Abstract

Protectionism can take many different forms. In some cases, strong export performance can mislead observers assessing the trade policy of a country. Such is the case with regard to Argentina, where the strong showing in exports is not the result of a strategy of export-led economic growth, but rather reflects a complex strategy of government intervention and isolation from international markets in general.
