LEIRAS, MARCELO  y  CRUZALEGUI, INÉS.  Argentina: Macro-economic Problems, Social Conflict and Weakening of the Governing Coalition. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.2, pp.223-246. ISSN 0718-090X.

In 2008, difficulties found in the resolution of macro-economic problems weakened the liases of support of the Argentine national government. This common occurrence, in this case presents singular traits. It takes place after four years of good social and economic performance and follows an electoral result clearly favorable to the incumbent government. In order to increase public income, the national government proposed to increase agricultural export duties. Agricultural producers and their representativeorganizations forcefully'resisted theproposal,wMchwas eventually defeatedinCongress. After the legislative defeat and a fall in public approval ratings, the government partially recomposed its position, leaning on the basic structure of its legislative coalition and promoting proposals that could gather support from ideologically motivated allies. The impact of the international economic crisis and the result of the 2009 mid-term elections will test the robustness of the recomposed coalition.

Palabras clave : Tiscal balance; inflation; social conflict; party system denationalization.
