    Siege mentality of actual kelpers leaders is making the cost of conflict to be paid by future generations. Ultra low scale economy with all landbased industries underdeveloped.

    Ok Dirk, but if you research the region you will discover that stanley is still a small village; like punta arenas, ushuaia, rio grande and rio gallegos were 80 years ago. Stanley is stagnated as time wouldn have passed. Actual descedants of those continental pioneers of those cities are now enjoying the fruits of development, they are the owners of the welth of those cities. Meanwhile actual kelpers are fighting against the same problems they have 60 years ago: isolation, poorcomms, poor links, poor infraestructure, and underdeveloped industries like tourism. Look around the region and you will see that siege mentality is making kelpers to be out of the growth that are enjoying the other southern cities.

    Wealth - Big cities, traffic, noise, trash, and shantytowns.

    Growth - public debt, fake money, 54% inflation, corrupt government, Peronism, Kirchnerism, kleptocracy, strikes, and soon, Yuan.
