Martín Lousteau analyzes in depth the problems that led Argentina to repeat economic and social crises, and provides the necessary keys to build an efficient state in the long term. Argentina seems to have sunk. Almost half a century of poor economic performance, recurring problems and a deteriorated social fabric are the hallmarks of that clear decline. What we see is just the tip of the iceberg because, if we do not do something radically different, things will tend to get worse. If we submerge the head and open our eyes, we will find the cause of the Argentine decline. Underwater is an underwater tour to understand what happens and how to modify it. A book to get wet and hold your breath.
