Compensation For A Trade War: Argentina’s Financial Crisis Creates An Opportunity For China

There’s a one-word answer to why the South American nation is bucking the trend: China. Argentina is in the grips of a financial crisis that has all but locked it out of credit markets and paralyzed investment.
