Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The object of this report is to examine the role of the IMF in the argentine crises of 1984 – 2003. The first part of the report, will take the reader through a historical presentation of Argentina during the last hundred years, so as to lay out the basic premise of the situation. Then we will present three different theoretical schools, with which we will analyze the situation in Argentina. First, we will analyze the work of the IMF from their own theoretical perspective, grounded in the economic school of monetarism. The conclusions reached in this part of the project will then be brought into question by the theories of development by Dudley Seers. Lastly, we will analyze the framework, which the IMF operates within, that is the world economy, through the spectacles of neomarxism. In the last part of the report, we will summarize how, from the different perspectives presented earlier, the Argentine crises can be interpreted, and give our own humble interpretation of what good development is.
