(I am Ilk)
having driven across some of argentina, I can say that a person from the US (esp. agricultural areas) may find themselves simply dumbfounded when they ask themselves how Arg. can NOT be a major economy.
The answer, of course, is a good illustration of how catastrophic an impact negative government policies can have.
They forgot to mention that in 1982 in order to distract the population from their collapsing economy the Argentine leaders launched an unprovoked attack on Great Britain. To a certain extent it worked, the crew of the Belgrano certainly more worried about the inflation of their life-rafts than the inflation of their currency. Watch for Obama to spark a crisis in the very near future.

Conservatives did what conservatives do. They took care of themselves. That includes educating their kids. The problem is, public schools, which began to decline were left to socialists. So, the majority of kids in the last 2 generations, have been taught the virtues of socialism, and the inheirent evils of capitalism.
Our kids may be better educated, but they still have to live in a socialist crap hole of a country.

What life is like in Argentina today
is what it's going to be like for us starting this fall/summer:
This guy wrote a great book too. It's an eye opener on what going from 1st world to 3rd world over night feels like, and how to survive the next morning.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

I understand Chile is doing quite well these days. Their government must be doing something right.

(I served and protected my country for 31 years. Democrats spent that time trying to destroy it.)
Peron was out of office in 1955 and then we jump to 1989 in this “history” lesson. what happened in between? who was in charge? were there peaceful transitions of power or coups to change leaders? the answers must contain information that the author doesn’t want to discuss because it probably conflicts with the narrative he’s trying to create. I’d advise doing a little independent research before taking this at face value?
