Cockfights: Caba vs. Buenos Aires Government

The confrontation between the Head of Government of CABA, Horacio Larreta, and the Buenos Aires Governor of the Province of Buenos Ayres, Axel Kicillof, is a constant. As long as the centralist political regime remains, the discussion will be the same: the fight for resources.

In this dispute, which is purely ideological, as in wars, not only the people lose, but also the truth, which seems to matter little. The indices and statistics are hidden, misinterpreted, drawn or distorted in favor of one and the other. And a story is bought.

Half of the people who work in CABA come from the Conurbano. But there are also those who live in CABA and work in the Province. According to data from the Buenos Aires Statistics and Census Directorate (2021), they indicate that in CABA there are 2,741,500 formal jobs, of which half -1,365,500- are occupied by people who lived in the City and 1,376,500 in the Conurbano. In turn, 265,500 Buenos Aires residents worked in the Conurbano.

It is estimated that around 2 million people enter CABA, from Monday to Saturday, for different reasons. It is a large urban city that permanently interacts and should work, collaborate and cooperate, for the good of the entire town.

About 14% of the 18-year-old population residing in the Conurbano move to CABA to receive care, while only 4% do so in the opposite direction. They represent approximately 1.5 million people who moved from the Conurbano to Buenos Aires hospitals, while around 122 thousand do it in the opposite direction. Likewise, 33% of the patients, with permanent residence in the Conurbano, have been admitted to CABA hospitals.

The region called “conurbano” was born as an extension of the Federal Capital, but without knowing where it ends. It continues to expand, with other names, today it is: Metropolitan Area of ​​Greater Buenos Ayres (AMBA), which goes from Escobar to General Rodríguez, from Cañuelas to San Vicente and La Plata-Berisso. There are 40 municipalities plus the City of Buenos Aires. It is the fourteenth most populous urban agglomeration in the world.

The Conurbano has one of the worst figures and indices in Argentina. Responsible: the Federal Co-participation Law; the centralist regime, where the municipalities are always looking towards La Plata and, this one to the central power; its governors do not know the province, most of them are from Buenos Aires or contributed. There is a deep migration of young people who leave their villages for the big cities. The center and south of Buenos Aires have a negative rate of 2% in population growth. In the coastal municipalities it is positive, with 20% and in the Conurbano 35%, in the last 10 years. The province of Buenos Ayres needs a population policy, it has 20 areas of government…generating bureaucracy that retards all political execution.

Our province does not need to beg for resources, to look for who to take them from. fight. It requires that they know it, that they understand it and interpret it.

The province of Buenos Aires needs to terraform itself, transform its government structures into a more federal, decentralized government system, with an autonomous municipal system, where the people are a fundamental part of the future decisions they want to make… and not stone guests. For a human Buenos Ayres.
