This thesis explores the impacts of implementing the Basel Accords on the stability of the banking sector and greater economy, and will particularly focus on Basel II. This study contrasts three Latin American governments that have implemented the Basel Accords. Because Chile's and Brazil's banking sectors have been more successful in implementing the Basel Accords, they will be used as model cases to provide the context to analyze Argentina’s banking sector. The results of this thesis reveal that in order for Argentina to stabilize its banking sector and become a stronger international financial player, it must not only improve the implementation of the Basel Accords, but also simultaneously address discrepancies in political agendas and its banking structure.
