In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.
People come from all over to visit BA - mostly from the US, Europe and Brazil. The locals are a melting pot of Italian, Spanish, German and Jewish. There seems to be quite a big lack of Asian and African inheritance. As an expat, I am always meeting people from around the world, and eating food from different parts of the world every week.
What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?
As an expat, many people teach English or work for American sales companies. The best part of this city is the ability to be an entrepreneur! You can start up your dream company for much less than you ever could in the US, and there is a huge niche of expats to market to!
In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
The priorities of the locals are work and family, but the social night life is a large part of everyone's lives! The expats are focused on learning Spanish and adjusting to the culture by slowing down the pace with a mate in the park and a trip to a night club until 6am.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
Buenos Aires is a BIG city. But to me, it has a small town feel. I live in the chic Palermo which is much more calm than the center of the city. I think there is somethig for everyone in BA, but if you do not like a big city, lots of noise or pollution, you might want to head for somewhere with a slower pace like Mendoza or Bariloche (both beautiful!).
