Consolation prize: the darling people at the Facultad de Ciencias Economicas a el Universidad de Buenos Aires (esta “Universidad” masculine?), at which el Museo is housed, gave me some literature from said Museo, in the form of two comic books explaining the problem — I shall have to learn Spanish in order to read them, but it may be worth it.  The cover of one has Uncle Sam kissing someone who is presumably an Argentine businessman or politician, and I suspect the inside is of similar tone; the other is about the IMF.
