Today in European austerity: Spanish workers emigrating to Argentina

Aljazeera English reports on a new trend in Europe's struggling workers turn to Argentina 04/27/20122:



Young workers migrating from a country (Spain) that's practicing full-on neoliberal economics and Angela Merkel's austerity policies to a country that figured out after their bond and currency crisis a decade ago that neoliberal/Washington Consensus/Free Market Dogma policies just weren't working for them.

There's a lesson there somewhere.

Defend the bad against the worse."
