Why would immigrants from Spain and Italy come to Argentina?

Most Argentinians are of European ancestry, chiefly Italian and Spain. Back then, immigrants from Spain and Italy came to Argentina because Argentina has been primarily a country of immigration for most of its history. It attracted large numbers of people from Europe, Spain, and Italy, after the defeat of Spain conquering the people of Argentina. The largest wave of immigration occurred in the late 1800's as the result of government plan to encourage European settlement.

What is the average climate and weather of Argentina year round?

Argentina's climate is mild. The north has the highest temperature, and the south has the lowest. Argentina's seasons are opposite from the Northern Hemisphere (U.S.A.). Summer lasts from late December to late March, and winter from late June to late September. January temperatures average about 80 degrees in the north and 60 degrees in the far south. Average July temperatures range from 60 degrees in the north and 40 degrees in the far south.

Why does Argentina's economy depend heavily on farming and ranching?

Argentina's economy depends heavily on farming and ranching because agriculture is very important to Argentina's economy. Farmers farm and ranch all kinds of crops, especially the major crops such as; beef, sugarcane, wheat, soybeans, and corn. Also, gauchos are Argentina's national symbol, so Argentina depends on gauchos to ranch on large estancias and farm all kinds of crops for food and vegetation for the economy.

How was Argentina affected when Argentina's leaders governed poorly?

When Argentina's leaders governed poorly, the economy suffered and faced many dangers. Then, the military took over. One of those military leaders, Juan Peron, became a dictator in the late 1940's. With his wife, Eva, Peron tried to improve the economy and give more help to workers. The press made people mad about Juan Peron's freedom of speech and people became unhappy. In 1955, a revolt drove Peron from power, and democracy returned.
