Take physic, pomp

Chart of the day is…

…Bolivian GDP growth, 2004 to date, with thanks to EF for the datadump:

This is the thing that really pisses off the North about Evo’s Bolivia; it’s doing really well economically. Even that drop to 3.4% in Lehman-shadowed 2009 was a strong result, in fact it was the best GDP growth in The Americas that year. And before you start with your northern prejudiced nonsense, inflation at 4.6% in 2012 is nicely under control, debt/GDP at 30% is stronger than anything you have up there and forex versus the USD has been strengthening non-stop since 2004. 
Run by me that “Oh the pinko commie lefties can’t run an economy” thing again, willyaz?
