On December 10, Argentina will inaugurate Alberto Fernandez as President amid a medley of economic woes: recession, inflation, poverty, foreign debt and currency devaluation. But how the longtime previously-behind-the-scenes political operative for the Peronist party plans to tackle the crisis remains a mystery. Fernandez was vague and elusive about his proposals on the campaign trail. Ben Gedan, director of the Woodrow Wilson Center's Argentina Project and former South America director on the National Security Council at the White House, explains what we can expect from the incoming administration. Despite Fernandez’s decisive victory over center-right incumbent Mauricio Macri, there are more questions than answers about the direction he will take the South American giant.
