América Latina, el FMI y el Banco Mundial: ¿Más de lo mismo?

February 27, 2020

Durante aproximadamente 12 años, América Latina logró superar su histórica adicción a préstamos del Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI). Sin embargo, el período de "abstinencia" iniciado en el 2005 llegó a su fin en Junio del 2018, cuando Argentina, sumergida en una nueva crisis económica, se convirtió en el primer país de la región en volver a firmar un acuerdo con el FMI para ser seguida solo por Ecuador. Es precisamente ese acuerdo, el más grande en la historia de la institución financiera, el que hoy mantiene a la Argentina sumergida en intensas negociaciones para reestructurar su ya insostenible deuda con dicha institución.
