ArgentinaPulse Poll #1 | Argentines' Perceptions of the World Order, Foreign Policy, and Global Issues
In June, the International Monetary Fund approved a historic bailout of Argentina’s troubled economy, offering a $50 billion loan to prevent a debt crisis and put an end to the peso’s staggering freefall. That rescue, however, has not endeared the IMF to most Argentines, according to a new poll by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and Poliarquía, the ArgentinaPulse.
The national survey, conducted in August, found that 56 percent of Argentines dislike the IMF – the lowest ranking of any international organization included in the poll. By contrast, just 21 percent of respondents were critical of the United Nations.
This finding is only one of many from the first ArgentinaPulse poll. In a new report, Poliarquía and the Wilson Center unpack Argentines' opinions on topics ranging from the United States and President Donald Trump to the current and future world order.
