Poor Pepe – Rich Uruguay

Uruguay’s Jose Mujica – ‘the poorest president in the world’

Even if he didn’t have headlines like these, Pepe Mujica would be one of those politicians that people remember. Homely not studly, steady and sturdy, Mujica is a good metaphor for his country. A place with aged sophistication, a no-nonsense approach to business and the economy, and no airs to being anything more than the prosperous, understated place that it is.
