The fiscal deficit equals 42% of people´s money

Fiscal adjustment is not a whim of public officials but an imposition of reality. The systematic lack of austerity in the public sector generates an imbalance that no one is willing to finance. With more agility and strategic sense in the ordering of the public sector, equilibrium can be reached with reduced social costs.

Poor households suffer more than twice labour inactivity

Besides the economic crisis, poverty roots are structural. One is the high proportion of poor household members that do not work.

Quality of institutions and business ethics at african level

97% of the school budget is spent in wages

Las políticas laborales y su importancia en los vaivenes económicos

El modelo de negociación colectiva argentino es extremadamente vetusto (data de la década del 50 o sea de hace 70 años), muy centralizador y no respeta la representatividad ni de los trabajadores ni de los empleadores. Específicamente, tiene dos instituciones que llevan a este resultado. Una es la ultra actividad por ley, que establece que los convenios colectivos se mantienen vigentes aun cuando venzan. La otra es la extensión automática, que dice que los convenios sectoriales se aplican de manera automática y obligatoria a todos los empleadores de ese sector aunque dichos empleadores no estén afiliados a la asociación empresaria que firma el convenio sectorial.
