A Recovery Plan for Argentina

Argentina's president, Eduardo Duhalde, has been making impassioned pleas for international support to rebuild his country. Argentina needs and deserves such help, and the foundations for economic success-skills (a literate and well-educated population) and institutions (a federal constitutional democracy)-have been in place for a long time. But Mr Duhalde has yet to specify what must be done to take advantage of Argentina' favorable endowments.
