    Believe that Macri is definitely the best option available for the 2019 Presidential elections. Especially if one looks around at the rest of the eventual candidates that may finally decide to present their candidacy. And that means not only Cristina but the rest of those still “undecided” as to what way to jump.
    This doesn't mean he's not made more than one mistake during his present tenure of office.............but let's not forget the “inheritance” this government received from the previous one. Certainly not an easy task - not to say virtually impossible - to clean up the rampant corruption without many suffering the consequences. Unfortunately those on the lower end of the “income ladder” being the ones that suffer the most.

    “...Macri is definitely the best option available for the 2019 Presidential elections.”


    Macri's stature is that of a wizard capable of reaching previously unattained heights in mismanagement, paired only with an unbridled greed for private business opportunities.

    Macri has succeeded, in less than three years, to bring Argentina “back to the world,” which in Macriland lingo means borrowing like there is no tomorrow, to a point where interest payments will be the second largest item in the 2019 budget.

    Macri has also achieved unparalleled accomplishments in demolishing the domestic productive sector by reducing the population's purchase power and by opening wide the doors to imports.

    The Macri method to reduce labour costs (an old ambition of his) has been allowing inflation to fester while at the same time putting the brakes on wage increases.

    “Let's not forget the “inheritance” this government received...virtually impossible - to clean up the rampant corruption without many suffering the consequences,” writes Little J.

    The above sentence is the cherry on Little J's cake.

    So, Little J...should we take that you are concerned some of the corrupt ones may “suffer the consequences?” I thought ending corruption would inevitably take down both current and past government officials and company leaders.

    Also, a large part of Macri's campaign promises was to end corruption. Can you explain what would now prevent his government from fulfilling such promise?

    Be interesting to know.
