Illustration for a leading article (in Spanish) about the present state of the two blocks. While the South American one (Argentina’s Macri and Brazil’s Rousseff in the bottom line) try to overcome falling prices of commodities that are their main exports, they don’t look at their European counterpart as a model. The European Union has […]
