Argentina's challenge - doing it differently

アルゼンチンの挑戦

 


Is your business going bust?
Then kick out the bosses and run it yourselves!
Are the big beasts of international finance wiping the floor with your economy?
Tell them to take a running jump!
Argentina has been where some Western economies are now - broke and on its knees.
But its people devised bold and creative ways to deal with their problems - solutions that persist to this day.
The challenges have not gone away, there is still a lot to do, and the reality is far from perfect.
But there have been some major victories - especially in the area of jobs, quality of life and civil liberties. From being one of Latin America's cruellest military states the country has become a human rights pioneer.
Next month's issue takes you to the complex land of the tango, where frustration and inspiration continue to do a fiery pas de deux.


会社がつぶれそうだって?

もしそうなら上司を追い出して、自分たちの手で経営しよう!

国際金融機関という巨大なけだものがあなたの国で好き勝手をしている?

もしそうなら出ていくように言おう!

現在欧米経済の前に破産してひざまずいている状態のアルゼンチン。

しかし人々は、大胆で創造的なやり方で問題に取り組み、その解決策は今日も粘り強く続いている。

課題は残り、やることは多く、現実はとても完璧とは言えない状況だ。

しかし、特に仕事、生活の質、市民的自由で大きな勝利を収めている。かつてはラテンアメリカで最も残虐な軍事政権のひとつが支配していたこの国は、人権に配慮した国の先駆けとなった。

来月のNIでは、挫折とひらめきが情熱的なペアダンスを踊る複雑なタンゴの国の現在を紹介する。
