Former Economy Minister Domingo Cavallo (1991-1996, 2001) is back in Buenos Aires to present his new book Road to Stability and is planning to stay here, after teaching for many years at universities in the United States. His dollar/peso convertibility plan, implemented in the 1990s, was strongly related to Argentina’s foreign debt, which makes him a key source with regard to the current struggle against the “vulture” funds. As a matter of fact, he had a high level of responsibility in several debt swaps and left Fernando de la Rúa’s presidency only three weeks before the 2001 default, amid the worst social crisis in Argentine history. Cavallo welcomed the Herald in his office in Barrio Parque, surrounded by a wall of university diplomas from all over the world.
