Abstract

Global financial structures and domestic monetary policy are inextricably intertwined and difficult to understand. Latin America has garnered significant attention from scholras concerned with the relationship between currency, economic policy, and global structures, as the region has suffered significant and regular financial and monetary crises since the 1970s. The scholarly debate continues to consider the most important factors of economic crises in Latin America. Some argue domestic factors and poor policy choices by national governments explain the bulk of the crises, while others emphasize international power structures as playing an outsized role. Employing dependency theory, I investigate the relationship between Argentina's many economic crises, the global financial system, and its principal actors. Global financial structures play a significant part in the financial maladies of developing countries, as evidenced by case studies of Argentina from 2001 to the present.
