Hyperinflation drives people crazy

The ex-president Jose Mujica He referred to the arrival to the Presidency of Javier Milei in Argentina and considered that “the hyperinflation drives people crazy”, pointing out that the problem with prices was what drove the libertarian phenomenon.

Mujica, who had already been critical of the Argentine head of state, questioned the ways of Milei during an interview with Reuters, recalling that “he got into a fight with Gustavo Petro and Gabriel Boric”, the presidents of Colombia and Chile, and then pointed out: “Then he sent him a letter and everything, but Lula He never answered him.”

The former president had already questioned Milei, describing him as “a fanatical ideologue”, who has “an almost messianic vision” and anticipating that “he is going to destroy everything institutionally.”

On the young leftist leaders of the region, such as Boric and Petro, He said, “I tried to help them as much as I could.” However, he clarified: “We cannot pretend to agree on everything. We have to agree with what there is, not with what we like.”
