    “Argentina is going through a crisis that originated in 2018...”

    Correction. Argentina's recession pairing up with high inflation originated Dec. 10, 2015 -- the day Mauricio Macri assumed the presidency. Inflation did exist before that date. However, the deep deterioration of all productive sectors, the fall in purchasing power and un unprecedented increase of foreign debt and capital flight belong to the current “business friendly” government.

    The continued bad economic news in Argentina have now been a bit tempered by a scandal shaking the very foundations of the federal justice, as evidence coming out every day shows prosecutor Stornelli working with a false lawyer and a Clarin journalist to extort money from individuals under the threat of being involved in the “notebook corruption” affair and put in prison.

    Please do not try to shake the foundation+tradition on which many nations were built! The masses would just feel completely lost without living in misery & corruption! Afterall, they are making their best efforts to lead their lives as they are well-accustomed to!
