BURACHIK, Gustavo. Foreign exchange and imperialism in the Argentine economic crises. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2015, vol.34, n.64, pp.173-197. ISSN 0121-4772.

This article discusses the nature of economic crises in Argentina. The usual view relates them to a juncture of foreign exchange shortages. This essay argues a different point of view. The starting point of the analysis is the theory of imperialism. Certain features that emerged in the early twentieth century strongly affected economic relations between countries in the world economy. The analysis seeks to associate inward and outward foreign exchange to and from Argentina, and its economic crisis, with these historical conditions.

Keywords : Economic crisis; economic and business cycles; balance of payment crisis; imperialism; dependency theory.
