Multiple projections show a Sebastián Piñera win. But we can wait and make sure he's not a Chilean Thomas Dewey.

Brazil and Argentina may be the next two to move right.
I'm not a Chavez fan, but I was wondering if you could show me a quote from either him or Morales in which they said that they opposed economic growth under any circumstances.As for Brazil, your comment is bizarre: Brazil's economy showed growth starting the second quarter of last year.

As for Brazil, your comment is bizarre: Brazil's economy showed growth starting the second quarter of last year.His comment with regard to Bolivia was quite bizarre, too. Bolivia's economy grew three percent in 2009, which is not shabby at all, given the circumstances.
Redefining GDP (or more accurately replacing it) as a key economic indicator is an idea with some support around the world. It is well known that GDP fails to accurately capture what it purports to.
