The term "Banana Republic" was coined for a small country in Latin America that is economically dependent on a single export commodity, such as bananas, and is run accordingly in a non-democratic way. Argentina is now putting those smaller countries to shame. Argentina is a large country with many natural resources. But it is not run well, has serious corruption problem, and the economy collapsed and needed to be bailed out by the US some 10 years ago. Now we see perhaps the main cause of such shaky performance. The Argentinians have no real respect to law and order. For a fistful of dollars (and $1.2 Billion is really small change) they are selling their soul to the devil. Really shameful, and a shame that a Jew is involved in this corrupt government.
