The New Gusanos

Just a caveat to an otherwise good picture.

In the case of Argentina or Ecuador, where neoliberal monetarism is
already getting to its nightmarish end result, many of the migrants
are not "gusanos" in the political sense. They are simply desperate
people, rich enough to get out of this hell, and poor enough not to
be able to become members of the top layers.

Thus, as Camila, a sociologist who works with me, uses to sadly say,
"Our parents came here from Europe, we are remaining here, and our
children bounce back".
