In the ephemeris of September 15 These events that occurred on a day like today in Argentina and the world stand out:
● 1876. The first issue of the Buenos Aires Herald. The English-language newspaper remained on the streets until its closure in 2017. It went down in history for its firm defense of human rights by denouncing on its pages the disappearances during the last dictatorship, a position that forced its director, Robert Cox , to leave the country in 1979.

He left the bank in 1989 and got it back three years later. In 1996 he became the first head of the Buenos Aires government. He defeated Graciela Fernández Meijide in the Alliance internal and then beat Eduardo Duhalde. His government was not different from that of Carlos Menem: he maintained convertibility and adjustments to sustain a shaky model. Vice President Carlos Álvarez resigned due to the bribery scandal in the Senate, which undermined the Alliance government. After the failure of Ricardo López Murphy, Domingo Cavallo was played, but everything got worse. The corralito of December 1, 2001 led to the total crisis and a state of siege on December 19, in a day of incidents. De la Rúa resigned the next day, in the midst of a tremendous repression with more than thirty deaths.

Europe allocates 42 billion euros to curb the expansion of the crisis. The next day, the Federal Reserve takes 80 percent of AIG’s shares by shelling out $ 85 billion to avoid its bankruptcy. The fall of Lehman Brothers marks the pulse of an international financial crisis of a magnitude never seen before.
