    After the feast comes the famine. Protectionism seems to be the solution to internal woes in South America, a continent on the decline.

    Let the poor cretin be. He is fully aware that his continent Europe is on the decline, for good. That makes him bitter and makes him say ridiculous fantasies like South America is on the decline, when Chile and Argentina last year entered the “very high development” status, Colombia/Brazil/Chile/Uruguay/Peru have won investment grade, and Brazil just surpassed the UK in GDP. Only a deluded fool would claim that is decline.

    The future is not written, and South America may keep rising or not. But EVERYONE knows Europe is going down, because of debt, because of terrorism making their lives miserable, because of demographic suicide, because of shrinking budgets and GDP. There is no chance the UK/Europe will rise again, it's over for them. And this is their last hurrah of arrogance. It will be over within 20 years.

    @3 “Europe is on the decline” LOL! If only we had an economy like Argentina's, if only we had RG pesos instead of Euros. All over Europe there are queues outside RG embassies... in your wet dreams :))
