President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner announced today an 11.31 percent rise in pensions to be effective as of March. Together with last December’s raise, this accounts for a 27.35 percent total rise in pensions.

With this measure, the average pension will be of $4804 argentine pesos, while the minimum pension will be of $2757 pesos.

The President, who spoke from Government’s House in a nationwide broadcast, explained that Argentina’s pension system is the largest in Latin America, with 7 million beneficiaries.

“Some might call this measure ‘populist’ and say that it will lead to inflation. But it’s a lie that economic expansion necessarily leads to inflation. We believe in economic development based on popular consumption”, Kirchner said.

Ms. Kirchner also announced a 200 percent rise in scholar aid. The benefit will pass from $170 to $510 pesos.
