And so much of it south of our borders.

Argentina’s Economic Misery Could Bring Populism Back to the Country
Mr. Macri’s supporters heralded his 2015 election as a miraculous outbreak of normalcy in a country with a well-earned reputation for histrionics. He would cease the reckless spending that had brought Argentina infamy for defaulting on its debts eight times. Sober-minded austerity would win the trust of international financiers, bringing investment that would yield jobs and fresh opportunities.
But as Mr. Macri seeks re-election this year, Argentines increasingly lament that they are absorbing all strife and no progress. Even businesses that have benefited from his reforms complain that he has botched the execution, leaving the nation to confront the same concoction of misery that has plagued it for decades. The economy is contracting. Inflation is running above 50 percent, and joblessness is stuck above 9 percent. Poverty afflicts a third of the population, and the figure is climbing.

In a trip I made there in 2009, I was in Rosario, and spent time in a big park near the river, and I was amazed at how long their siestas were. It seemed like all afternoon. I went to a steak house around 9pm and no one was there and was told to come back around 10pm which is when they start filing in to the restaurant. What a difference from the U.S.!!

Overall, I think of many Argentinians as spoiled!

And it wouldn't surprise me at all to see Christina back in power!

the way things are going, i believe Argentina wont be white anymore, to poster in the Americas forum, just like Chile as never being consider a white country before now even thou the majority of people is brown they somehow woke up one day being white. who knows maybe next it will go the the way most Latin American countries behave(if x country becomes Americas bitchh they start getting a good reputation on the news and by the world bank and IMF even thou is the same 3rd **** hole world country, just look at Colombia pretty much the same narco state high murder rates and getting all this good reviews, but it will go back to the same as before, since Colombia didn't deliver on the Venezuela coop, CIA is mad)and it will go back to being a brown country.

I remember a trivia question from back in the day (bar trivia, from my favorite bar in Buffalo where the former teacher who owns the bar looks up a bunch of unconventional topics for the monthly trivia night) from which I learned (or was told, anyway) that Argentina has more psychiatrists per capita than any country in the world. First thing I thought of when I saw the thread title.
