    Excellent. Bring'em on. They will be welcome to a land with future and promise. Guaranteed by the Argentine constitution that promotes European Inmigration. This is as it always has been and as it should be.

    Majority of the Dutch and Germans are going to Brazil. I don't blame them at all for doing that. Meanwhile Europe (include the UK while many here deny it, classic ignorance) is falling apart.

    Southren Europe says it all dunn it. Now where's the figures for Northern or Western Europe. Me I would realy, realy be impressed if 20,000 Western Europeans emmigrated. Sorry but I would, I would be realy worried, if Western Europeans emmigrated there for a better life.

    Nawh, not Britain. Mercop said SOUTHERN Europe.
    Latin Europe. Portugal Italy Spain Greece.

    ( Greece being a border between latin and islamic cultures. Their capital is in the Middle East geographically, their state-funded religiosity tho, is a Catholic lookalike.)

    Here is an interesting entry on the Latin Monetary Union

    a currency union, just like the Euro, thaat included Spain, Greece, France, Italy, etc., AND Venezuela! It ended with the First World Water balloon-fight.

    Do not get me wrong, I am not against anyone emmigrating to make a better life for themselfs. I am against anyone using it to pooh, pooh the countries they emmigrated from? Why? cos it stinks of nationalism! it's saying, your counrty sucks, ours is better, cos they left yours to come here! And that my friends aint nice, but hey, what the fuck do nationalists care!

    No, no oodles of straw-haired, apple-cheeked and sky-eyed German and Dutch packing suitcases to Brazil this time :)

    •Netherlands unemployment 5.3%,
    •Germany's 5.5.%
    • Brazil's 6%
    •Argentina's absolutely honest 7.2 %.

    WW2 only happened because Germany was hungry & in hyperinflation prior, following a UNIQUE ( therefore destabilizing) event: reparations in the Treaty of Versaille. (They payed off the Treaty of Versaille in 2010).

    1.Economic challenge can ^ nationalism. Authoritarianism.
    2. We know what happened to their tiny, peace-loving neighbor
    *ahem, the Dutch*

    History lesson over.

    Africans are the biggest exodus wave into Brazil. as of 2009.

    You want to make your mind up mate, on another page here you say you were born an american and owe allegiance to no Queen or King, seems you do not know who yhe hell you are! because reading your posts I would say your allegiance is most certainly Argentinian. What, your life in the states really that bad, why the hell don't you follow your own advice and emmigrate back to your motherland!

    Reality Check, you a moron and you can't read. I'm Dutch and I live in the United States. I left Holland because I wanted and I could leave it. I go back when I want, but I'm not going to do that, because it's in the same mess like here in the United States. The whole anti Argrie crap is driving nutzzz. Stop drinking the kool-aid and smoking that crap what makes you a moron.

    No, no oodles of straw-haired, apple-cheeked and sky-eyed German and Dutch packing suitcases to Brazil this time :)

    ? you're such an idiot, anyway read. My generation and the ones of the 90's and begin 2000 do not like what's going on in Holland. We are the generation who move easy, integrate faster than ever into other societies and HATE the EURO for who we NOT voted for. The ones who can leave, are leaving because they want too.

    “Africans are the biggest exodus wave into Brazil. as of 2009.”
    I don't know much about Brazil but by studying it's history, culture etc etc, Brazil received immigrants from all over the world similar like the US (it has second largest of Brazilians of German roots and third largest community of Brazilians of Dutch roots behind to the US and Canada and it beats Australia).
    From that toilet newspaper Reuters you're not going to learn much. Do your own homework.

    @2 Most of this emigration is understandable. Italians and Spaniards have never been too keen on working. They'll be right at home in LatAm. Not the first major influx of Germans either. Wasn't the last lot around 1945/6? And the Dutch just want to be closer to their drug supply.
    @3 It's OK. We're going to dump the EU. Too many poor, lazy, layabouts. Much like LatAm.
    @9 So much hatred. But that tends to be what you get from cowards. Stay put and fight to put your country right? No. Run away. You say you left Holland. Sure about that? Holland is a region, not a country. But, OK. Did you leave North Holland or South Holland?

    I can't help remembering that quote from the Bill Murray film “Stripes” do you remember? when he said of the Americians “Our fore-fathers were kicked out of every civilized country in the world”.........

    Please, try not to speak, you are re-inforcing the prejedices everyone is forming about you.
