Over the past two decades, Argentina has faced a lot of changes in the economic and social sector. In the 1980’s, when Argentina was going through major structural adjustments and going back to the populist regime, income inequality among households was affected by growing unemployment due to past crises. This was reflected on the loss of jobs of a big part of low-income groups and in the increase in differential wages between the rich and the poor. In the late 1980’s, another economical crisis hit the country and it drove it to the hyperinflation period, where the biggest jump to inequality occurred. The 90’s reform brought a restructuring labor system, which only increased even more the unemployment rate and the gap between the high-skilled population and the majority: the unskilled.
During this period The USA had become the world's largest economic power, making up 27% of the world's economy compared to the 19% in 1913. The First and Second World Wars that occurred during the British Imperial Era may explain the decline of Britain as an economic power by 1950. During these wars, Britain had to invest heavily in munitions and equipment, borrowing heavily from the US to help fund its expenditure. With Britain indebted to America, and struggling to maintain an empire after the economic impact of the Second World War, it is unsurprising to see a decline in Britain's economic strength, with an increase in American economic influence. During the Cold War era, the USA's economic position may have been strengthened due to its increasing political influence as one of the world's leading powers alongside The USSR, which had a GDP that made up 10% of the world's economy in 1950.

Exports fell by 12% in the 1770s and national debt increased by 91%. The first few months when Pitt came to power, government debt stood at £242.9 million, (this was a huge amount in those days). That was twenty times the annual revenue of £12.5 million from taxes; national bankruptcy was a strong possibility. Stocks went down by more than 17% during 1783, this reflected declining confidence within the government. The detrimental effects of the war in America where Britain had been humiliated had caused all these problems.
The collapse of the housing market and unemployment caused the most damage. Between 1991 to 1992 unemployment had gone back up to 2.6 million.
