    If your politicians were not so corrupt maybe,just maybe, other countries would invest. You can't expect countries or corporations to invest when they see corruption on an industrial scale.I was going to buy land years ago in Argentina but my then wife persuaded me not to. And she was Argentine.

    abuse quickly.

    Pipino, the US seems happy enough despite spending a cool $1,109,000,000,000 more than they took in last year. Perhaps they are heading for the same place as Argentina, in the end?

    Viejopatagon, the cuts you suggest are only likely to worsen government services, including the legal system. Making improvements to anything generally costs money, which is rather the problem with following the IMF's edicts...
