One of Latin America's wealthiest countries, Argentina has long prided itself on having less of the acute poverty common across the region. But five years of strong economic growth have done little to dent poverty in the impoverished northern province of Chaco. In the region's slums, no one has much to say about the presidential race and residents are skeptical after seeing endless politicians on the campaign trail make reams of unfulfilled promises.
