On 14 February 2021, Carlos Saúl Menem, who was President of Argentina for two terms, passed away at the age of 90.

We are talking about one of the most controversial figures in Argentine politics. There is no middle ground, depending on who you talk to either elevates him to the stars or demonizes him. Menem was a politician to the core, one of those social leaders who likes to be surrounded by famous people, such as sportsmen, artists and models, and who also has no qualms about saying one thing and then doing the opposite.

However, the truth is that his period in the Casa Rosada was a sort of hiatus in what has been the usual trend in Argentine politics. Under the governments of Carlos Menem, changes came at full speed and for a time Argentina became one of the most fashionable countries in the world. However, things did not end well.

What effect did Menem have on Argentina? How did he manage to make positive international headlines. Why did it all go downhill? In this video we give you all the details about one of the most fascinating political periods in Argentina’s history.
