The "cone" countries of southern South America ? Argentina, Chile, Uruguay ? aren`t doing too badly, in an upper-tier-Third-World kind of way: 2011 per capita GDP $17.7K, $17.4K, $15.3K. For sure you won `t go hungry in any of them: good farm land (all right, Chile not so much), long sea coasts (all right, Uruguay not so much . . . but look, they can share).
I should have kept my mouth shut. The secret`s leaking out. Soon the riff-raff will all be heading down there. My reply to the reader who emailed me that link was: "Shhhh!"
(And to Dan Prescher`s puzzlement over the odd prevalence of left-handedness in Uruguay ? why, it`s the southern hemisphere, isn`t it? Coriolis effect, see?)
