Argentina, from Peron to Macri

Argentina, from Peron to Macri

An Economic Chronicle

by Vito Tanzi
Publication Date: 19/06/2018
The first edition of this book, published in 2007, took the readers up to the period shortly after the debt default. After 2002, Argentina experienced some exciting and dramatic years and three different administrations. This new, updated, version describes, in simple terms, the main economic developments that took place in Argentina from 2002 until the end of 2017. It highlights the role that three different administrations played and the economic difficulties that remain.

"Argentina started the 20th Century as one of the richest ten country in the world. For a while its economic position in the world was comparable to that of, say, Germany today. It had a per capita income much higher than that of Japan and Italy and comparable to that of France. However, it ended the century on the eve of the largest default in history.

How did this dramatic change come about? In this unusual book, not based on library research but mostly on first hand and direct observations, the author takes the reader through a fascinating ride through time. The reader is introduced to the concept of fiscal cycles and the economic landscape of this fascinating country. The book is written in a style that will make it accessible and interesting to a general reader."

Praise for V. Tanzi's Book on Argentina.

Vito Tanzi has done it again. This book combines an intriguing prose, full of anecdotes and rich personal memoirs of Vito's many trips to Argentina, with serious economic analysis from a first class economist. ...Vito has come to understand very well Argentina's idiosyncrasy, institutions and the nature of the protracted fiscal problems, and explains how these have lead over time to major macroeconomic volatility, stagnation, and repeated crises. This book is particularly useful for the general public ...Domingo Cavallo, Former Finance Minister of Argentina

Vito Tanzi [book] is an invaluable document ... of the dramatic fall of Argentina as the leading Latin American economy. ...[show] .. the complicity of the IMF and of Argentine policy makers in the design of the disastrous fiscal policies that led to its huge debt default ... It should be required reading for policy makers and for all those who love that wonderful country ...Francisco Gil- Diaz, Former Finance Minister of Mexico

Explaining the reversals of economic fortunes in Argentina during the 20th is a challenge for economists and social observers in general. After being one of most dynamic and vibrant economies in the late 19th century and early 20th century, ..., the country started to travel a road of economic instability, stagnant and erratic growth and collapse of democracy. In this new and lucid book Vito Tanzi, drawing on 40 years of direct personal knowledge and field experience with Argentina, ....This book, ... is a must reading for anyone interested in understanding the Argentina of today and yesterday. Highly recommended.Andres Solimano . Regional Advisor UN-ECLAC. Former Country Director at the World Bank and Executive Director at the Inter-American Development Bank.
