A brief history of the country

The history of Argentina began in 1776 with the creation of the Virreinato del Río de la Plata, the name given to the colonial territories of Spain. Afterward, in 1810, Argentina initiated a process that led to independence in 1816. However, for over sixty years there were internal battles for control of income from Customs, monopolized by the Province of Buenos Aires.

Then, after this period of civil war, the country began a process of modernization in 1880. As a matter of fact, it was the creation of new public institutions and efforts to incorporate the country into the international system of division of labor as an agricultural commodity producer. Additionally, at the beginning of the twentieth century, Argentina followed an agro-export economic model which placed it as a leader in the world economy.

This model was based on three pillars. For instance, a) high prices of commodities, b) incorporation of extensive croplands to the production process, c) and the incorporation of hundreds of thousands of relatively highly-skilled immigrants to the labor market. Then, between 1930 and 1983 there was a period of institutional instability, with a rotation of civilian and military governments.

Nevertheless, the effects of the Great Depression severely affected the country in the thirties. Mainly due to a drop in trade and export volumes. Actually, from the beginning of the fifties into the seventies, Argentina changed its economic model to substitute imports, in an attempt to create an industrialized economy. However, in the seventies, under a new military regime, the country adopted an open economic model, eliminating mechanisms to protect the industry.

Once democracy returned in the early eighties, the country faltered in finding a clear path to growth. Likewise, GPD was stagnant, as in most Latin American countries, with episodes of hyperinflation toward the end of the decade. Later on, at the beginning of the nineties, Argentina adopted a convertibility plan with a pegged exchange rate. Afterward, many of the country’s public utility companies were privatized during this decade.
