Economic Controversies in Argentina from the 1920s to the 1940s
This paper will deal with economic controversy rather than performance for the Argentine economy from the 1920s. It covers a period when Argentina, after the great turn-of-the-century expansion, began to close its economy. One can see how an increasing ambiguity crept into the principal policies of the inter-war period, particularly when compared with the confident assumptions before the First World War. However, it was not until the end of the Second World War that a conscious inward-looking strategy was pursued, and this was a phenomenon which continued in practice until the 1960s. From then on, doubts began to mount; even if reluctantly, the country began to try more open strategies.
