Argentina continues as one of the economic tragedies of the 20th century. Now the 21st too. In 1900 they were the 3rd wealthiest country in the world. Not today. There is an old joke about how when God made the earth, angels came to him and said "God, this is not fair. You have given this country such beauty and natural resources beyond what you have given others, this is not fair." God turned to the angels and said, "just wait, I am going to put Argentines there."

That is what makes economies grow.
