whatever became of the idea proposed by the so-called Group of 8 - Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Panama - for a Marshall Plan for Latin America? (may I should ask about whereabouts of the Group itself, Panama was suspended after Noriega deposed Delvalle in 1988 and the remaining seven began calling themselves the "Rio Group")

post-generals Argentine presidents Raul Alfonsin (Radical Party) and Carlo Menem (Peronist Party) were big promoters of above idea...what they received, however, were absurd and offensive IMF measures that caused deep economic crises in the country...Michael Hoover
