H.L. liked this: The Freest Place in the World. JWR's Comment: Don't assume that economic freedom equates to full liberties in all other aspects of life. Argentina is a MerCoSur (Mercado Común del Sur) treaty signatory, and hence (like all the others) they are gradually clamping down firearms ownership under a "harmonization" accord. (Harmonization is statist-speak for: "Let's equally oppress all of our subjects, to the lowest common denominator.") Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela are full MerCoSur members, and Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru are associate members. Just as with gun rights, I suspect that banking privacy will also continue to erode in all of the MerCoSur countries. Don't consider moving offshore until you've done all your homework!
