Buenos Aires is the capital, and largest city, of Argentina, currently the second-largest metropolitan area in South America, after São Paulo. Buenos Aires is the financial, industrial, commercial, and cultural hub of Argentina. Its port is one of the busiest in South America; navigable rivers by way of the Rio de la Plata connect the port to north-east Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay. As a result it serves as the distribution hub for a vast area of the south-eastern region of the continent. Tax collection related to the port has caused many political problems in the past.Argentina is in Southern South America, bordering the South Atlantic Ocean, between Chile and Uruguay. Mostly temperate; arid in southeast; sub Antarctic in southwest. Rich plains of the Pampas in northern half, flat to rolling plateau of Patagonia in south, rugged Andes along western border.The official language is Spanish. English and Italian (Italians are the single largest immigrant group) are widely spoken in business circles in the capital Buenos Aires, though efforts to speak some Spanish are appreciated. Otherwise English is generally spoken only in centers catering to tourists. The main religion is Christianity.The economy of Argentina benefits from rich natural resources, a highly literate population, an export-oriented agricultural sector and a diversified industrial base. Historically, however, Argentina's economic performance has been very uneven, in which high economic growth alternated with severe recessions, particularly during the late twentieth century. Early in the twentieth century it was one of the richest countries in the world, though it is now an upper-middle income country.The population in Buenos Aires is 2.9 Mil (2014 est.), while the inflation rate is 10.9% (2014 est.).
