Argentina: Past, Present, and Future

Click here to access "The Macri Government's Reform Program: A Scorecard"

Mauricio Macri recently completed his first year as Argentina’s President- a year of advancements by the Executive and Legislative branches of power in trying to further a broad range of reforms in the political, economic and social sectors. This whirlwind of activity has left many convinced that Argentina is moving quickly and deliberately to turn the corner on a history of intense growth spurts followed by severe economic crises. Is this really a turning point?

Join the CSIS Americas Program for a public presentation looking at the first year of the Macri Administration and at the challenges that lie ahead in 2017 and beyond. This presentation will include:

  • The launch of a new CSIS microsite, "The Macri Government's Reform Program: A Scorecard." This innovative microsite identifies the key reforms undertaken by Argentina over the last year, synthesizing the reforms and providing a user-friendly database.
  • Presentation by noted Argentine economist and historian, Emilio Ocampo, providing a historic perspective on the latest reform efforts.

Emilio Ocampo is a financial consultant based in Buenos Aires, author of seven books on history, finance and economics, and a professor at Universidad del CEMA, Argentina and at New York University’s Stern School of Business. His background combines over twenty years of corporate finance, capital markets, private equity experience in Latin America, Europe and the US with recognized leadership and involvement in the non-profit sector. He has an MBA degree from the University of Chicago’s Booth Graduate School of Business (1990) and a graduate degree in Economics from the University of Buenos Aires (1985).
