Thursday, May 2, 2019

Speakers:

In AS/COA’s annual New York event with the Fundación de Investigaciones Económicas Latinoamericanas (FIEL), a leading think tank based in Argentina, chief economists provided analysis on the country's economic prospects as Argentina prepares for general elections in October. The worst of the country's recent recession is over—“unless the new administration decides to commit suicide,” said Daniel Artana, referring to the potential for a reversal in economic policy. The economists broke down the data in relation to the Macri administration's policies on inflation, the exchange rate, and fiscal subsidies and concurred that it's essential for the next government to implement structural reforms in order to bring macroeconomic stability to the country.
