Argentina for most of its history was wealthier and more developed than Australia up to the 1960s . The issue here is not the imf but the casial and blatant acceptance of corruption prevalent here . You mentioned Chile but they have always spoken out and are not the type of people who would have tolerated the living situation of the Argentinian people with tremendous financial restrictions. very high inflation . and devaluations. The argentinian people casual acceptance of this has created that these abuses continue .Argentina is obviously not a stable developed nation like Australia. Its democracy is literally only 40 years old and it has been ravaged by predatory IMF loans no less than 3 times in that period... And Chile is a nation that still uses the constitution of the dictator Pinochet. It currently has 2million people protesting in the streets, about 500 of them have been intentionally blinded by police.
