The Future of Argentina: A Conversation with José Luis Espert

*THIS SEMINAR WILL BE IN SPANISH, WITHOUT SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION AVAILABLE.
 

José Luis Espert, a well-known economist, author and long-time political commentator, launched his presidential campaign in December as the candidate for the newly launched Libertarian Party. Though President Mauricio Macri’s gradual fiscal austerity and market liberalization program has produced mixed results, Mr. Espert promises a supercharged free-market reform program.

Mr. Espert has proposed reforms to include budget cuts, tax cuts, trade liberalization, labor market reform and privatizations. His ambitious reform agenda has sparked renewed debate over the direction of Argentina’s economy, and its private sector’s willingness to adapt.

Please join us on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 to discuss Argentina’s economic challenges and its changing political landscape in advance of this year’s elections.
