Argentina History Edit

From 1946 to 1955 Argentina was ruled by a dictator named Juan Peron, a man who supported minimum wage workers and businesses. Peron set goals to industrialize Argentina and invested in it's steel and iron industries, as well as farming and industrial machinery. Under Peron Argentina's economy improved vastly. Peron also created a constitution that allowed himself to be reelected as president, as well as legislations that would silence his critics. But by the 1950's Argentina was weakened by drought and debt and eventually Juan Peron was ousted by the military. However, he came back into power in 1973 but died in 1974. His third wife, Isabel Peron succeeded him and took power as president, but she faced economic and political crises and the military eventually took over her position. Finally, in 1983 an elected government restored democracy in Argentina, a democracy that still survives today.


Current Issues Within Argentina Edit

Argentina’s current issues mainly concern the country's decaying environment. Argentina’s poor water and air quality have lead to deforestation and bad soil.If these conditions continue to eat at Argentina’s wonderful landscapes, forests, and farmlands, much of the country's attraction will be lost, this worries the citizens of Argentina that it will turn tourism and bring less attraction to the country.. Argentina's economy relies on tourism, so if the environment continues to decay, profit made by tourism in Argenitna will be lost. This issue cannot be directly related to the May revolution. Argentina has been severely struck by global warming. Since the revolution did not cause global warming, it can be concluded that the May Revolution was very beneficial to the country of Argentina.One reason the May Revolution was beneficial to Argentina was it gained Argentina our independence. As seen in our graphs, literacy rates increased because of more opportunities to recieve education were available. Education was expanded to more than just religion, and the entire public was given the opportunity to attend school, not just the wealthy. Finally, as the Junta took over, government improved, the economy stabilized, and the percentage of debt decreased throughout Argentina.
