This lecture will analyze major developments in the Argentine economy from the 2001-2 crisis until today. This has been aperiod marked by significant growth and poverty reduction, but also increasing macroeconomic imbalances. In recent years, the discovery of the second and fourth largest reserves of shale oil and gas in the world have opened new opportunities for Argentina, until today principally exporting agricultural products. This lecture critically discuss the potential and pitfalls of resting future development strategies on shale oil and gas extraction.
