Peronism assumed the Presidency of Argentina in the midst of an inherited Last Database crisis, to which was added a world crisis. Given this, the neo-developmentalist government has taken as a mandate to order the macroeconomy and allocate its efforts to Last Database maximize export orientation urgently. In doing this, it accepts the existing productive specialization, based on static Last Database comparative advantages, and ignores considerations regarding the specific actors that embody it, the role of the internal market, local impacts, and the non-commercial pathways through which resources escape.

It left an economy in crisis, irresponsibly and Last Database unsustainably indebted, to the point of having to modify the maturity profile coercively (without the consent of the creditors) and reinstate the exchange controls that the government itself had repudiated when it took office four years earlier.
Given this, the first action of the Peronist president, who Last Database won in tandem with Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, was to convene the Roundtable Against Hunger, a multisectoral body for dialogue to attend to what was correctly identified as the most urgent need. Consistent with his previous programmatic proposals, this mechanism would be activated on Last Database different occasions to strengthen government actions beyond presidential power.1.

The impossible promise that the change will be.
