A constant feeling of crisis

"a constant feeling of crisis"

This month’s Inc. magazine printed a harsh but well-written feature story about Argentina. The author is Max Chafkin, a writer I like. Lately he’s been specializing in going to countries with extreme business climates, interviewing people, then writing a good article full of direct quotes from locals. In February he did Norway, a country which measures surprisingly healthy for business in spite of being highly socialized. Argentina is at the other end of the spectrum, historically and currently a rough environment for business. I found it really interesting to read stories about how people adapt. It’s a good article which I highly recommend to anyone interested in the subject — the Norway article is especially good, too.

I’m hoping Mr. Chafkin keeps going with this idea. I vote he goes next to India, Egypt, or Peru.
