Realizing Argentina’s Potential

21 January 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Chatham House, London


Dr Walter Molano, Managing Partner, BCP Securities; Author, In the Land of Silver: 200 Years of Argentine Political-Economic Development
Chair: Celia Szusterman, Director, Latin America Programme, The Institute for Statecraft



Dr Walter Molano argues that the economic decline that Argentina experienced during the latter half of the 20th century was due to the country’s unique geography and the concentration of power in Buenos Aires. He suggests that the key to Argentina’s future development will be a process of decentralization that will allow the country to fully optimize the resources at its disposal.

This event is held in association with the Institute of Latin American Studies.
