During the last 15 years, the former “star pupil” of the Washington Consensus, Argentina, has witnessed a dramatic turn of international economic regime. Having pursued a markedly neoliberal economic agenda previous to the 2001 financial crisis, external and internal factors now suggest a structural shift in Argentine politics. Using regime theory and theoretical concepts by international relations theorist Evelyn Goh, this study investigates the implications of a changing US hegemony on Argentine compliance with the leading international economic regime of the unipolar world order.
