ARGENTINA Currency Devaluation and Its Effects on Industries:  ARGENTINA Currency Devaluation and Its Effects on Industries TEAM 3 Dave Heyl Deep Patel Hilary Shah Charles Paterson ARGENTINA:  ARGENTINA Population: 38,740,807 Government: Republic GDP: $391 billion Key Industries:  Key Industries Agriculture Some major exports: corn, wheat, soy, beef Accounts for about 7.0% GDP Services Financial Travel and Tourism Automotive Industry and Growth E-Commerce Impact on consumers AGRICULTURE:  AGRICULTURE Represents 7% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Produces 10% of world trade in wheat, 12.5% in corn, and 13.5% in soy 3rd largest organic meat producer, with 90% of it destined for export markets Remained fairly stable throughout devaluation AGRICULTURE:  AGRICULTURE Exports could reach US$15.3 billion in 2003 Exchange rate: US $1 = 1.4 pesos Seems like a 40% price advantage Doesn’t necessarily translate into a price advantage. “Look for world commodity prices to be little impacted by this devaluation. Inflation will rear its ugly head in Argentina and wipe out any price advantage expected by their farmers and ranchers.” American Farm Bureau Federation Senior Economist John Skorburg AGRICULTURE:  AGRICULTURE Example: If wheat were selling at $3 a unit in the world market and Argentina is devalued by 40%, the assumption would be that Argentina will sell into the world market at $1.80. However, world prices for agricultural commodities have not plummeted since the devaluation and the real impact will be an inflated peso in Argentina. AGRICULTURE:  AGRICULTURE 30% of the economy is still dependent on agriculture. Employs 1million people 420,000 farms small family operations “Almost our entire sector is made up of individual farmers…They generate large numbers of jobs and are the backbone of the country.” Secretary of agriculture, livestock, fish and food AGRICULTURE:  AGRICULTURE Farmers are seen as the country’s solution, since 90% of the consumed food and 70% of the nations exports come from local farming activity. President Eduardo Duhalde hopes devaluation will boost exports and increase investment in the ailing economy. The devaluation is attracting new investors, but John Skorburg believes that producers will hold on to their product until the internal price of it adjusts to the new peso.
