Argentina’s Ex

In Culture, I'm a Newbie on October 28, 2010 at 11:24 am

Yesterday was a National Censos holiday, and during then it was announced the passing away of the country’s ex-president, Nestor Kirchner. Some people celebrated at this news, as he was known to be a harsh authoritarian, known for his policies against foreign investors. That is why everything except for wine and beef are expensive! There are many criticisms on the ‘Kirchner’ rule: nationalizing, corruption, galloping inflation, high taxation. Though in my opinion, no matter how much backtalk there are; it was him that managed to push this country forward after the 2001 economy crisis; it was him that stimulated the economy to favor welfare, increasing job opportunities and  encouraging public projects. I am hoping our National Censos Holiday will extend for another three days. Look at Brazil and Venezuela, they declared a three-day mourning. The least this country can do is to announce more holidays..in memory of her husband. 🙂
