Abstract

In this paper we provide a reviewt of the evolution of Argentinean foreign debt in the long run and the macroeconomic policies that contributed to its emergence. In particular, we focus on what exactly happened in the nineties in Argentina. We analyze the evolution of the public sector’s financial obligations after the default and describe the restructuring proposal. We also discuss the relationships between Argentina and the IMF and its repercussions on the underlying international financial architecture.
