Now is a Great Time to Invest in Latin American Mining

For centuries Latin American mining has captivated international investors. Tales of Birú, a magical gold-laden land that we now know as Peru, were enough to convince Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro to lead a risky expedition against the Incas. In the short-term the mission was an outstanding success with Pizarro ransoming captured Inca emperor Atahualpa for 13,000 pounds (lbs) of gold and twice as much silver. In today’s prices that is almost $3billion worth of gold though the silver…

Speculation vs. opportunism – a dangerous difference

The ability to be flexible and reactionary appeals to many would-be investors. They like the idea of identifying an opportunity and seizing it with gusto, certain it will pay handsomely. I agree there are advantages to being quick on your feet when locking down an opportunity, but this sort of transaction should trigger a moment of self-assessment. When making the choice on whether to purchase, ask yourself, “Am I a speculator or opportunist,” because the differences between the two are dramatic…

Argentina rejects reform?

After a crushing defeat for Macri in August’s primaries, most Argentines expect a win by the opposition left wing Peronists, who first came to power in 1946 under the populist general Juan Perón and, as the country’s dominant political force, who have overseen much of Argentina’s deterioration during the past half-century from its covered position as one of the richest in the world earlier that century. Nowhere is this more evident than in Villa 31 in Buenos Aires, which, situated around…

Lithium battery dreams get a ​rude awakening in South America due to nervous​ investors

Lithium refining and battery-assembling facilities could help kickstart economies. But so far, public and private initiatives in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil and Chile have failed to deliver even a single lithium cell factory. And none are set to be built through 2025.

Lithium refining and…

Buenos Aires Classic Styled Racecourse

It was one of the first places in Argentina where all the social classes were mixed together. Towards the end of the 19th century, horse racing was one of the main collective attractions of the inhabitants of the City of Buenos Aires.

Latam Investor – Argentines Macri Miracle Ends in Default

When Mauricio Macri was elected in 2015 it seemed to herald a new era for Argentina. Now it looks like being more of the same. In August Buenos Aires announced that it would reprofile its debt. In effect it’s another default, with investors having to take a write down for having lent to the Argentine government for the fourth time in the last 30 years and the ninth time since independence from Spain. It’s a sad culmination to a presidency that began with such hope. When Macri came to power his early…

Argentina economy needs Intensive Care to recover

Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri knew that he had inherited a sick economy when he took office in 2015 but failed to put in place the medicine. As a result, the country now has no choice but to face up to a period of painful structural adjustment. Imagine a man who has lived too extravagantly and eventually must go to the doctor for treatment of an acute disease, along with several other chronic conditions. The doctor prescribes a ten-day course of antibiotics, and advises his patient to start taking…

In Argentina, the effect of a surprising Mid Term Election result plus its resulting chaos, devaluation and money restrictions caused farmland prices to drop overnight.

comprar Campos Argentinos
The results of the Mid Term elections, which made the likely winner to lead Argentina in 2020 Alberto Fernández caused a collapse in farmers and investors confidence. Due to farmers perception of him being a patsy to the hated Christina Kirchner ( she appointed Fernandez ) who ruled Argentina for an earlier decade, they see another lost decade in front of them and a race to the bottom to join Venezuela’s cruel dictatorship.
