http://fpc.state.gov/documents/organization/8040.pdfArgentina’s current crisis resulted from a confluence of events, some external to
Argentina’s policy process, others directly related to its political and economic choices.

situation turned into a crisis, it is clear that by early 2001, political, economic and social

events from before Argentina’s adoption of the currency board in 1991 to developments
in early 2002. This report will be updated periodically.
