I'm thinking with oilfield running dry worldwide and Argentina seems to be used to the crisis every now and then. Will the collapse eventually lead to mini states and pave the way for BA being the next venice of our century?
It would be more than the old world european type but a global one with many cultures.Why do I think it can happen to BA,cause the city has the potential to form an alternative currency due to distrust of their central bank..the people are living in a high trust society which clustered around family and friends like Italy..also the reason why it cannot adopt many policies which low trust societies like north america is able to.
Argentina do not have a suburban culture like the americans and this will become more of an advantage in peak oil...all this points to a future mini state like BA sprouting up..any native or expats opinions on this transformation?

The city of BA may have (and had in the past) some conflicts with other power regions such as the province of BA. But this is a stretch in my view as it does not need to isolate itself this way.
Where does the notion of distrusting the central bank comes from? I am curious. Also, since you mention Italy and the italian heritage don't forget that Sicily never became a nation. Just like over there, argentines solve their differences in a different, more rudimentary way.
