The limitation had begun in 1934, when then-President Agustín P. Justo promulgated the National Wine Law, which banned all commercialisation of wine from any region that was…

Interview with Nicolás Dujovne, Argentina’s Treasury Minister

It’s only by cutting public spending can we have room to also bring down both taxes and the fiscal deficit. So, we have committed to cutting consolidated public spending, which includes federal…
