Wealth in Peru

When I visited Peru, I arrived the day after the election (some months ago.) Sadly, the country voted to increase the level of poverty by choosing a leader devoted to destroying those who create wealth. The day the election results were announced, the stock market closed early after it fell 20% . My business associates were unhappy about the result and what it promised for the future.

It is a shame, because about 100 years ago, Latin America was experiencing a Golden Age of prosperity.
