Free-market fundamentalist Javier Milei won Argentina’s presidential election with 55.69% of the vote last week, promising to bring “drastic changes” to tackle the “tragic reality” of soaring inflation and widespread poverty facing the country.

With an inflation rate of over 120%, volatility of the Argentine peso, and an increasing unemployment rate, Milei’s victory has been seen by political pundits as a rejection of the left-leaning politics that has dominated the nation over recent decades.
