A real political and social agreement

The challenge of summarizing the last two centuries and projecting Argentina to the future.

It is interesting, or perhaps disturbing, the idea that it is possible to reach political agreements that can bring Argentina out of its decline without having reached prior social consensus.

We Argentines live in the 21st century, discuss the 20th century and yearn for what we were in the 19th century. This is how confused and divided our society is, while political leadership merely reflects those differences government after government. In that connection, the convening of a “political agreement” by the President < a href =” https://www.serargentino.com/todo-sobre-argentina/mauricio-macri-la-puta-que-te-pario "target = “_blank” rel = “noreferrer noopener” aria-label = "We Argentines live in the 21st century, discuss the 20th century and yearn for what we were in the 19th century.

The analysis of the ten points proposed by the government leaves no doubt that it is aimed at reassuring international actors while postponing the challenge of plotting a path of national development that requires more complex and in-depth discussions.

At first glance, some of the points raised appear so obvious that it is incomprehensible that they are under discussion. However, the timing chosen by the government to convene an agreement and the way in which the points are expressed suggest that in the < a href =” https://www.serargentino.com/todo-sobre-argentina/historia/uno-de-los-personajes-mas-queridos-que-ha-pasado-por-la-casa-rosada "target = “_blank” rel = “noreferrer noopener” aria-label = "At first glance some of the points raised seem so obvious that it is incomprehensible that they are under discussion.

However, the points of this call do not reflect the discussions that take place in society. Let us think, in a somewhat provocative way, of our “glorious Argentina”.

When we debate the economy and want to contrast the current bad moment some people will end up referring to the indicators of “glorious Argentina”, that of the late nineteenth century, which was ruled by an aristocracy that turned Buenos Aires into the Paris of South America, an Argentina that for the sake of the people restricted political rights. Argentina had a clear insertion in the international economic system and also accompanied the political processes of consolidation of the national states of its time.

On the contrary, surely for other people, the arrival of the twentieth century implies the effective access of the people to power, marking a historical fact when the real process of national development began. Now the economy will be at the service of the nation and the welfare of its people, no longer the elites.
