I highly recommend Klaus Veigel's "Dictatorship, Democracy, and Globalization." In addition to providing fresh new insights regarding the disintegration of the Argentine economy in the late 20th century, Veigel's book is an important cautionary tale regarding the bankrupting of a country by its short-sighted political elite. The book is highly relevant to all students of economic crises, and to anyone following the present fiscal predicament of the United States.

Students of Latin American history and of economic crisis management both would benefit strongly from reading of this excellent book. Veigel's close dissection of the multiple economic crises in Argentina provides a cautionary tale of bad economics and bad politics. Broader lessons can be also drawn today for how bad management can turn economic troubles into full blown crisis. The inability to "learn lessons" from crisis to crisis, and the (ongoing) failure of Argentina's leadership are also on full display. Veigel's first rate research sees him interview all of the key (living) players in this crisis, and very few come out with their reputations intact.
