  Argentina is megacephaly. This is not necessarily a terminal disease. France, for instance, is as well. And France has been one of the leading cultures and economies in the world. The weight of Paris or Buenos Aires in the national context is too large. A more equilibrate system might be more efficient apart from more equitable.
