Cry for Argentina

I am taking 16 NC State MBAs to Argentina and Chile later this month to learn about the different environment facing businesses in those two countries. This week's Economist magazine has an outstanding piece about Nestor and Cristina Kirchner, the husband-and-wife team that has run Argentina since 2003. Out of control spending. Corruption. Inflation. Punitive taxes and price controls. Confiscation of private pensions. Alas, Argentina has seen this play before and we all know how it will end.
