And to think, just over a century ago the economic situation in Argentina was great!
I’ve read that European emigrants often would toss a coin to see where to settle. The USA or Argentina.

But, that was before Peron came to power and began the slow swirl around the drain.

You’re so right.

I spent several weeks there three years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though Kirchner was el presidente.

Yes, according to histories which I have read, immigrants to Argentina, in the 1900 era, did better than those in any other location, and no doubt thought they had made the correct choice.
