Debating Government Takeovers

Originally Published on: La Nación

This viz by La Nacion tracks the stock of Argentine oil company YPF, a subsidiary of Spanish Repsol oil giant. YPF's stock has plummeted 24% in February, seemingly due to the news of that the Argentine government would takeover YPF due to a lack of investment. Debate was fierce, with some people discussing the merit of the move, whether or not it mattered since YPF was just a subsidiary of a Spanish company, and more.
