Argentina's recent economic history has been marked by significant economic volatility and two major financial crises that each led to a sovereign debt default. What were the key factors that led to the crises and defaults of 1998-2001 and 2018-2020 and could these crises have been averted? What are the global policy lessons one could draw from them and, importantly, what is the outlook for Argentina going forward?  
Join Vladimir Werning (former undersecretary of economic policy coordination and analysis (2017-18), former chief of economic advisors of the Ministry of Finance of Argentina (2016), and former JP Morgan chief economist for Latin America), George Chouliarakis (former finance minister of Greece) and Megan Greene (former market participant) for an in-depth discussion of the policy lessons drawn from the economic history of Argentina 20 years since the 2001 default.
