Argentina: A Legal Toolbox for an Unprecedented Crisis
Argentina presents multiple crisis scenarios. These include high inflation rates (with the ever-present risk of hyperinflation), a steep reduction in economic activity as a result of the pandemic and the lockdown measures adopted by the government and, finally, a significant part of the population crossing the line into poverty. A great number of companies may have already entered ‘survival’ mode. Many others are in the process of failing and putting an abrupt end to their activities, not all in an orderly fashion. Government aid for those who can procure it may ultimately prove insufficient.
