Between the weather and the dollar

Is it going to rain? How much is the dollar? According to Google, Argentines are more concerned about currency than about meteorology.

As we are
Entre el clima y el dolar

This is perhaps not surprising, but it sure defines us. At the time of doing online searches, Argentinians are more interested in knowing the price of the   dollar  than the   weather forecast  . That's what  Google himself says. In the past year,  Argentines  googled the word "  dollar  ” about 130,000 times a day.

“Google searches associated with other currencies increased by 136%. And the   dollar  is the star: check your  quote  is as much or even more common than checking the weather”, details a report on online personal finance in  Argentina  presented by  Google  .

Looks like we don't care so much about how much coat we have to wear when we go out. US currency quotation is our main concern. And it's no wonder: our entire personal  economy  is tied to that number. Between May 2018 and May 2019, it rose by 80%. And those   devaluations  have a lot of weight in our day to day.
