    They didn't mention Argentina, because it's a backwards nation full of clowns who vote for free for all socialist protectionists clowns.

    hey think, check the map they posted on your wikipedia link. the color of the Falklands (uk) is light blue. light blue=European Union...not the color of Argentina (South American Member)....LAUGH.

    Good luck for that trio. Competition with the cheap manufactured goods from China will demolish any chance these three could have to develop national industries. And that is true even for Chile. Chile exports are made up almost entirely of commodities, a situation that is perplexing for the supposedly most developed economy in Latin America.

    A good principle of trade is to sell what you want to sell, whilst buying things that are either unimportant to the whole economy or that you can copy and improve on.
