Macri: Populist Movements Like Spain's Podemos Frustrate, Damage the Future

BUENOS AIRES - Populist movements such as Spain's left-wing Podemos party generate unrealistice expectations that lead to frustration, anger and damage the future according to the President of Argentina.

Mauricio Macri made the statements during an exclusive interview with Agencia EFE in Buenos Aires and released Thursday.

"I am critical of these populist movements because we have already seen them governing in Argentina," Macri said when asked for his opinion on populist political movements, such as those that have recently emerged in Spain.

The Argentine president added such movements generated public frustration, anger and violence.

Populists harm the future by wasting savings on new infrastrucure in order to create an atmosphere of prosperity in the short term, Macri said, something that is no use "to anyone."

Furthermore, the president said that populism had brought shame on Argentina, as it does with any country "that falls into its hands."

For Macri, the future is built upon the hard work of the invidual; a gratifying personal effort that excites you and raises your self-esteem.

The Argentine president then turned his attention to Spain's inability to agree a coalition government after two inconclusive elections.

He said he did not understand why policy did not support the party with the largest share of the vote, as it had done historically.

He said it was inexplicable that they would delay a process of recuperation which was paramount for Spain.
