WEF Summit: Argentina’s Milei praises free markets, slams socialism at Davos


Argentina’s libertarian President Javier Milei praised free markets and slammed socialism at Davos on Wednesday, during the first overseas tour for the self-proclaimed ‘anarcho-capitalist’ who is battling to fix a major economic crisis at home.

During his speech, Milei focused on the role of the state across a wide range of activities, which he said amounted to levers of control rather than allowing citizens the freedom to prosper through their efforts.

The trip marks a test for right-wing Milei, a relative political newcomer who took office last month after a rapid ascent from acid-tongued economist and TV pundit to the presidency. He is keen to win backing for his economic ideas, which include shutting the central bank and adopting the dollar.

Milei surprised passengers aboard a commercial flight en route to Davos taking selfies and telling reporters he aimed to “seed ideas of freedom in a forum that is contaminated by the 2030 socialist agenda.”
