Argentina's 48% Stock Rout Second-Biggest in Past 70 Years

"The surprise outcome in Argentina’s primary vote roiled the nation’s financial markets, sending the S&P Merval Index plunging 48% in dollar terms.

That marked the second-biggest one-day rout on any of the 94 stock exchanges tracked by Bloomberg going back to 1950. Sri Lanka’s bourse tumbled more than 60% in June 1989 as the nation was engulfed in a civil war."

With rightwingers in Argentina, you get thousands of civilians thrown out of airplanes.

Why is it capital flows to right wing nationalists like President Trump and flees from left wing nationalists like Alberto Fernández?

Is it high taxes or the fear of Venezuelan style socialism?

He isn't even elected yet and Argentinians are already dumping their peso's and hoarding dollars.

One is the US, where hiring and stock market growth have slowed from Trump's left-leaning predecessor, the other is one of the biggest serial defaulters in history.

Detective TwoDogs has deduced that capitalists don't like anti-capitalists.

Clinton did a good job with the economy in my view. Welfare reform, reduced defense spending, balanced budgets, etc.

I did think that people were thrown from planes during the anti-democratic, very right wing Pinochet capitalist regime in Chile?

They must have done it also in capitalist Argentina also, if we are to believe Two Dogs!!

Again it proves that people of the very right, or left are no friends of democracy.

Yes, that's also true, Felix. He was both dealt a good hand, and played it well.

I wish I could draw decent cartoons, so I could respond with one of a nightmarish varmint dystopia.

Capital fled the economy in early 2008 under GW Bush. Capital started flowing back into the economy as the US started emerging form the 2008-09 recession

The two parties could compromise back in those days.

Yes Godjira, Tip O'Neil was a very good example of that.

Perhaps he would felt out of place in Trump's version of America.
