Gallup has an interesting poll on perceived barriers to business in Latin America, where the belief that paperwork is too onerous is higher than anywhere else in the world. What I find particularly notable is that within Latin America this does not correlate to ideology. For example, Venezuela ranks very high, second only to Uruguay in positive terms of whether governments make paperwork and permits easy enough. Venezuelans also feel very confident that their government will allow them to make a lot of money. Argentines, meanwhile, have almost no such confidence at all.
Strangely, though, the Gallup report comes to the following illogical conclusion:
In Latin America, the relatively high "no" percentages may reflect a broad set of issues that the public may perceive as tension between government and private businesses, including the wave of company nationalizations, tougher labor regulations, and even business confiscations in recent years.
But this makes no sense. If it were true, then Mexico and Venezuela should be inverted.
