Radical turn: What's populist Javier Milei's plan for Argentina?
How bad off is the country this time? Argentina once again finds itself in the throes of hyperinflation and a crippling debt crisis that's wiped out savings. Will government services be gutted in the name of reform? What is the alternative?
Or – with no path to a majority in parliament – will Milei turn to the conspiracy theories and culture wars he peddled on the campaign trail? More broadly, with the likes of Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro and Elon Musk rushing to congratulate Milei, what does this South American election say about what politics will look like in 2024?
