The American Club of Buenos Aires presented its first virtual event with top-level speakers despite the mandatory closure by COVID-19 regulations. Through a digital platform, the Club maintains contact with its members and their relevance in the most important issues of the Argentine-American bilateral relationship.
Taking into account the context of the current pandemic situation that is being experienced worldwide, the American Club of Buenos Aires was forced to close its doors on March 14th for the first time in its 102-year history.
For this event, the board of directors has summoned the libertarian economist Javier Milei to speak. Mr. Milei will spoke about future possible economic paths for Argentina and what will be the relationship with the United States of America.
The BA in Economics Javier Milei has a long history defending a liberal economic model. His dissertation coincided with the presentation of his most recent investigative work on the pandemic that is plaguing the world and the different political, economic and social guidelines taken by the main world powers. His research includes an analysis of the path traced by Argentine politicians.
Milei showed the new vision of the Argentine model in front of the world, how to resume the path towards the export and internationalization of the local economy to generate foreign exchange and to be able to comply with the recent economic agreement. His full presentation is now available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsXcSibazH8&feature=youtu.be
The event was extended to the general public and was held on Wednesday, September the 2nd at 6:30 p.m. through the Zoom platform. All proceeds from ticket sales were to the employees of the American Club of Buenos Aires, who, since March 14, have been unable to work due to the physical closure of the Club.
