According to that last Argentine publication, the Chileans affected by plagiarism are Verónica Mies and Raimundo Soto, authors of the work “Demand for money: Theory, evidence, results”, published in 2000.

According to that medium, in the Argentine president’s book there are about 10 verbatim paragraphs from the work of both professors associated with the Pontifical Catholic University.

Milei would also have copied fragments of a text written by Argentine members of the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (Conicet).

The Chilean newspaper Meganoticias recalls that plagiarism in both countries is a violation of the Intellectual Property law and the trans-Andean Penal Code establishes penalties from one to six months in prison for those who commit this crime.

Meanwhile, the digital site El Ciudadano also echoes this complaint in an article titled: Milei, the master of copy paste.

According to the media, this is not the first case of plagiarism accusation against Milei, and remember that in 2022 it was revealed that his book Pandenomics contained verbatim copies of six different authors, one of whom filed a complaint against him.

A year earlier, the site Medium brought to light that several of its publications had copied paragraphs and were exact replicas of works by neoliberal authors such as Henry Hazlitt, Ludwig Von Mises, Friederick Hayek or Murray Rothbard.
