  1. I remember visiting Argentina about 30 years ago and meeting an elderly Argentinian who looked back nostalgically to the pre Peron days when Argentina felt much better off. Precisely the period when the graphs diverge.

  2. Argentina received the lion’s share of Britain’s overseas investments until the start of WW2 when the majority were liquidated to pay for American arms. Could the loss of British economic influence have had an adverse effect and put Argentina into the same boat as Brazil for example – resource rich but massively underperforming?
