Domingo Cavallo praised Javier Milei: “I see him very well”

Former Minister of Economy of Argentina Domingo Cavallo praised this Tuesday the first candidate for deputy of “La Libertad Avanza” in the city of Buenos Aires, Javier Milei, considering that the ideas he proclaims “are the correct ones”.

“I see it very well” ,Cavallo responded when asked on the TN channel, adding: “Not because of his style, which can obviously be a bit objectionable, but the ideas he proclaims are the correct ideas “.

In that sense, Cavallo pointed out that the mediatic economist can collaborate for the recovery of the country from the Congress. “Although he is attacking all what he calls the political caste, when he is in Congress, and there is a government that wants to implement good policies, that wants to organize the Argentine economy well, and relate well to the world I think he will help”, He opined.

Also, Cavallo pointed out that the performance of the libertarian candidate “is something positive for Argentine politics.” The former official, who resides in the United States, said that the Milei phenomenon shows “that the most humble sectors, even the people who live in the villas or in the marginal neighborhoods, are no longer exclusive clients of the extreme left, and of the Marxist or neo-Marxist discourse, but rather they have begun to warn about the value of freedom ”.

For Cavallo, lthe need to “achieve stability ” is what unites all those who think in more liberal terms,in such a way as to leave behind the “stagflation” that the country has been going through, he said, since 2011. “It cannot be that we live with chronic inflation, much less with inflation that makes investment and growth difficult, and that is normally associated with recession, or stagnation ”, he stated.

Cavallo, who defined himself as “liberal” , nevertheless denied the label of ” neoliberalism ” that was consolidated in the 1990s. He argued that this classification is part of “stories that are not adequate” and pointed out that “some exaggerate a bit” when expressing that “they are going to a kind of liberal utopia.”

In his view, a liberal person is “someone who values ​​freedom in general, respect for the rules, but for the rules conducive to the common good, and of course, respect for property rights.”

In any case, Cavallo argued that the growing adherence that liberalism aroused in this election will have an impact in the coming years. “Liberals and libertarians are going to influence the thinking and action of the next government that takes office in 2023, and that is going to be very healthy.”, He pointed out.
