Neither in the economy nor in politics: a run on the dollar, escalating inflation and successive and permanent ministerial tremors. An unintended moment of truth. Massa, a great seller of "future power" (a fine concept of the Argentine writer Martín Rodríguez), also had his definitive moment. From this scenario he will emerge either victorious or ejected by the dynamics of a crisis that is much more structural than what, as an old tactician, he himself thinks.
It is more than likely that, even in a scenario of truce or relative intra-Peronist pax in the coming days, the exercise of the policies that he intends to carry out will find resistance in the south africa phone number list Kirchnerist universe. Within hours of his appointment, the social leader Juan Grabois -close to Pope Francis- was already demanding him in publicthe sanction of a universal basic salary that is impossible to implement in the financial context of Argentina today. Massismo was at the time an attempt to "kill the boss" to "save" Peronism.
As in a Greek tragedy, will this scenario be doomed to repeat itself? Neither Daniel Scioli, nor Alberto Fernández, nor any other strong leader could coexist, without disintegrating, with the leadership of Cristina . "Leading would imply breaking up with Cristina and I'm not going to do it," said President Alberto Fernández in a final and final confession, because he expresses that in Argentina you can only lead by facing her . Will the Massista "appeasement" work this time? Jorge Luis Borges wrote that "any destination, however long and complicated it may be, actually consists of a single moment: the moment in which man knows who he is forever." For Sergio Massa, that moment has finally arrived.
