Appeared in Choice on 1985-11:
A 1983 field investigation made before the coming to power of Argentina's civilian government forms the basis of this study of the Argentine economy. Besides providing background material on key sectors, this study serves primarily as a guide to the policy initiatives the World Bank team would recommend in the areas of state planning, the tax system, debt management, agriculture, industry, exports, and the credit sector. The recommendations are consistent with World Bank and International Monetary Fund suggestions to other Latin American nations, particularly in reducing the role of the state and liberalizing the price system. Industrial export growth, the report suggests, offers an opportunity for expanding foreign exchange earnings to repay Argentina's large external debt. The report, however, already is dated and clearly illustrates the distance between orthodox economic policy initiatives and complex economic realities. The statistical appendix should prove a useful resource tool for other investigators. Upper-division undergraduate and graduate collections.-J.L. Dietz, California State University, Fullerton
