Argentina's market drops 48% in one day

I am brushing up on my Español. If I must do Banana Republic I might as well do it properly and move to somewhere like Argentina.

¡Viva la revolución, camaradas!
The leftists say

Hasta la revolución , compañeros .

... but this guy isn't one of them.

And Castillano

You'd get a job as a gaucho on an estancia somewhere there Wayne. Or, try Uruguay. We stayed at Panagea Ranch in Uruguay for a week playing gaucho. Was good fun. Didn't enjoy separating the calves from their mothers one day. The cows were not happy. They broke down fences that night to get back to their babies. It was a bit sad actually.
 
Yeah I heard about the j instead of the y sound down there. I learnt Mexican Spanish back in SoCal at school, so that would be very different.

The difference in pronunciation from Mexico and the west coast of Sth America to Argentina is extraordinary. Spanish people can't even understand people from BA.

Can't comment on Spaniards understanding some cockney-esque dialect from BA, but among Australians it always shocks me when they say they CANNOT understand a Scotsman or Irishman or Appalachian (or any other native English speaker). Some people may not be overall dumb, but are just lacking in a certain type of mental flexibility to understand diverse dialects of their own tongue.
 
What's France's most successful colony frog? Quebec? New Caledonia? I like Vietnam but I'm not sure what you left them except for bread sticks which produced the amazing Banh Mi.
And devil's island, the original house of horrors
 
As pointed in my post, the french ideal of intellectuals sipping coffee, not working, hating money and fromenting revolution is not exactly an economic winner.
We did well a lonnnng time ago by helping the creation of the USA (constitution etc), and Napoleon thru his European empire did bring civil laws, democracy systems,engineering and national schoolings, police department etc..but since the fall of France after wwi..no real french colony I would dream of...
Africa is a dumpxxx where the french intellectuals created their own anti colonialist movement, and where most countries have been going backward in the last 50y..but for population numbers ,numbers now overriding the colonial power on the mainland.
Places like la reunion, and Guadeloupe are a kind of success in a multi racial and multi religious integrated into a french nation/lifestyle but the last 30 y of socialism has transformed these in our equivalent of NT: multigenerationsl welfare dumps in paradise.
At least, even the far left there is not yet planning to give them yet the voice?.
So no brilliant ex colony or still attached colony I can think of.
By nature, the heavy PS, centrally controlled french government does not fit well with a distributed territory.
Paris making decision on the legal fishing size or rent fixed price in st Miquelon off terra nova, or Tahiti....nope does not work well.
And we left these government models as legacy in former colonies.
Maybe someone can think of a success story?
Not off hand may take awhile to find something would could look even quarter decent.
 
" disappointed by Chile.. and expect same in Argentina... .a leftist mindset, arrogant, lazy and pseudo intellectual.. .all same points leading to the fall of my native country which I could recognise with horror in Chile... expect to see same in Argentina
Jorge Luis Borges writing of his countryfolk : "The Argentinian is an Italian who speaks Spanish, thinks French and would like to be English” (“El argentino es un italiano que habla español, piensa en francés y querría ser inglés”).

Such musings are probably only a dilemma for the porteño elite, however. Wags have expanded the traits along these lines: "The Argentinians are Italians who speak Spanish; pretend American salaries and would like to live as the English, make French speeches but vote like the Senegalese, think like leftists but live like bourgeois, praise Canadian entrepreneurship but have Bolivian organization, love Swiss order but practice Iraqi disorder”.
 
I wonder what has been the impact of the crash of the Argentine stock exchange on the various funds that invest in international markets ?
Any info ?
