303: Javier Milei’s Presidency: The Real Impact On Freedom In Argentina – Skot Sheller

303: Javier Milei's Presidency: The Real Impact On Freedom In Argentina - Skot Sheller

Javier Milei has been the talk of freedom-oriented expat circles since the libertarian firebrand was elected president of Argentina last year. Today, I am joined by Skot Sheller, who has been following Milei’s work for years and is himself pursuing Argentinian citizenship. Enjoy today’s discussion as Skot and I look at what Javier Milei has really accomplished so far, the opposition he faces from within Argentina, and the broader implications for freedom across Latin America and the world.



  • Discover how Skot first became fascinated not just with Argentina but with its history and politics. 
  • How did Argentina wind up with an anarcho-capitalist as President after decades of socialism? Skot lays out how Milei maneuvered his way into the Presidency. 
  • Learn how the black market completely managed the exchange of dollars and pesos in Argentina when the government proved unreliable. 
  • Uncover the reasons why, despite concerns about de-dollarization, the dollar is still seen as a safe haven compared to many Latin American currencies. 
  • Can Javier Milei really go after the Argentinian central bank? Skot breaks down the odds that he can deliver on his intentions to close the central bank entirely.
  • Find out what departments Milei was able to cut immediately – you won’t believe some of the “Ministries” that the Argentine government was funding!
  • Hear Skot break down the challenges Milei faces from within his own government – and why it’s not inconceivable that he could even be impeached. 
  • Would I recommend Argentina as a Plan-B location due to Milei’s Presidency? Hear what I’m telling my clients who have been asking me about it. 
  • Should people be concerned that Milei has spoken at the World Economic Forum? Skot and I discuss the circumstances and content of his WEF speeches.
  • An Argentinian alliance with NATO? Skot and I look beyond the headlines to decipher what this really means.

It was great speaking to Skot and learning about Javier Milei from someone who had followed his work since well before he skyrocketed to the peak of Argentinian politics. While I have reservations about Argentina as a Plan-B recommendation, I can’t deny that the political situation is an interesting one, and it will certainly be a country to keep an eye on as the political situation unfolds.
