It's disappointing to be born on this country, to learn of it's big history and culture just to… feel ashamed of what you are and what you seem to be living in what is named… HELL. Just thinking of the big and strong nation we used to be, breaks the hearts of so many Argentines that nobody of them has hope on this country and their only choice it's to leave the country and find a better and bright future somewhere else in the US, Canada or Europe.

Now our generation just wants to leave this land and never ever carry their Argentinian nationality with them.

Btw, looking for English daddy to get me the fuck out of this country, I'm a femboy, I cook well and I'll also make you feel in heaven in bed.

Btw, if you see argentinians commenting here, it's probably from the top 20% or less that has a good understanding of english, and therefore have a very biased (mostly right-wing) opinion, which is like half or even less of the story, the most internationally widespread one.

Because it's obviously a "third world country" but has a rather good education system and public services in the Paraná River region, otherwise mostly dispersed in what would be known as the "interior" of the country (related to good comerce and infrastructure of the port region during oligarchies and bad management of the most continental areas in regards to the global market of the previous centuries), the ones who say "study and gtfo" are the ones who can do so from almost the beginning. I'm technically almost middle-upper class (much more middle than upper) and have gone to Mexico, the US and Uruguay in international trips (can't do so anymore since the peso inflation hit HARD), which is a good place to be at economically for a very unstable country, but then again, nowhere near where fellow "homeland sell-outs" are.

There's a whole left-wing/right-wing/center dispute going on where everyone calls each other out for being insufferable extremists, fascists or communists.

The Left is usually young middle or lower class uni students that think they can fight capitalism and make a better version of Cuba.
The Right is mostly land-owners, businessmen/entrepeneurs and like 70% of media, "the rich and the fools" from the other two's point of view, but there's most of the money and powerful people that want a free market.
The Center is a mess of workers (center-left) and indecisive pals (center-right), mostly "no, I don't have a political view" bs and peronists, but then again, peronism goes from one side to the other and makes zero sense to everyone, and they may vote on either side of the spectrum.

When every party, reduced to two, pushes to either neoliberalism or a shitty version of capitalist socialism, people don't realize (they do, but can't control, which is basically the same) going back and forth between both systems that literally try to destroy each other is making the country more of a mess.

I will gtfo in its time, for sure, but many people won't even think of doing so because even with so much shit we say about it to the world, patriotism, family and national idealism are what ties most of us down and tries to push the country forward, but you won't hear much of them here.

I mean it sounds very similar to what Venuezela went through recently.

It starts with blaming corruption which is then used as an excuse to sell out the country. Which is then used as an excuse to nationalize industries and products.

Note if your solution is to take, take, and take. You have fallen into the blackhole of socialism.

Entitlements are addicting to the masses and are a gateway drug to socialism and economic stagnation. Yes if you love being a part of a medicore country and culture that is going no where, sure load it up.

The best thing to do is increase stability for investors and encourage innovation and development. Exporting can be a nice means of growing an economy, but shouldn't be the primary driver of your economy.

Do you realize that most of Argentina's wealth back then was concentrated in the 1-5% of the population, the oligarchs? Right?

Short answer:

Socialism.

Argentina was well on its way to becoming like Australia or New Zealand–a wealthy nation that depended on agricultural and natural resource exports for its prosperity. But then right-wing populism struck with Juan Peron in 1946 and that was the end of that. It's been almost 100 years of Trumpist-like economic policies and Argentina is totally in a giant hole of political instability and rampant corruption. Can't wait for the U.S. to be dragged down to Argentina's level as Trumpism's influence continues to grow…

It's always a problem if you're GDP and GDP p/c are high and people consider you a potential great power but it's literally all based on agricultural exports to hungry, booming industrial powers who have agriculture of their own and more protected sources and who then suffer a war or other decline in purchasing power, and on investment capital from those same now broke industrial powers. National Wealth as fairy dust, more so than is true for all nations. Soon enough we'll find out that specializing in services or being a trade entrepot or being focused on tourism have similar problems.
