Libertarian economist Javier Milei emerged the overwhelming victor in Sunday’s Argentine presidential elections, defeating his Peronist rival and Economy Minister Sergio Massa by 11% of the vote. Milei campaigned for economic shock therapy to reform Argentina’s beleaguered economy - what does this bode for the country’s policy direction? We discuss the election outcome with political scientist Dr. Tracy Fenwick of the Australian National University.
