You Don't Say...

Argentina's first couple deliver prosperity – for themselves

They were elected on the promise of delivering prosperity to Argentina, but statistics showing a stunning economic turnaround have come with a catch.

New figures show that since Nestor and Cristina Kirchner came to power in 2003, they have presided over a remarkable sixfold increase in their own wealth.

We would expect this from a friend of Hugo Chavez, but we increasingly see this more and more in the United States, where our founding fathers envisioned public service as just that: serving the public.

Why is it that the net worth of most politicians increases exponentially whilst in office? They make less then $200,000 per annum.

Term limits, anyone?

Interesting article...
