This book examines the 2001 economic and political collapse of Argentina from an interdisciplinary and transcontinental perspective. It includes essays by historians, economists, sociologists, journalists, and architects from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and the United States, including among others, Joseph Stiglitz, Tulio Halperín Donghi, Néstor García Canclini, Roberto Frenkel, José Marcio Camargo and Andrés Solimano.
The case of Argentina is significant for the countries of Latin America and the world, in order to learn its lessons for building a more sustainable future. IN this book, Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz analyzes the convergence of mismanagement of national economic policy in Argentina, the pressures of the global economy, and the misguided advice of international institutions.
