    Just like blaming COVID outcomes on 'populist' leaders, economic investment performance, or the lack thereof, is now blamed on 'extremist' leaders. Mind you, these populists, so unpopular with crony capitalists, were duly elected by their populace and in past decades, US moneybags had no problem at all dealing with all sorts of dictatorial regimes around the world, frequently never legitimized by the electorate. It all depends, it seems, on the particular flavor of political and ideological bias holding sway among the US ruling elite.

    I suspect that this type of movement is more a reflection of the perceived increase of ‘risk’ in those countries, rather than any ideology.

    A simple business calculation rather than an ideological one.

    If the return is high enough someone will always invest, even Argy Gov bonds get bought.

    In Brazil there are no longer rentiers and volatile foreign investments. Our Stock Exchange is lean. Who insures the stability of the Stock Exchange is our own people and capital.
