Argentina introduces wealth tax for COVID-19 relief


Argentina is turning to its super rich to help people struggling to make ends meet because of COVID-19.
The Senate has approved a bill to tax people with assets worth more than $2.5m, with hopes of raising more than $3bn.
But opponents say it will prevent future investment and slow down the country’s economic recovery.
