Uruguay is a real surprise! I thought they had it good, and also thought that Argentina had recovered already a long ago... Interesting quiz!

Thanks. Argentina has an inflation rate over 20%, nowhere near #1's 490%. #2 and #4 are on the list more for their high unemployment rates. Uruguay is split with about 8% each.
