Strategic Posture Review: Argentina

Mark P. Jones

Strategic Posture Review: Argentina.

"The behavior of Argentine politicians is fundamentally guided by a pragmatic approach toward politics, within which political elites are far more concerned about the accumulation of power and the control of politically valuable financial and material resources than with ideology and specific policy goals," writes Mark Jones, fellow in political science. "What's more, the time-horizon of Argentine politicians is very limited, with a short-term perspective most commonly dominating their political calculations and thinking."
