Argentina's partial renationalization of its oil company, Yacimientos Petroliferos Fiscales (YPF), has triggered a veritable frenzy of anti-Argentine sentiment. Ironically, this has been more pronounced in the British and American media than in the Spanish one, though it is a Spanish company, Repsol, that is affected. The Washington Post has gone so far as to suggest that Argentina should be expelled from the G20, the “steering committee of the world economy.” The Economist takes this one step further, proposing even more radical measures, like making it difficult for Argentines to travel abroad (a ban on all Argentine passports by the UN? Instant arrest by Interpol of any Argentine citizen found beyond the border?).
