ARGENTINA 2003

The crisis in Argentina, consequence of a faltering economy and the strict demands of the World Bank, affects rich and poor alike. Yet the consequences for the two groups differ. Particularly at night the contrast between the two parallel worlds becomes visible. In Buenos Aires the youth from wealthy families indeed must keep a tight grip on their expenditures, but they can still party until deep into the night. A stone's-throw away the cartoneros (cardboard collectors) rummage for old paper and glass. What they earn from it is hardly enough for one meal a day. In daylight hours aid organisations therefore distribute extra food.
