    Argentina is a developed country, with an educated population, a huge middle class, and tremendous natural resources. But when you look at it learn quickly why its nationals want to flee, and why anti-establishment "anarcho-capitalist" Javier Milei is leading in the polls and likely to win Argentina's presidency come October. The problem is inflation — 165% inflation as of July, according to Steve Hanke's inflation index, which is the most accurate reading. Tucker Carlson went down to Buenos Aires to find out exactly what that is like, exploring in a mere ten minutes on Twitter just how normal people...

    Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson traveled to Argentina to warn Americans that the U.S. could face the same downfall from “hyperinflation” and “reckless monetary policy.” Carlson said Argentina went from being one of the wealthiest nations in the world, with cities and culture comparable to Paris, to one of the poorest by devaluing its national currency. “Hyperinflation and reckless monetary policy could soon devastate the global economy. We traveled to Argentina, where it’s already happened,” Carlson wrote to Twitter. “For politicians, money is power. They always crave more but because they don’t actually produce anything, they’ve got limited ways to...

    Asserting that the country’s foreign policy should always be based on reciprocity, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah said on Monday if China does not accept “one India” policy, New Delhi should reconsider support to Beijing’s ‘One China’ policy. Asking why China should have a problem with any meeting in Jammu and Kashmir or any other part of India, the National Conference Vice President said if China continues with this stance, India should also raise questions on Tibet, Taiwan and Hong Kong. “I think it’s extremely unfortunate that the government of India keeps repeating its (adherence to )...

    hile much has been said about the emergence of a more "multipolar" world order, far less attention has been paid in the United States, and the West more generally, to the actual causes and consequences of a trend that is gaining traction across many parts of the globe. Most recently, evidence of this shift was apparent during the recent BRICS summit hosted by South Africa alongside fellow member states China, Brazil, India and Russia. Beijing and Moscow predictably used the annual gathering as an opportunity to deliver swipes at the U.S., portraying the country as a hegemonic power unwilling to...

    Argentina's outsider presidential aspirant, Javier Milei, is a rare breed — a hirsute 52-year-old libertarian economist with a hatred of all things authoritarian, including China’s ruling Communist Party, and a penchant for tantric sex. And he just placed first in his country’s presidential primary contest. “One of the biggest thieves in the history of humankind is the Central Bank,” Milei told the Buenos Aires Times earlier this week. “We should try to get out of the blinders that the statist indoctrination imposed on us.” It’s a battle cry to warm the hearts of the most committed old supporter of Ron...

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — The Argentine peso plunged Monday after a shaggy-haired 52-year—old anti-establishment candidate who admires former President Donald Trump came first in primary elections that will help determine the country’s next president. Milei wants to replace the peso with the dollar, and says that Argentina’s Central Bank should be abolished, and that he thinks climate change is a lie. He has characterized sex education as a ploy to destroy the family and has said that he believes the sale of human organs should be legal and it should be easier for Argentines to own handguns.

    After bringing crime, corruption and 116% inflation, Argentina's ruling Peronist leftists held elections, beginning with yesterday's all-party primary. They didn't like what happened next. According to Reuters:BUENOS AIRES, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Argentine voters punished the country's two main political forces in a primary election on Sunday, pushing a rock-singing libertarian outsider candidate into first place in a huge shake-up in the race towards presidential elections in October.With some 90% of ballots counted, far-right libertarian economist Javier Milei had 30.5% of the vote, far higher than predicted, with the main conservative opposition bloc behind on 28% and the ruling Peronist...

    A far-right libertarian candidate won Argentina’s open presidential primary election on Sunday, a surprising showing for a politician who wants to adopt the U.S. dollar as Argentina’s official currency and embraces comparisons to Donald Trump. Javier Milei, 52, a congressman, economist and former television pundit, secured 30 percent of the vote with 96 percent of the ballots counted, making him the front-runner for the presidency in the fall general election. Polls had suggested that Mr. Milei’s support was at about 20 percent, and political analysts had predicted that his radical policy proposals — including abolishing the country’s central bank —...

    Far-right populist Javier Milei rocked Argentina’s political establishment Sunday by emerging as the biggest vote-getter in primary elections to choose presidential candidates for the October general election in a nation battered by economic woes. Milei, an admirer of former U.S. President Donald Trump, says Argentina’s Central Bank should be abolished, thinks climate change is a lie, characterizes sex education as a ploy to destroy the family, believes the sale of human organs should be legal and wants to make it easier to own handguns. Votes were still being counted late Sunday, but analysts agreed that the upstart candidate who gained...
