An Overview of the Argentine Financial Crisis - The financial crisis in Argentina during the late 1990s and early 2000s resulted in severe issues with foreign debt, inflation, unemployment, and political turmoil for the country. Argentina not only suffered a currency crisis, but also suffered a political crisis.

While other issues related to this financial crisis such as the impact on the lives of the Argentinean population or the political turmoil and corruption are certainly worthy of discussion, this paper will focus on the currency crisis and the Argentinean government’s role in this economic catastrophe, primarily discussing the relative fiscal policies and external shocks that led up to the crisis in 2001, followed by a brief examination of the governmental reaction and recovery efforts....   [tags: Economy, Currency Crisis] 1858 words
