Trump walks off leaving Macri standing alone

Argentina is amazing. For a country that economically and politically does not matter on the world stage, it punches far above its weight in headline capture. Whether its the corrupt former presidenta, the debt default battle that raged in the NY Appeals court for years, the Nisman affair, the G20 hosting, the peso devaluation or the botched attempt to impress the world through a Superclassico futbol match, Argentina captures way more attention than is merited, either politically or economically. You gotta love that ability to attract the spotlight. :)

As an example, Australia's economy is 4 times bigger than Argentina's. Yet how often do we read headlines about Australia compared to Argentina?

Plenty of headlines here in Bangkok about Australia. It depends on where you live. But yeah, Argentina's tendency towards the lurid is newsworthy.

Macri does not matter. Argentina does not matter. And probably the G20 does not matter either. I suppose Trump had to attend out of courtesy. The G20 is just a waste of time and money. And holding it in BsAs, which is so out of the way for most attendees ....

I don't think Argentina gets a lot of publicity. Few people in the US know anything about the country. They may know a slightly more in Britain because of the Falklands War or Italy where there is some consciousness of Italian immigration abroad. In general though Argentina really doesn't matter to the world. Most people don't know the difference between Argentina and the rest of Latin America.
