…in reverse order:
Third Place: “Argentina mining: The false dawn“. The good news form last week is that the Macri government managed to cut a deal with the opposition and one part of it was to stop the reinstatement of the export tax on mining. The bad news is that the whole central government plan for a Federal Mining Agreement is now falling apart. Chubut is the test case.
Second Place: “The Odebrecht/Braskem case sending shockwaves through Latin America political circles“. It’s going to be mighty interesting to see whether establishment politicos from countries all over the LatAm region managed to keep the lid on this story and stop names of people who took the bribes from becoming public knowledge.
First Place: “The Clive wants to clean up his (online) image“. All hail The Clive.
