This independent study thesis is a broad survey of Argentine economic history from 1880 to 1976, specifically exploring the effects of international events on a developing postcolonial nation. This study follows the course of events that led Argentina from an export-led economy to an isolationist economy. Moreover, this study explains the failures and dangers of an isolated economy. As a result, this study offers insight into the general process of development and industrialization.
