The big Twobreakfasts plan to save Peru from recession is the “PEE” (Plan de Estímulo Económico or Economic Stimulus Plan). The whole idea is basically pumping a shitload of money into the economy via public works (roads, build schools, hospitals…a whole list of stuff like that) using funds tucked away for the rainy day. The liars at FinMin came up with a plan to spend U$2.5Bn in 2009 which would, according to their skewed slide rules, add 3% GDP growth to Peru this year and save the country from the abyss.
Well here we are six months down the line and how is the plan coming along?
There’s more chance of Diego Maradona bedding Keira Knightley than there is of this plan adding 3% to Peru’s GDP this year, but I doubt anyone in the higher echelons of Twobreakfastslandia cares a damn because there’s always INEI available to fix the figures for them. Style above substance? Of course! It’s South America, dude.
