Protectionism is another remedy for our economical sickness but I don't see it as central. Our government cannot print US$ and our current account balance is already in minus 80 b$ per year, partially offset by foreingn investment and speculative capital.
We are lacking real leadership on what kind of Nation we want to be.
Like one more modern western country or like another LA Bolivar Nation exporting commodities and living as another parasite of China growth.
Looks like we made our choice last Sunday.
