ARGENTINA : Cristina Takes Over Trains; Tierra del Fuego Jobs Grow But E-Goods Are Costly.


     After last week's deadly Buenos Aires metro train crash...that killed 51 and injured 704...the government will temporarily take-over two train lines of the system...for 15 days...or until a crash probe is finished.
     Public anger had been growing over private company TBA's neglect of the metro train system...even before the disastrous accident.

   AND:  Jobs and the electronics industry grow in Tierra del Fuego...thanks to Cristina's  
'el impuestazo'/big tax...VAT doubling...and tax incentives. But e-products cost double in BA...Apple still won't bite producing there...and Chile benefits from sales.
