He “chainsaw plan” that begins to unfold mercy will very surely bring, as he himself said, a process of stagflation. That is, at the same time that prices continue to rise, there will be a drop in economic activity, with layoffs and suspensions, closure of small businesses and general impoverishment.

However, in this plan not everyone loses. There will be winners: los great businessmen who have been amassing huge profits in the last period, in the heat of price increases and wage losses. Those large capitalist sectors that They improved their profitability in all these years. For them there was no adjustment with either Macri or the Frente de Todos. Now, there won’t be either with Milei. On the contrary, they will continue to win.

For example, big foods like Arcor or Molinos Río de la Plata. The company born in Córdoba – and which had significant growth in the years of the dictatorship – is among the main winners of recent years. He won more than $25 billion in the first half of the year. For its part, Molinos reached the figure of $9,000 million.

These profits are inseparable from the constant markup of prices. As highlighted in the document “High inflation regime, oligopolies and economic groups” – published by FLACSO with the signatures of Pablo Manzanelli and Leandro Amoretti – in the most concentrated sectors of the economy, the increase in their prices the increase in their wholesale prices reached at 204.5%, well above wholesale prices in general (180.2%) and retail prices (169.8%). This growth corresponds to the period between the third quarter of 2020 and the same period in 2022.

That is to say, these big businessmen have been amassing fortunes while the working and popular majority are the ones who are becoming poorer. You have to pass the chainsaw to them. One has to adjust to those who are making huge profits at the expense of the people’s hunger. Milei’s plan is not that. It’s the opposite. It is that the working people pay for the crisis.

That’s why you have to prepare a big fight to defeat his attempt at adjustment. It is necessary start organizing right now in every place of work, study and in every neighborhood. To take steps on the path to standing up the strength of the working class and the poor people. The social force of the majority of the country, which is also what makes the country function. Against Milei’s war plan, the IMF and the big employers, that force must be organized.
