Carta Abierta: The nation is in danger

The Carta Abierta group which brings together intellectuals who support the Kirchnerite Victory Front have published a new letter titled "The Nation in Danger," in which the authors called for greater state control in foreign trade and defended government-instigated price agreements.

In an assembly held in the National Library, members of the organisation signalled that "a handful of big companies [Cargill, Noble Argentina, Bunge Argentina, Dreyfus, Molinos Río de la Plata, Vicentin, Aceitera General Deheza, Nidera and Toepfer] export more than 90 percent of Argentine soy grain, oil and flour, the historic base of the country's wealth and production."

The businesses are accused of organising "a financial clamp on the government, forcing it to take difficult measures that compromise the country's future."

"This is not simply one more episode in our national economic history. The big agro-business organisations have all of the strongest international, financial and communication links and they are always prepared to create the illusion that their interests coincide with those of a large part of Argentina's disconcerted middle class."

For that reason, Carta Abierta called for "an advance in mechanisms that establish state management of foreign trade."
