This paper analyzes the current economic and subsequent political crisis facing Argentina. The paper begins with a history of Argentina, from a political point of view, citing years of internal conflict as one of the causes of the current situation. The writer concludes that while there were many indicators leading up to the crisis, the hyperinflation and problems with investment and unemployment are only symptoms of more fundamental problems in Argentina.

From the Paper:

"Officially the Argentine Republic, Argentina is a country occupying most of the southern portion, or southern cone, of South America. Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world (it has an area of 1,073,399 square miles, roughly larger than Mexico and the U.S. state of Texas combined). The population of Argentina in July 2001 was estimated at 37,384,816. Argentina is bounded by Chile to the south and west, Bolivia and Paraguay to the north, and Brazil, Uruguay, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Buenos Aires is the nation's capital. Throughout its history and like most of its neighbors, Argentina has repeatedly been subject to rule by a "caudillo figure," or a strong leader, often from the military, who dominated the nation, usually until he was deposed or died."
