On checking out the inversion Peru site I found this very interesting post.

It contains lots of interesting info about where the company is headed.
Argentina has always known that ex-President Carlos Menem stuffed his pockets while in the top job. Now, it seems, there might be some documentary evidence. Der Spiegel is reporting that Siemens paid him a U$16m bribe (along with other multimillion dollars gifts to key memebers of his government). Here's Critica Digital with the lowdown.
Despite the image President Twobreakfasts tries to project to the outside world (and the inflation figures that are massaged to a level nearly Argentine) Peru is obsessed by its rising inflation. This Schuldt post offers you 100 links (not joking) to inflation articles written by field experts in its national press so far this year.
