(Penn State University Press)  Tracing the collapse of the Argentine economy in 2001, the author follows the rise and fall of the corporatist system of interest representation and state-led, inward-oriented economic policies. The author argues that the breakdown of the corporatist system in the 70s, and failure to create a new social consensus with respect to Argentina’s economic order, resulted in country’s economic collapse.  Veigel lives and works in Washington, D.C.
