Argentina is in deep economic trouble. We should be willing to help.

THE RISE of a reformist, pro-democracy government in Argentina three years ago was one of the most positive political developments in a region plagued by dangerous political decay in places such as Venezuela, Brazil and Nicaragua. President Mauricio Macri represented a victory for forces in his country that wanted to put prosperity, honest government and integration with the democratic capitalist West ahead of the left-wing populist nationalism of his pro-Venezuelan predecessor, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, whose years of misrule had brought the country to financial crisis.
