    “Some polls show a united opposition would win a second round.”
    Wishful thinking. Nobody knows yet how many Massa (a peronist dissident) voters would turn around and vote for Macri and how many would for Scioli.

    Nothing changes in Argentina, same old same old, will they never learn or indeed have a credible democracy in the future, more skeletons in the cupboard in the runup to the elections, what a country, sad really. Rampant devaluation, runaway inflation how are you going to deal with those, while people have so many scams to their names, What would be good for Argentiona would be military rule for 10 years to sort out the mess, but would it? don't forget that they all have Italian genes.

    So, in the event of a runoff Massa might not be the “Kingmaker” claimed above.

    @3 golfcronie
    Decades of Military rule in the past didn’t seem to make much if any difference.

    Simply added foreign invasions and widespread human rights abuses to the mix.

    Quique.....any idea why kirchner's needs armies patrolling stores for price increases to offset the sellers rising wholesale costs? You can't freeze retail prices and leave wholesale prices launch into space.

    Have you ANY clue what it is like to shop for food or groceries in. Atgentina? It's not like Pricemart, Overwaitea or Save on Foods. But you have no idea now do you?
