    Lets face it geo, investing anywhere in SA is more preferable than Argentina.

    I mean who wants to invest in a country that is willing to steal another countries company?

    Heck even Venezuela looks like a good place to invest VS Argentina.

    Argentina invades Uruguay from November to March, then they go back to Argentina.

    It's called holiday time. No problems that I have seen with these Argentinians, but they are not rabid Malvanistas.

    @2 Getting a bit jealous are we, where is Argentinas invitation to Spain? Ha, ha.

    Well done Uruguay for presenting a decent, law-abiding role model for the region. Uruguay can court investment and turn itself into a mini Swtizerland, with a great lumbering laggard next door (like Italy). And yes, the Argentines who come in summer, if they are permitted to take their money out, are not usually the boofheads that would make comments à la @ 2 & 3.

    Geo- I think you will find that Uruguay is rapidly overtaking Argentina for quality export beef etc - you are on the verge of having to import the stuff I hear? Thanks to Kirchener polices in recent years a lot of top Arg Beef Cattle producers have sold up and moved to Uruguay!

    @ 9 do you mean Aussie sunshine personally or his country? His country is the model Argentina should aspire to. It has the best-performing 1st world economy and is a large foreign investor; its dollar is worth more than the USD. Maybe if the Argentieans had more actual faith in their country and its currency and invested at home rather than holdings its wealth in Miami, things would be a lot better for the country.

    This is all predicated on the assumption that Aussie Sunshine is Australian!

    @11 Austral,
    l doubt very much that “aussie” sunshine is Australian.
    He knows very little about Australia.
    He does pretend to be an Aussie though.
    My guess is he/she is Argentine.

    Uruguay is a lovely country that has never been tarnished with fascist peronism

    Uruguay “belongs” to argieland. Mujica has seen to that. Everyone remember how argies flood into Uruguay, exchange their worthless “money” for Uruguayan currency and then the argies refuse to buy their currency back. That's theft. Typical argie behaviour! DO NOT INVEST IN URUGUAY!!

    Sometimes Conqueror you make yourself look like a complete Pratt.

    You have NO evidence to support that statement, because as it turns out the traders, etc, in Uruguay took credit cards in U$D from the visitors.

    AND why, even if it were true would that be the fault of Uruguay?

    Pepe has his problems: he is too close to the Mad Bitch. His support for nationalizing YPF is plainly out-of-step with Europe, but that does not mean Uruguay would ever do that.

    Please try and keep up with the facts and don't give the likes of 'I can't Think' a way to criticise Uruguay. We have enough lies spread by him and Dunni-Burger as it is.

    If Uruguay belong to anyone nowadays, it's Brazil, not Argie. Shows your ignorance.
