Remaking the Argentine Economy
While the economies of many Latin American and Asian countries have soared in the past two decades, Argentina -- a rich country in many ways -- has had great difficulty in fulfilling its economic potential. Remaking the Argentine Economy examines the historical reasons behind Argentina's disappointing economic performance since World War II, as well as recent encouraging changes that have taken place in Argentina's economy. According to de la Balze, Argentina's failure to thrive economically is a case of a relative modern country pursuing misguided economic strategies and its resulting inability to cope with changes in the international environment. Argentina's turbulent and unstable political system has also hampered its economic development. But the last few years have given rise to a more optimistic scenario: stringent economic reforms and profound political changes have begun to turn the economy around. De la Balze provides a concise, thorough exploration of all facets of Argentina's postwar economy and singles out the key issues that Argentina must face to ensure the success of the political and economic reforms underway. Remaking the Argentine Economy provides a valuable case study of one country's attempt to re-engineer its economic viability in today's world.
