Argentina's Economy Implodes, Internet Swoons For Hunky Finance Minister
His name is Axel Kicillof, but they call him "Kicilove."
BUENOS AIRES — Creditors may find him infuriating, but teenaged girls seem to adore Argentina's youthful Finance Minister Axel Kicillof. Or Kicilove, the "Minister of Love," as one Twitter user called him.
The account shows the minister taking a "selfie" with delighted female fans, a picture that caused a modest furore on the Internet, though it seems that those loving (and liking) the photo are supporters of President Cristina Kirchner, who appointed Kicillof to his post last November.

Argentina is currently in a tug of war with foreign creditors, which it has denounced as "vultures" and speculators. But there he is, looking happy and handsome as ever even amid talk of the nation defaulting on its debt and the plummeting value of the Argentine peso.
