Con estas medidas es difícil estabilizar la brecha. A mediano plazo, las restricciones le sacan oferta al mercado paralelo y la demanda seguirá siendo alta. Ya vimos en cepos anteriores que las reservas terminan cayendo y la brecha sube @lore_giorgio

El nuevo súper cepo es una ¿solución? de muy corto plazo. Con este nivel de restricciones va a costar que la economía arranque cuando pase la crisis.
En lo inmediato: más brecha y las reservas siguieron cayendo. @mjaimovich https://www.iprofesional.com/finanzas/323682-estos-seran-los-efectos-del-super-cepo-al-dolar-segun-expertos

"El oficial lo pueden sostener muy de corto, pero más restricciones es más brecha y en el pasado siempre implicó presión, pérdida de reservas hasta que se termina devaluando." @mariediazromero

The government aims to reduce the primary deficit from about 7 to 4.5 per cent in 2021. Monetization of deficit will be relevant next year. If one of the problems in Argentina is currency stability, you’re not giving off the right signals. @Coloboren https://www.ft.com/content/16cd9fd0-d15c-41fb-9a6b-e0cb5eeecceb?accessToken=zwAAAXSTLtygkc8WzZ_Q0VxB-9Oaa-DLXu7M6w.MEUCIQCWHnZV3gyMP1wSNhOfRlpH7lAcyUZTruIl1eGTEskFbQIgBscMw0080B5AcqdV05w8xuAyUOVunmzjgoCHPShLeCg&sharetype=gift?token=cbcc5e5d-a679-4397-81b0-b455d706027c
