Resumen

This paper intends to promote the discussion concerning the explanation of the crisis and the popular insurrection that ended convertibility in Argentina, as well as to consider the consequences of these developments. The first section questions some key aspects of the explanation of the crisis and the popular insurrection which featured in a previous article for Historical Materialism. 1 The second proposes a brief alternative interpretation of the nature and dynamics of convertibility. In the third section, I examine the process of growing social resistance that would set limits to this convertibility. The fourth section focuses on the popular insurrection that took place in December 2001 and on the fall of convertibility. Finally, the paper proposes some tools to understand the consequences of these processes and events.
