Once a very rich country, Argentina found itself in a precarious situation when the government decided to take on the debts of foreign banks in their national debt.
The situation didn't improve during the dictatorship of the 1970s. Although the government eventually changed over to a democratic one in the 1980s, an elite group continued to grow rich and the debt continued to rise, with nine million Argentineans living in abject poverty, neglected by their government.
But in December 2001, the people of Argentina rose up against the mess that their corrupted leaders had created.
