    Here is a documentary on Argentina after the crisis when people could not withdrawal their money from their bank accounts: (pbs.org/wnet/wideangle/episodes/the-empty-atm/full-episode/670). Here is a blog by an Argentinian who lived through the crisis. He frequently writes about how to survive a currency crisis (ferfal.blogspot.com).

One place you might consider looking for answers is in case studies from Harvard Business School. When I was working an MBA, we studied the default of Argentina as part of our economics coursework.

Other sources for your consideration might include:

  • Back issues of The Economist (magazine)
  • Archives of The Wall Street Journal
  • The World Bank
  • The IMF
