About the Authors
  • Not since the publication of Carlos Díaz Alejandro's Essays on the Economic History of the Argentine Republic in 1970 has there been a new standard reference for those seeking a more quantitative understanding of Argentina's development. Research in the "new economic history" in the intervening years has led to a more sophisticated interpretation of the past. This book provides access to the latest research, focusing on long-run economic change, major developments in policymaking, and important shifts in institutions and ideas. The lessons from Argentina's turbulent economic past represent the essential context for the issues that confront scholars, students, and policymakers today.

    • Each chapter in the book is written by the undisputed contemporary experts in the field
    • The book covers all major areas of the economy since independence
    • No remotely comparable book had been published since 1970, yet the 'Argentine problem' was even more pressing at the time of publication and in need of broader understanding

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Argentina in 2003 is a middle income developing country. Argentina circa 1914 was one of the wealthiest countries in the world, with a GDP more than twice the average for Latin America and Southern Europe. How Argentina fell off its pre-1914 growth path is the subject of this extremely useful volume that brings together the most recent research by economists, political scientists, and historians. This collection of essays will be the standard study of the Argentine climacteric for decades to come." Stephen Haber, A.A. and Jeanne Welch Milligan Professor, Political Science; and Peter and Helen Bing Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

    "This book provides the best and most comprehensive assessment of Argentina's economic history since Carlos Diaz-Alejandroas classic Essays, and supersedes it for the wide range of topics and the analytical depth with which they are examined. It is highly recommended for the professional economist who wants to experience how deeply macroeconomic behavior is connected to politics in real life and for those who need to be persuaded that applying macroeconomics to history helps decisively to improve historical narrative." Leandro Prados de la Escosura, Universidad Carlos III, Madrid

    "At the beginning of the twentieth century, Argentina was an affluent society, the most dynamic country in the global system attracting an unprecedented volume of foreign investment and massive flows immigrants. By the end of the century, the former bread basket of the world had become a basket case. A New Economic History of Argentina provides the definitive explanation of how this came about. This outstanding collection of essays assembled by della Paolera and Taylor signals a major advance in research on the Argentine Paradox." Colin M. Lewis, Associate Professor of Latin American Economic History, London School of Economics & Political Science.

    "provides new information about Argentine economic history and offers fresh perspectives on the Argentine economy."
