“At the start of the twentieth century, Argentina was one of the wealthiest countries in the world. The capital, Buenos Aires, was known as ‘the Paris of South America’. A lot can happen in a hundred years. Argentina today is in grave crisis. It has defaulted on its sovereign debt three times since 2001, and a few months ago, it faced an annualized inflation rate of over 200 percent—one of the highest in the world. Why? What happened? Argentina’s new president says it’s simple: socialism. When Javier Milei took office in December 2023, he became the world’s first libertarian head of state.” (06/06/24)
