF, he noted that “these points need to be reviewed”, and the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, is involved in this task.
