    I suspect that Mercopress is in hands of a group of Uruguayans who wants to promote Uruguay into a nation what it really isn't. Uruguay is actually becoming a state of Brazil (or a failed province of Argentina). No nation can be truly independent with a big government, controlled by foreigners and highly dependent on a bigger neighbor.

    Belgium is a failure, Denmark, so far, is doing good and is a success. Your nation is a failure. Admit it.

    (3) Fido Dido….
    Denmark has an enormous State Apparatus.....
    Is still a “Social Democratic” State with big accent on the “Social” part…
    Is as “controlled by foreigners” as a little EU member Country of 5 Million people can be…..
    Is highly dependent of their bigger Neighbor to the south; Germany…

    So much for your theory then……………

    Think, Argentina in reality isn't a Social Democratic state. In your mind it is. It's a nation that promises but knows it cannot deliver it, but does it by cheating and lying to the people. That is amigo, a Kleptocracy. By reading many comments of you here, I understand you don't like to read the facts of your country. Denmark and Holland (my country) are highly dependent on Germany. Economically we are doing fine, because all three nations produce (wealth is measured by producing, not by consuming) and have great infrastructure to export. Holland biggest income is “Toll”. What I don't like is the big EU government, that actually control us, and all the subsidies that are unfair and wrong. Idiot Surf14, typed he never heard a European complaining about that. The truth is, he never spoke to one, or never listened to one or never read a comment of me when I typed about big government is bad.

    Most of the worlds economys are highly dependent on each other, especially China and the US, Both of whom are highly dependant on eachother. Probably the main factor that there will never be a war between the two nations, as it would cripple them both.

    Also, a greater number of countries are investing in Latin America; although the US continues to be the largest single contributor, investment from Europe has grown strongly since the privatizations.
