Mentioned: , , , , , ,

With its Olympic soccer win over Brazil, Argentina has scored the latest victory in a longstanding rivalry. Brazilians are surely suffering in their defeat. But on the economic front, at least, we expect they will yet emerge the winners.

In this piece, we'll highlight some of those firms that stand to benefit (or suffer) from these countries' fast-diverging economic paths.
