Listen to the report carefully. Did they say President Cristina Fernandez is benefiting from the world’s fastest growing economy? They almost nail it. Argentina is expected to grow around 8 percent in 2011 according to the IMF after last year’s 9.2 percent growth rate. The is about 1 percent lower than China’s growth. We’ll post a table of the world’s fastest and slowest growing economies tomorrow.
People in our profession have have strong opinions and long memories with respect to Argentina. Here’s ours: good people, beautiful women, excellent food, great wine, very cosmo culture, soccer powerhouse and much more; and, generally, a great place to hang out. Argentinos really know how to live and we love ’em! We’ll leave the economics and politics for a later discussion.
